If you are missing one or more teeth, one of the smartest things you can do for your smile is to talk with our prosthodontist about dental implants. Implants look and feel just like your natural teeth and you can brush and floss them normally. Unlike other restorations, a dental implant replaces the tooth root, which helps keep your jawbone strong and healthy.
The implant process begins with a titanium post surgically placed by our prosthodontist directly into your jawbone. That area is then given time to heal. The next step is to place the crown or restoration, which completes your smile. That restoration may take the form of a single tooth, a bridge of even a full denture depending on your needs. The restoration will be designed to fit your mouth perfectly and let you eat, speak and smile as you should.
To be a candidate for dental implants, you need to have healthy gums and be ready to commit to seeing our prosthodontist for follow-up visits. You will also need to brush and floss at least twice a day and avoid habits and activities that may cause your implants to fail. To see if dental implants are right for you, call our team today for your appointment.
