What Are Dental Implants?
If you have missing teeth, dental implants are the best option for you. Dental implants are one of the most reliable and efficient ways to replace missing teeth. This procedure includes surgically inserting metal posts or frames into your jawbone, right beneath your gums. After these are in place, your dentist will attach replacement teeth onto your metal posts. Your dental implants will blend in with the rest of your smile, looking just like your natural teeth. Not only do dental implants look natural, but they will improve your speech, keep the rest of your teeth straight and make eating more comfortable. Implants are durable and will last many years, even a lifetime with proper care. Affordable dental implants eliminate the need for messy adhesives associated with dentures and the necessity to remove your teeth at night.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Our dental implant process begins with a consultation. Our staff will meet with you to examine your teeth, go over your options and help you make a decision. Not only is our primary goal your oral health, but we want to guarantee that you get the results you want.
Under sedation, a titanium post in embedded into the jawbone where the missing tooth or teeth were. This is so your implants function as a sturdy foundation for your artificial tooth. The implant needs time to fully adhere to your bone, which usually takes a few weeks to a month. Once healed, a custom-made prosthesis like a crown, a bridge or a partial is secured to the implanted post. From here you can eat and drink what you would like, no longer hindered by missing teeth.
