Why Choose Dental Implants
There’s nothing to smile about when it comes to missing teeth. Whether you lost one or more of your pearly whites, dental implants can help bring your smile, your confidence, and your life back.
What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are the perfect option for a beautiful, more natural looking smile that will never be out of place. You never have to worry about flashing that wide smile, eating comfortably or speaking clearly because dental implants can make you feel as if you never lost your teeth at all.
A dental implant is your fixed, more permanent, and more authentic-looking solution to missing teeth. With this procedure, a metal screw is surgically positioned into the jawbone, where a false tooth or crown is attached to fill the gap of the missing tooth. The result is a set of false teeth that are securely fused into your jawbone so they blend right in with the rest of your teeth.
How Do I Get a Dental Implant?
Getting a dental implant is pretty straightforward, though the process make take several months to complete.
First, your dentist would take a look at your bone structure. A series of scans will be conducted for positioning and to check if you have enough healthy bone for the implant. Then, surgery takes place wherein a screw, typically made of titanium, is placed into your jaw bone to replace the root of your missing teeth.
The implant will be left to fuse with your bone for two to six months. During this time, a temporary crown will be placed as substitute to your missing teeth. Once your bone has securely grown around the implant, the temporary crown is removed. This is then replaced with a permanent crown designed to perfectly match the rest of your natural teeth.
Dental implants are great for replacing a tooth or even all your teeth. A full arch or a full mouth of teeth can be easily created using only four implants, giving you a complete set of new pearly whites that fit snugly and comfortably like your real teeth—or even better!
