If you’ve ever lost a tooth, you know it can be a source of social discomfort and anxiety. Sometimes we can use a bridge to fix the gap, but this isn’t always an option. Dental implants provide a permanent, beautiful solution.
With modern dental technology, your missing tooth can be permanently fixed with a dental implant. Dental implants are specially made titanium posts that are placed into your jawbone. These posts act similarly to tooth roots and allow us a place to secure a dental crown–effectively creating a new tooth.
Dental implants have a number of benefits, including:
- Attaching a porcelain crown to a dental implant allows us to permanently replace a missing tooth. Our team can restore a porcelain crown to a dental implant from the safety and comfort of our office.
- Dental implants have a number of applications. One of the great applications we use dental crowns for at our offices are implant supported dentures. Using dental implants to secure dentures, you can have a permanent denture solution that doesn’t have many of the issues of traditional dentures (such as slippage, clicking, or misalignment), because they are anchored securely.
- Dental implants work a lot like a natural tooth root, helping to strengthen your jaw. Tooth loss removes some of the necessary support that keeps your jawbone healthy, and can result in jawbone deterioration. A tooth implant can help restore strength to your jawbone and keep you and your mouth healthier.
We work closely with a specialist who can perform the dental implant procedure for you. Once the implant has been placed and has had time to heal, we can restore the implant. We can place your new porcelain crown, or if you are getting implant supported dentures we can place them as well.
We are happy to be able to offer this wonderful dental treatment to our patients, because we have seen how it improves lives. If you have any questions about dental implants, please call us today!
