Restore Your Smile With Dental Implants

If you’ve suffered the loss of a tooth or multiple teeth from a contact injury, infection, or other reason, you should consult with your dentist immediately. If left untreated, your other teeth can start to shift and wear down due to the uneven distribution of pressure from your bite. Your dentist can provide you with several options to replace your lost teeth. One way to restore your smile is with dental implants. Dental implants are a fantastic way to replace the form and function of your lost tooth.

Post Yourself Up For Success

Dental implants are an advanced prosthetic used to replace missing teeth. The procedure involves placing a titanium post into your jawbone. The post is made of titanium, which is a biocompatible material that can fuse to your jawbone as it heals. This fusing process (known as osseointegration) allows the post to replace the supportive root system that your lost tooth had.

After the implant post has fused, a dental crown is then attached to the top of the post. The dental crown is formed by your dentist to look and function like a natural tooth would. Replacing your lost tooth as soon as possible with a dental implant is important to prevent the wearing down of your teeth and jaw bone.

Dental implants offer an almost complete replacement of your lost tooth, from its root structure to everything above the gumline. They also encourage your body to send signals to your jawbone to remain strong and healthy, preventing deterioration of your jaw and its joints.
