What You Need to Know About Dental Implants at Natick Dental Health
Is an absent tooth (or teeth) causing you to feel embarrassed when you show your smile? Patients report having this experience and can’t speak or eat comfortably as a result. If you would love to have a brilliant, confident smile, then look no further!
Here at Natick Dental Health, we offer a practical and permanent solution – dental implants! This innovative technology is designed to restore your natural-looking smile and give you back the confidence you need.
Let’s take a closer look at why they are such an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium screw-like posts that are surgically placed into your jawbone. These small screws act as artificial roots for the replacement teeth that sit upon them.
Over time, they fuse with your jawbone, which provides stability and support for dental crowns, bridges, and even dentures.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Once the implant has been placed, it takes time – usually around four to six months – for the titanium screw to fuse with your jawbone and create a solid bond.
Once that process is complete, an abutment is attached to the top of the screw, and a custom-made crown is attached to it. This crown will be made specifically for you, so it should fit seamlessly with your existing teeth and look completely natural!
Dental implant placement usually requires multiple office visits. At each stage of your treatment, we will thoroughly explain the procedure and provide care instructions to help ensure that your teeth and gums stay healthy. With proper care and maintenance, they should last a lifetime!
The Benefits of Dental Implants
One of the primary advantages of dental implants is their stability and durability. Unlike traditional dentures that tend to slip around and create irritating friction on the gums, they remain securely in place and allow for improved chewing efficiency compared to other restorative options.
Other benefits include:
- A natural look– Because they are firmly anchored, dental implants look just like natural teeth. They look and function so similarly to natural teeth that you may forget you ever lost one!
- Bone preservation– When people lose teeth, they often experience bone loss in the jaw because without the tooth’s root stimulating it, there is nothing to keep the bone healthy. Dental implants replace this root structure and help preserve your jawbone health.
- Improved confidence– With their natural look and feel, they can help restore your confidence so you can enjoy life without worrying about how your teeth look or feel when you speak or eat.
Additionally, you’ll experience fewer restrictions on what foods you can eat. Plus, they’re more secure than bridges since they don’t rely on adjacent teeth for support.
In other words, dental implants offer superior security compared to other options!
