What Are Dental Implants?

Posted on 2/22/2021 by John Black
What Are Dental Implants?Dental implants act as artificial roots for your tooth. They are shaped like screws and we place these in your jawbone so that they can bond with the natural bone and support your artificial teeth known as crowns. To ensure that your artificial teeth are fully supported we place a connector called abutment above the implant.

These implants can easily support more than one artificial tooth. These teeth are custom-made by us so that it fits perfectly in your mouth and matches the rest of your natural teeth.

Who Needs Dental Implants?

We recommend dental implants for adults that have one or multiple missing teeth. These are also the perfect choice for people who have to get their teeth removed due to an infection, injury, or decay. Our professionals will assess your dental condition and suggest appropriate treatment.

Why Should You Use Dental Implants?

Dental implants will give you the confidence to smile once again since these implants will look and function like your natural teeth. You can also floss and brush them, just like you do with your natural teeth. The best part is that you don't need to remove these at all when brushing or flossing.

Our professionals focus on designing an implant that matches your tooth color, shape, and structure of your natural teeth. This enables the implant to blend in with the rest of your teeth and will look like a complete set.

These implants are sturdy and are made to last for years. If you properly care for them then they can last for decades. Our professionals will give you the right maintenance steps to keep your implants healthy and long-lasting. We also recommended regular dental exams for better oral health. If you are looking to replace your missing tooth permanently, give us a call today so we can assess whether or not a dental implant is a right procedure for you.
