Having missing teeth is an inconvenience because they can make some very common tasks very difficult to do. It can be a challenge to eat or even speak properly when teeth are missing. Well, we don’t want you to have to live with that sort of trouble, which is why we offer dental implants as a restorative procedure.
With dental implants, you will be able to enjoy all of the conveniences of having teeth. The natural look and feel of dental implants make them a very desirable option for the tooth restoration. In addition, bone loss in the jaw can be considerably slowed down by the installation of dental implants.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
The process for dental implants involves several steps and procedures before the final product is done. A titanium implant post is installed in the jaw, and after the gum has healed, the tooth or cap is placed onto the post. The new tooth will look and feel like a natural tooth and should be treated as such in regards to oral hygiene. Daily brushing and flossing should include the implant tooth.
Are Dental Implants Right for You?
We perform a thorough examination and assessment before recommending dental implants. Dental implants are often an excellent option for patients with sufficient bone strength—so don’t delay! The longer a tooth has been missing from its proper place, the more at-risk you are for bone loss in the jaw.
Technological advancements now allow us to place dental implants in one day. The procedure gives patients fully functioning teeth in twenty-four hours. This treatment option is available to all patients needing multiple implants quickly, including many of those who have been told in the past that they don’t qualify due to severe bone loss in the upper or lower jaw.
We don’t want you to live with the inconvenience that can come with missing teeth, so give us a call. At Northwestern Family Dental Care, we can help you determine if dental implants are right for you!
