What Are Dental Implants?

Missing teeth are no fun. Having gaps in your smile can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance, make it hard to eat and speak, and even put your oral health at risk. If this sounds like something you’re struggling with, allow us to introduce you to the most popular tooth replacement solution around: dental implants.

 

The Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implants are a surgical solution to missing teeth. The implant itself is a titanium post, that looks much like a screw, and is inserted into the patients jawbone where the root of the missing tooth once was. Following insertion, the area will need to heal over a period of time, during which the implant fuses with the jawbone. Once the area has healed, a custom-made restoration is attached to the implant. Depending on how many teeth have been replaced, the restoration may be a bridge or a crown. Crowns are typically used for single tooth replacements, whereas a bride will do the trick for a few teeth in a row. Implant-supported dentures are also a great option in some situations.

 

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants have become a pretty popular solution to missing teeth. Because of the nature of the procedure, implants are a stable, durable, and permanent tooth replacement option. Once installed, the new tooth acts just like a natural tooth–so much so, you’ll forget it’s not real. Dental implants allow wearers to eat and speak normally, and smile proudly.

Hands down the best dental office to receive your dental and cosmetic needs. The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. It’s also so nice knowing that they have 3 amazing doctors on staff who know their craft. No matter which provider you see, you just know you’re in great hands. My last visit was with Dr. Sheikh for Botox. She’s very thorough and has a keen eye for detail. I’m two weeks out from my Botox treatment and let me just say, my skin has never felt so smooth or looked as radiant as it does now. Always a pleasure visiting Dr. Sheikh!

Please look no further! This entire office has their act together. I’ve been seeing Dr Sheikh and she is so patient and gentle.She is also a perfectionist and listens to your concerns and delivers options. I’ve also seen Dr Nina and Dr Patel and certainly no complaints with either of them. I’ve had 3 crowns and numerous fillings and no problems with any of the work. Thanks for building my complete confidence!
