Dental implants are a great way to get a healthy, beautiful smile back. Missing teeth hamper a smile and also take away a person's self-esteem. Having the missing teeth replaced gives them their smile back, gives them more confidence to smile, and is also better for their health because they can chew better and more comfortably with a full set of teeth.
Dental implants can replace one single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, and no other option to replace missing teeth has proven as effective and durable as implants. Basically, a small titanium cylinder is placed in the space of the missing tooth. Once the implant is placed, we let it heal, then take impressions and make a crown. The crown is placed over the implant to make it look like a natural tooth. Implants look and feel very natural, which is why they are so popular in replacing missing teeth.
For multiple missing teeth, we can do multiple implants and place crowns over them. We can also give the patient dentures that attach to the implants. The implants make the dentures tighter, keep them in place, and make them more secure in the mouth.
Titanium is a material that the mouth and tissues around the teeth take to well. Because of this, the material is accepted by the bone and tissues as a natural part of the mouth. The patient does not have to worry about the implants having any adverse reactions or having to experience negative side effects because of them.
At Plaza Dental, we have lots of extra training to make sure that the dental implant procedure is as pain free as possible. Generally, our patients experience no pain at all because they are thoroughly numbed. Our patients also tell us that they did not experience any pain after the procedure, either.
Because of the advances in technology and our extensive training, patients can experience a pain-free procedure that gives them the results they are looking for. Having a beautiful and healthy smile is now possible because of dental implants.
