Are you tired of hiding your smile because of missing teeth? Well, we have great news for you. Dental implants are the ultimate solution to restore your confidence and give you a natural-looking, beautiful smile. Whether you lost a tooth due to injury or decay, dental implants offer a long-lasting and reliable alternative that will make you forget all about those gaps in your mouth.
When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants are the gold standard solution. A thorough examination of your oral health will be conducted by your dentist or oral surgeon. This may include X-rays and scans to assess the condition of your jawbone and determine if you're a suitable candidate for implants. Once it has been established that you're a good candidate, the implant procedure can begin. The first step is usually placing small titanium posts into the jawbone, which act as artificial tooth roots. This process may require minor surgery and is done under local anesthesia to ensure minimal discomfort.
Over time, these titanium posts fuse with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration. This provides a strong foundation for your replacement teeth. After sufficient healing has taken place, abutments are attached to the implanted posts. These abutments serve as connectors between the implant and the prosthetic tooth or crown that will be placed on top. Custom-made crowns or prosthetic teeth are created to match your natural teeth in color, shape, and size. These are then securely attached to the abutments, completing your new smile.
It's important to note that every patient's journey with dental implants may vary depending on their individual needs and circumstances. Your dentist or oral surgeon will guide you throughout each stage of the procedure and provide post-operative care instructions for optimal healing.
Dental implants offer numerous benefits that make them the best solution for replacing missing teeth.
