Even with the latest advances in dental care, millions of people across the United States continue to suffer tooth loss. Whether it be from tooth decay, periodontal disease, or injury, a missing tooth left unattended can create several problems for the surrounding teeth, your gums, and jawbone. Luckily, modern dentistry can offer a dental implant, the fixed solution to restoring your confident smile.
Essentially, dental implants are artificial roots and teeth that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jawbone by a dentist or periodontist. Once placed, these artificial roots bond with your natural bone, creating a strong foundation for one or more crowns.
How can a dental implant benefit me?
– It stimulates the jawbone when chewing, meaning it preserves the jawbone and keeps it healthy.
– A dental implant stops bone loss that occurs when a tooth is missing, and prevents the surrounding teeth from shifting into the space.
– There is no need to reduce the size of neighboring teeth, unlike a traditional bridge.
– An implant is strong, comfortable, and secure. It looks and feels like your natural tooth.
What does getting a dental implant involve?
The process of getting a dental implant requires several stages. These involve the examination, surgery, time for healing, and multiple visits to ensure a successful procedure.
