One of the most natural looking options in restorative dentistry is the dental implant. Whether one tooth or multiple teeth need replacing, dental implants are a permanent solution that restores your mouth to its former glory. Unlike dentures that must be removed or bridges that adhere to other teeth, implants are connected directly to your own jaw, making them as close to natural teeth as you can possibly get. At Meridian Campus Family Dental, we are happy to offer this state-of-the-art smile restoration option to our patients. Isn’t it time you felt confident in your smile again?
THE DENTAL IMPLANT PROCESS
While getting dental implants may seem daunting, it’s actually an incredibly safe procedure that can restore your confidence and your smile. Dental implants are titanium posts that are secured into the jaw bone. The post serves as the “root” of the new tooth and bonds with the bone, creating a fused connection. This serves as an anchor for the restoration that will soon go over the post but also prevents bone loss. Once the post is secure, a natural looking crown is adhered to the post, creating your new tooth. The tooth looks and functions just like your natural teeth. So much so that many people won’t even realize they’re not your natural teeth. If you’ve been letting missing teeth keep you from missing out on life, thanks to dental implants you can eat the foods you love and feel confident in your smile.
CARING FOR YOUR IMPLANTS
After the initial procedure is done, it’s recommended to brush the implant area with caution for the first couple of weeks as it may be sensitive. Once you’ve healed, dental implants only require the normally dentist-recommended oral health regimen. As long as you brush twice a day for two minutes each time and floss at least once per day, you implants could last you a very long time.
COMPLETE IMPLANT DENTISTRY
While some people use implants to replace a few teeth that have been lost over the years, implant dentistry can also be used to create a complete set of new teeth. Using new imaging technology has improved this option, making it easier to place the teeth to fit naturally into your bite. Once all the new posts are fused to your jaw and covered with naturally shaped crowns, you will have a full smile that will make you look years younger and give you back the freedom of having your own permanent teeth.
