Should I Consider Dental Implants?
- Posted on: Nov 24 2015
If you are tired of looking in the mirror and not liking the teeth looking back at you, it may be time to consider if dental implants are the solution. Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth, teeth that are badly discolored, or teeth that have become badly infected and need to be removed.
Dental implants consist of three parts, the first of which is a titanium screw that is actually placed in your jawbone. This screw is then left to fuse with your bone so it functions just like your natural teeth. After the screw has fully fused with your bone, we attach an abutment that serves to connect the screw with the dental crown.
Your dental crown will fit in perfectly with the shape of your mouth and will match your natural tooth color. After creating a mold, your dental crown will be milled and then our dentist will ensure that it fits in perfectly with your smile and bite.
Dental implants are right for you if you have any of the following:
- Missing teeth
- Teeth that are too small and don't fit in with your bite or smile
- Badly infected teeth that need to be removed
- Badly stained teeth that don't respond to teeth whitening treatments
