A dental implant is a fantastic way to replace missing teeth without any issues to the way you eat, brush and floss on a daily basis. Bright Smile Dental provides dental services like these to patients in the Worthington area, so that they can get a new-found sense of confidence. For over 20 years dentists have trusted the use of dental implants to fill in missing teeth. It is so safe and comfortable, they’ll feel like your natural teeth.
Cosmetic teeth implants are put in place with a small titanium alloy screw that attaches to your jaw. During the procedure, our patients are sedated so that it can be adhered quickly, safely and painlessly. After the area heals, a custom-made dental crown is secured into place and left visible as the new tooth. Then it’s ready to use, good as new!
This technology solves a big issue for many people because it can interfere with what they eat, how they talk and clean their teeth. Dental implants are permanent, so you don’t have to worry about them moving out of place. The fact that they don’t shift around is one of the major differences between this and other alternatives, such as dentures or bridges. There is no need to attach anything to surrounding teeth either, so they won’t be affected.
This is a great option for someone with healthy gums and sufficient bone to support the dental implant. The most common cause of bone loss is missing a tooth, which facilitates bacteria entering and eating away at the jaw bone underneath. Another reason a missing tooth can make bone loss worse is that jaw bone is conserved through the act of chewing. We can determine with a consultation if you would be a good candidate for this procedure.
As long as you keep up your healthy oral hygiene habits then this is a solution that can last a lifetime. It’s an investment that makes a real difference in our patient’s lives and we’re sure you’ll enjoy the benefits. You’ll be glad you made the decision to improve your oral health.
