Under the care of an experienced professional, dental implant surgery is one of the safest and smoothest procedures possible.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implant surgery is a time-tested dental procedure that replaces the gap of a missing tooth with a prosthetic tooth. The first step of the surgery begins at the root of your teeth when the dentist either drills or bonds a hollow, usually metal, screw into the jawbone. After that, a small connector, also called an abutment, is attached to the implanted screw. The abutment acts as the “dentin” of your new tooth! Finally, a beautiful, custom-made crown is placed over the top of the abutment. The crown will look as close as possible to the rest of your teeth. Then you have a bright, gorgeous, full smile! The crown acts exactly like the rest of your teeth and you can return to eating, smiling, and talking like you normally were before the missing teeth. The entire process usually takes six to eight months to allow for full healing.
Why Would I Want Implants?
There are lots of benefits to getting implants as opposed to dentures or bridges. Implants offer a more natural look to your smile, one that is often times completely undetectable to you and to others. They are one of the more comfortable options for most patients, with less risk of rubbing, sore spots, or other painful points in the mouth. Implants stand alone, allowing your other teeth to grow and develop naturally; there is no grinding or adhesion to your neighboring teeth. Oftentimes, implants offer a great permanent solution to getting a brighter, healthier smile.
