Are you interested in getting dental implants? Dental implants can be very beneficial in that they are the closest thing to an actual tooth. Unlike dentures or bridges, they are a more permanent and comfortable solution. They also won’t cause decay to your teeth over time. If you’ve been interested in getting dental implants and have wanted to know more, we’d like to take a moment of your day to show you how dental implants work.
- The first step in this process is to surgically place a titanium post into the jawbone. This post is the dental implant part of the procedure.
- The next thing to do is to let the site heal. This will give the implant time to fuse to the jawbone.
- After the healing process is complete, the implant will have bonded with the jawbone which will create a strong foundation for the replacement tooth. At this point, an abutment (connector) is placed on the implant. This will be used to connect the dental implant to the new tooth.
- Finally, your new tooth is affixed to the abutment and your smile is restored to its former glory.
Because of the permanence and comfort provided by dental implants, there is really no question which way to go when you compare this solution to the options of dentures or bridges. If you are interested in getting dental implants, please contact us so that we can schedule a consultation with you. We look forward to giving you a new reason to smile!
