Dental implants are the most advanced option to replace them. If you are considering dental implants for restoring your lost teeth, our dentist at Dental Expressions can discuss your treatment plan. If you choose dental implants they will replace the root of your tooth and will be covered by a dental crown or dental bridge. Your dental implants will be surgically placed into your upper or lower jaw when they can function as an abutment, or anchor tooth for replacement crowns and they will be made from biocompatible materials that will not be rejected by your body's immune system.

Dental Implants Act As Teeth

Choosing dental implants will provide a strong foundation for permanent teeth that will be made to match your smile and fuse with your jawbone. Your dental implants will provide the best long-term dental restoration to enhance your smile.

Dental implants are a permanent option that will fuse with your bone, and be able to function like your own teeth. This means that you will be able to confidently eat your favorite foods, as you will be able to eat with ease and without pain. They can be extremely durable and long-lasting. If you provide your dental implants with good care, your implants will last the rest of your lifetime.

Also, by choosing dental implants, you are opting for the most convenient option for replacing your teeth. Dental implants do not need to be kept in place with adhesive or need to be removed to be cleaned, like dentures. Compared to dentures that can slip or become loose and cause you difficulty when speaking, dental implants ensure improved speech. Dental implants will quickly improve your appearance by improving your smile as well as your confidence.

A Surgeon Will Perform Your Treatment

There will be three phases to go through and multiple appointments when receiving dental implants. First, our dentist will surgically place the implant into your jawbone. Next, you will follow a given cleaning routine during the recovery process. You may eat a diet of soft food, cold food, and soup. This next step in the process is called osseointegration, meaning to combine with the bone. You may need several months for the implant to fully integrate with your jawbone before a dental implant can be attached, but some patients may have the implant and replacement teeth situated all in one visit. What makes an implant so strong is how the bone will grow around it and hold the implant in place. The placement of artificial teeth is the final phase of getting your dental implants. If you have a single tooth implant then the dentist will use a crown. If more teeth are being replaced your dentist will use a bridge.
