Don’t Go Through Life with Missing Teeth
Even if you’re just missing one tooth, it can weaken your surrounding teeth and lead to other problems in your day-to-day life. From pain during eating to uncomfortable feelings while smiling and being social, the problems associated with missing teeth are significant and widely-varied. Ultimately, any restoration is far better than living with missing teeth.
Which Restorative Treatment is Right for You?
At Smile! Dental Center, we provide a variety of restorative treatments. Considering the vastly differing needs of our patients, some restorative treatments are more appropriate for some patients than others. Restorative services that we offer here include dentures, bridges, and partials, but our specialty is dental implants.
Dental Implants Set the Gold Standard for Replacing Missing Teeth
No other restorative treatment provides the advantages of dental implants. Only dental implants can prevent your jawbone from shrinking over time. Plus, they offer an unparalleled level of chewing and speaking strength and they’re designed to last a lifetime if properly cared for. Ultimately, there are a lot of reasons why dental implants are known as the gold standard when it comes to replacing missing teeth.
The 3 Parts of a Dental Implant
A dental implant consists of a titanium fixture, an abutment, and a restoration that goes on the top and serves as your new tooth. The durability of the dental implant comes from the fact that the fixture is surgically placed into your jawbone – through a process called osseointegration, it bonds together with your bone.
After the fixture is securely in place, the stable connecting piece called an abutment is attached. Once the porcelain crown or chosen restoration is added to the abutment, your dental implant is complete. Note that some patients may require supplemental procedures before they qualify.
