Dental implants are the best way to repair a smile marred by missing teeth. Implants are custom made and carefully placed to look and function just like your natural teeth.
Making Your Smile the Best It Can Be
If you are missing a tooth, you might feel self-conscious about your smile. However, you might be hesitant about replacing your missing tooth or teeth because you are afraid the new tooth might look bulky, discolored, or just “fake.” Or you might prefer not to have dentures because they can be uncomfortable and can shift in the mouth while you speak, eat or talk.
Dental implants provide an answer to all these concerns. Implants are custom made not only to fit your mouth but to match the color, shape and look of your other teeth. Implants are permanent, and do not have to be removed to be cleaned, nor do they require special cleaning substances or adhesives. They also do not add bulk to the mouth because they are implanted directly in the jawbone.
The Dental Implant Procedure
The procedure for placing dental implants usually involves two steps. In the first, the root portion of the implant is placed in the jawbone. Over the next few weeks, it heals in such a way that it bonds to the bone. After this healing period, custom made prosthetic teeth are added, giving you a perfect smile. These teeth are long-lasting and durable, and will keep your smile shining for many years.
