Missing teeth will have a huge impact on your quality of life. You won’t be able to eat or speak properly, you won’t be as confident to smile in public, and your overall dental health will be affected as well. The best way to deal with missing teeth is to replace them with dental implants. These are artificial tooth roots that are made from titanium that we use to support a prosthetic tooth or a full arch of replacement teeth. By having complete teeth using dental implants, you’ll be free to eat what you want, speak clearly and smile confidently with others, and maintain excellent oral health.
There are many things that could lead you to a lost adult tooth. Decay, disease, injury, congenital defects, and just regular wear and tear can all cause a tooth to come out. Regardless of why the tooth comes out, it needs to be replaced quickly. When you first come in, our priority will be finding out the health of your mouth. Once we make sure that your mouth is free of infection, we can proceed with an implant procedure.
As soon as possible, we will schedule your surgery. Anesthetics will be used to numb the area in your mouth. In case you’re anxious, ask us about sedation in order to help you stay relaxed and calm during surgery. Your dental implant, or a set of implants in case you need to replace several missing teeth, will then be inserted into your jaw bone. Your dental implants will need some time to heal and integrate into the jaw bone. As soon as they are secure, we will attach a custom permanent crown that will serve as your replacement tooth.
Dental implants are a completely secure and permanent restoration for missing teeth. With proper care, the implant will last a lifetime! Contact us today to learn more about the dental implant procedure. We can help you find the best solution available for your missing tooth!
