If you lose teeth, you may think you will never have a natural appearing smile again. However, with dental implants, you can restore your smile with permanent restorations that look and feel like natural teeth, giving you back your smile and your self-confidence.
What are dental implants
Dental implants are permanent titanium screws that are secured into your jawbone in the position of your missing tooth. The bone heals around the implant, securing it in place. A natural appearing crown is secured to the implant once it is healed, creating a new tooth.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants look and function very much like natural teeth, giving you back a complete, beautiful smile. You are able to eat any foods of your choosing and speak as if with natural teeth.
For dental implants patients need a full evaluation to determine if adequate bone exists to support a dental implant.
There are a few stages of treatment taking place over several months:
- Treatment planning to ensure suitability
- Dental implant surgery to place the titanium screw in the bone
- Healing time to allow the bone to grow around the implant and secure it in the jaw
- Restoring the tooth with the final crown
