Dental implants are artificial metal tooth roots that anchor crowns, bridges, or dentures to replace missing permanent teeth. Your dentist can implant them into your jawbone, where bone heals around the implants to secure your new teeth in place. Implants can replace some or all of your natural teeth.
Some of the many benefits you can experience with dental implants include:
Dental implants and the artificial teeth they anchor look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. They can give you the gorgeous smile of your dreams.
To find out if dental implants are the right cosmetic procedure for you, your dentist reviews your oral health history and examines your teeth and gums. They take dental X-rays to get an in-depth picture of your oral health.
If you don’t have enough jawbone to support dental implants, your dentist might recommend you first undergo a bone grafting procedure to strengthen and increase jaw bone mass. They personalize each cosmetic dental procedure to make your teeth and smile beautiful.
The first step of getting dental implants is surgical placement of the implants into your jawbone. Your dentist first numbs the treatment area to avoid any discomfort.
After a period of healing, you return to the Smiling Molar Dental office to get fitted for crowns, bridges, or dentures. Your dentist places tiny attachment pieces (abutments) on the implants. When your new teeth are ready, your dentist secures them to the abutments to perfect your smile.
Take good care of your dental implants by brushing your teeth after meals, flossing daily, and not chewing on hard objects. Wear a mouthguard if you grind your teeth at night and see the Smiling Molar Dental team every six months for dental cleanings and exams.
Don’t live with gaps left by missing permanent teeth when a beautiful smile awaits you at Smiling Molar Dental. Call the office to schedule an appointment or book one online today to find out if dental implants are right for you.
