Fill in the gaps with dental implants
Are you missing teeth? Some of the most common reasons for missing teeth are sports injuries and accidents, but one thing is for sure, it’s not a rare occurrence. Many people look for a solution to regain their confidence, stripped away from gaps in their teeth. Dental implants are a permanent solution to replace absent roots and support artificially replaced teeth. They also offer longevity, reliability and reassurance. As an alternative to bridges or dentures, dental implants would be the next recommendation.
At Able Family Dental, we work together with our patients to provide outstanding care of your oral health and use dental implant procedures as a treatment option for your oral care. They feel good and look beautiful – just like real teeth.
What are dental implants?
Made of titanium, dental implants are carefully placed in the jawbone where they act as an artificial tooth root. Eventually, the bone will grow around the implant giving it strength like a natural root. To complete the implant, a dental crown – designed to blend in with your natural teeth – is placed on top of the implant, and secured in place. Unlike dentures, dental implants do not shift or move.
If you are in relatively good health, have healthy gums and enough bone in your jaw to anchor and hold a dental implant, a dental implant procedure may be right for you. There is also the possibility of receiving a bone graft to add bone to your jawbone to facilitate the method. Speak to your dentist to learn about your options and see if you are a fit candidate to receive dental implants.
