Dental implants are one of the best options for replacing missing teeth! Made to last for years, implants can restore your smile and improve your oral health. We know missing teeth can affect your daily life from making eating difficult to lowering your self-confidence. That is why we recommend dental implants to give you back your smile, helping you feel more confident while protecting your smile from further damage. Implants help keep your other teeth from shifting out of place by filling the gap in your smile. When you are missing teeth, the jaw bone can begin to deteriorate where the tooth once gave it support. Implants help to solve this problem. Improve your smile and boost your confidence at the same time with dental implants!
The process for dental implants involves three main steps – the abutment, post and dental crown. In addition, your jaw bone needs to have enough bone to support the implant. There are steps that can be taken if you have already suffered from bone loss. In between the placement of the abutment, post and crown, time is required to allow for proper healing before moving onto the next step.
The entire implant process from start to finish stretches over several months. Although it’s an investment of time, the end result is worth it! Dental implants provide one of the most durable options for replacing missing teeth. A dental implant replaces not only the tooth, but also the root of the tooth. This allows the implant to stand alone and saves your replacement tooth from relying on other support such as a dental bridge. When the dental crown is ready to be placed, it is custom-made to fit your smile and color-matched to surrounding teeth.
