Tooth loss can be so worrying for patients. Maybe they experienced injuries to the mouth that brought about a lost tooth, or maybe they managed extreme periodontal disease that has made them lose one or more teeth. Whatever the concern, it is important that patients seek restoration of their smile as quickly as time permits for full function and beauty. Dental implants are a commonplace solution for patients who have lost at least one tooth and need a permanent solution that works!
WHAT IS A DENTAL IMPLANT?
Titanium metal posts that are set into the bone of the jaw to act as a natural tooth root are called dental implants. These are placed over the top with various sorts of restorations including dental crowns, dental extensions, and dentures. These flexible restorations are biocompatible with the body and can offer patients the chance to achieve the smile they’ve always wanted, even after they have experienced catastrophic tooth loss.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR A DENTAL IMPLANT?
The dental implant uses the jawbone as the foundation for its restoration. This allows for full stability and strength. However, without this bone, the placement of a dental implant is often unsuccessful. We welcome patients to come into our office and have x-rays completed to guarantee that there is
sufficient bone of the jaw for the successful placement of the implant. This guarantees long-term success and a proper foundation for the restoration being placed onto the projection of the implant.
