If you are in search of a lasting replacement for your missing teeth, dental implants could be the answer! Missing teeth can lead to bone loss, can allow other teeth to shift out of place and can make eating and talking uncomfortable. Dental implants provide an alternative to living with missing teeth and they even look and feel just like natural teeth.
What is the Implant Process?
Dental implants are composed of 3 parts: the implant itself, the abutment and the dental crown. Each part has to be placed at different times due to the healing process that needs to happen in-between. The entire treatment process can take up to several months before the placement of an implant is fully complete. This may seem like a long time, but it is well worth it! By taking the time needed to properly place an implant, the result will be a lasting replacement for your smile.
Does an Implant Look Natural?
We’re glad you asked! Dental implants look and feel natural thanks to advanced dental technology. The crown that is secured in the place of your missing tooth will have a custom-fit for your smile. In addition, your crown will be color-matched to your surrounding teeth to help it blend in even more. Our goal is for everyone you know to completely forget that you were ever missing a tooth in the first place!
Will My Implant Last a Long Time?
Yes! With proper upkeep, your dental implant is made to last over 30 years! At scheduled dental check-ups, your dentist will regularly check your implant to ensure that no adjustments or maintenance are needed. If necessary, adjustments and repairs can be made periodically to keep your implant strong and secure.
