If you’re missing one or more teeth, a dental implant may be a great solution. Dental implants are also a great way to secure dentures in place, so you no longer have to struggle with loose or ill-fitting dentures that constantly move around.
Dental implants are essentially hardware used to replace the roots of the tooth or teeth you have lost, to secure replacement teeth in place.
Dental implants are titanium rods that we surgically place into your jawbone. Your jawbone will bond with the titanium to hold it in place, then we’ll use the implant or implants to secure a crown, bridge, or dentures.
The procedure usually takes a couple visits. Thanks to our many comfort options, the procedure is painless and manageable for just about anyone.
To relieve any discomfort you experience after the procedure, we typically suggest over-the-counter pain medication.
Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth. In no time at all, you can go from having an embarrassing, gapped smile to a full set of teeth you’ll be proud to show off.
Additionally, because missing teeth can cause your face to look sunken in, dental implants help maintain the natural shape of your face. You can be proud to show off your smile and no one will be able to tell you’ve had work done unless you tell them of course!
If you’ve been living with missing teeth, chances are you miss eating some of your favorite foods. It can be hard to take a bite or chew food when you’re missing teeth. Fortunately, you can eat just about anything you want with dental implants. They’re just as durable, if not even more so, than your natural teeth.
With proper care, your dental implants can last decades and even a lifetime. Because implants are a long-term solution, you don’t have to worry about them any more than you would your natural teeth. While some adjustments might need to be made if necessary, we want you to feel confident that your dental implants are reliable and secure.
Because dental implants function just like your natural teeth, no extra care is required to maintain them. If you maintain good oral hygiene habits, your dental implants will be well taken care of. Remember to brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss daily, and see us for a teeth cleaning and checkup at least twice a year.
When you lose a tooth, the healthy teeth on either side of the gap can shift. That movement can cause problems for your teeth, gums, and overall oral health. Dental implants are placed in your jawbone where your missing tooth used to be to prevent that shift. Dental implants also protect the bone where your tooth was lost by preventing deterioration.
