Everything You Want to Know About Dental Implants – Ardmore Dentist
- Posted on: Oct 27 2015
Perhaps you have made the decision to remedy your dental problems, but aren’t sure where to start. Our dentist, Dr. Lindsey Marshall, can help you determine if dental implants are the solution you’re looking for through this detailed explanation.
Here is what you need to know about dental implants:
- What are dental implants? — dental implants are a permanent option to replace missing, severely damaged, or decayed teeth
- What are dental implants made from? — dental implants consist of three parts: a titanium post that gets embedded in your jaw bone, an abutment that connects the post to the crown, and a dental crown, bridge, or dentures that look just like all of your real teeth
- Why would I need dental implants? — dental implants serve to replace teeth that can’t otherwise be helped. This might mean teeth that are already missing or teeth that are severely decayed and need to be removed. They can also be used to add support to dental bridges and dentures because the implant adds support and helps maintain the health and density of your jaw bone
- How do dental implant appointments work? — dental implants require a few appointments. During the first, our dentist will place the titanium posts in your jaw bone and fit you with temporary dental crowns. Once your jaw has completely fused to the post, a mould will be made of your mouth and your dental crowns will be created so they fit in seamlessly with your smile’s color, shape, and your bite
