What happens when you don’t replace missing teeth is much more serious than aesthetic. If you are minus a few teeth, you may have already found that it’s more difficult to eat, speak or smile with confidence. We offer affordable dental implants that reshape the structure of your smile, restoring the aesthetics and functions of your teeth. Implants are custom-made to match exisiting teeth, and our dentists work with you step by step to deliver the smile of your dreams.
what are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically implanted into the jaw to replace missing teeth. They can prevent further bone loss by providing a strong foundation for replacement teeth and act as an anchor for crowns. Once the implant has fused to the jaw bone the dentist attaches a crown or cap to the abutment, filling in the space where the missing tooth was. Though the implant process is not complicated, it requires several steps. To begin with, a pin is implanted into your jawbone. After a few weeks of healing, the bone fuses to the implant. Your dentist then attaches a small connector post or abutment to the implant: this will hold your new tooth. Your dentist creates this new tooth from an impression, making sure that it will work together with all of your teeth to provide a healthy bite.
