Tooth loss during childhood is not a health concern, it’s completely natural! On the other hand, adult tooth loss is a whole other story and can be quite a serious concern. Tooth loss during adulthood means dental treatment will be essential to bring your smile back to the way it was and to protect teeth that remain as well as your oral health! Out of the numerous gap filling dental methods available, one of the most reliable is what is called a dental implant. If your gums, as well as the teeth you have remaining, are in good shape, consult with one of our professionals to see if implants are the right treatment for your problem!
Dental Implant Advantages
Dental Implants are artificial teeth that are implanted straight into the jaw/jawbone. If your oral hygiene and gum health are up to the mark, this treatment is definitely worth considering.
Easy to Maintain: Implants are the closest replacement of missing natural teeth; they’re permanent. They’re not akin to dentures. They do not need to be taken off prior to cleaning. Simple brushing and flossing of implants as you do with naturally occurring teeth is all you need.
Superior Aesthetic and Function: A dental implant once placed and set cannot be distinguished from other teeth that occur naturally. This is not just by way of aesthetic but also by way of function!
It is important to be clear on the treatment before opting to get Dental Implants. Our professionals ensure smooth sailing and procedures that promise minimal pain.
Implanting: Post the preliminary consultation, implants in the form of screws are placed and screwed into the jawbone/gums. This is a sense is a replacement for your tooth root.
Osseo-integration: It takes about 4 to 6 months for your mouth area to completely heal and revert to normal where the implant has been placed. The implant during this time eventually connects with/fuses to the bone under the gums, securing its self as a result.
Installing the Crow: Last, once the implant has fused adequately, our professionals will proceed to cap the same with a crown that resembles your missing tooth.
