Replace Your Missing Tooth with a Dental Implant
There are many reasons that you many find yourself in need of a tooth replacement. Dental patients of all experiences and backgrounds have visited our office in need of a tooth extraction or repair. Advanced stage gum disease or tooth decay can require a tooth to be extracted, as can trauma to the mouth. When you need your tooth removed it is important to realize that there are many options available for replacing your damaged tooth. Dentures and bridges are available options, but these devices can feel temporary or even uncomfortable for some patients. Whenever possible the professionals at Dental Solutions highly recommend the use of a dental implant for replacing your missing tooth. Dental implants are dramatic improvements from other devices in that they function as strongly and permanently as your natural teeth. Dental implants are rooted with a titanium post in your jaw. This functions as strongly as your natural, healthy tooth root and prevents your implant from wiggling or shifting over time. Once the titanium post is fitted in place it will be capped off with a porcelain crown that is as equally strong as your tooth’s enamel. Additionally porcelain crowns can be manufactured to match your existing teeth’s shape, size and color. Plus, they resist staining, meaning that your crown will look natural and blend in with your smile for years to come. Don’t let a missing tooth hold you back from a beautiful smile.
