Dental Implants May Offer a Practical Solution to
Tooth loss doesn't have to stop
your smile from saying great things about you. Cosmetic dentistry
has many tooth-replacement options that allow you to recapture your
youthful appearance and restore the function of your teeth. One
which we might recommend is a dental implant.
Dental implants provide a look and feel that's very close to natural
teeth. Implants are metal posts or frames surgically placed beneath
your gums. After placement, the implants fuse to the bone of your
jaw and act as artificial tooth roots. Replacement teeth are
attached to the implant.
The implant remains below your gums and the bone grows to hold the
implant securely in place. This allows the implant to function much
like the root of your tooth, providing a stable structure that will
eventually become the base structure for a new crown. We will
usually wait several weeks before proceeding with a crown in order
to be sure the implant is ready to support a new crown. We will
provide you with a temporary appliance to wear during this process.
