So you’ve lost some teeth and now hesitate to smile because of the gaps. If only you could go back in time and recover that full-toothed smile you once had. Guess what? With dental implants, you can!
For most patients, a tooth implant is the ideal replacement for both the root and crown of a tooth. They feel so natural that implant recipients forget that they ever lost a tooth in the first place.
A tooth implant is anchored into the jawbone with a strong metal post. It doesn’t wiggle around like dentures, and unlike a dental bridge, it shields healthy jawbone and prevents bone recession. After the post is entirely enmeshed with the jawbone, the supporting device (called an abutment) and beautiful crown are solidly attached to the post. Some patients are able to undergo all three parts of the service at once.
If you’ve lost numerous teeth, you may be a good candidate for implant-anchored dentures.
Another way to go back in time is to whiten your teeth to the dazzling color they were when you were a teenager. There are several different types of tooth whitening systems, from same-day procedures to at-home treatments.
