Missing teeth can affect your daily life as well as your self-esteem. Whether you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants can provide a long-lasting solution for your smile! Made to both look and feel natural, a dental implant can give you a tooth replacement that lasts for years to come. When you are missing a tooth, there are many side effects that can affect the health of your smile. Missing teeth can cause other teeth to shift out of place and also lead to bone loss in your jaw. Replacing missing teeth is not only great for your confidence and but for your oral health as well!
The dental implant process stretches over the course of several months. Although the implant process is lengthy, the end result is a tooth replacement that is made to last a lifetime! The first step is to make sure that your jaw bone can support the dental implant. After this step, the abutment and post are all placed. Each of these placements are spread out to give the restoration time to heal before moving to the next step. The final step of the dental implant process is placing the dental crown. A crown will be custom-made to fit your smile. Dental crowns are color-matched to surrounding teeth and made to feel like a natural tooth. Dental implants are extremely durable because the process involves replacing both the tooth and the root of the tooth. The lengthy implant process results in a long-lasting durable tooth that will boost your confidence and contribute to your oral health.
