Replacing Teeth in Crown Point & Whiting with Dental Implants
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you can have a strong, beautiful smile again without the need for a traditional bridge, partial, or full denture. With dental implants, you can enjoy more natural results by pairing a custom-made restorative piece with one or more titanium implant posts, which act like prosthetic roots. The combination of a crown, bridge, partial, or full denture with a prosthetic root is similar to nature’s own design, making it possible for patients to have a smile that looks and functions just like the one they used to have.
Why Are Tooth Roots Important?
Replacing missing teeth as soon as you possibly can is important. Not only is it more difficult to enjoy a nutritious diet when you have one or more gaps in your smile, but communicating clearly and smiling with confidence are also more difficult. What’s more, tooth loss can also cause bone loss.
Your tooth roots have two important jobs, one of which is to anchor teeth to the jaw. The other is to stimulate new bone growth in the jaw over time. However, when you lose a tooth and its root, a part of your jaw is no longer receiving new tissue. Over time, this part of your jaw will weaken as you lose bone. With enough time, you might even lose other teeth that are otherwise healthy as the weakness in your jaw spreads. Dental implants can help you support your jaw by taking on the job of a natural root.
Exceptional Results for Crown Point, Whiting, and Beyond
A full dental implant procedure is completed in two phases. In the first, one or more implant posts are surgically placed in the jaw. Then, after they’ve had time to bond with your jawbone, your posts will be exposed and your custom-made crown, bridge, partial, or full denture will be attached. The process can take months to complete, but the results are unlike anything you can get with traditional restorative care.
