The Solution for Missing Teeth
Missing teeth can have a significant impact on your overall health and wellbeing. In addition to affecting your confidence and self-esteem, missing teeth can also have a negative effect on your ability to eat and speak properly. Fortunately, dental implants provide a long-term solution that can help restore your oral health and improve your quality of life. By surgically implanting artificial tooth roots into your jaw, dental implants provide a sturdy foundation for a replacement tooth or bridge.
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants work by mimicking the structure of natural teeth. Like natural teeth, implants have a root and a crown. The implant acts as the root and is surgically placed in the jawbone. Over time, the implant fuses with the jawbone, creating a stable base for the replacement tooth or bridge.
Once the implant has fused with the jawbone, an abutment is attached to the implant. The abutment is a small connector that protrudes from the gumline and holds the replacement tooth or bridge in place. The replacement tooth or bridge is custom-made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, giving you a seamless and natural-looking smile.
