If you have a missing tooth that needs to be replaced, you may be interested in learning about dental implants. Patients are able to get dental implants at our dental practice, Shoreline Modern Dental. If you have a gap left by a missing tooth, you will want to take some action in this regard. This is because having a gap in your smile can cause other problems when permanent teeth try to move over to fill in the gap. This can cause the need for serious orthodontic care down the road. Having missing teeth can also cause your jaw to atrophy which will affect the youthful look of your face. Getting dental implants Westbrook will solve both of these problems.
Patients thoroughly enjoy getting dental implants Westbrook because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. When you come to our dental office wanting to get dental implants, our dentist, Dr. Bradley Daar, will first need to analyze your particular smile situation to see if you are a good candidate for the procedure. If it is determined that your jawbone is thick enough and healthy enough to withstand the oral surgery, our dentist will then be able to provide you with a titanium dental implant root for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There will then be a healing period of several months during which time the jawbone will fully heal and the dental implant root will fully fuse to the jawbone.
After the healing period is completed, our dentist will be able to attach a beautiful porcelain crown to the top portion of each dental implant root. At this point, your dental implant is complete, and you will be able to smile with total confidence once again. You will also be able to eat anything you want in full comfort and confidence without worrying that the dental implant will slip or embarrass you in any way. And, if well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and periodic dental cleanings, your dental implants will most likely last for a lifetime.
