Are Dental Implants a Good Choice?
Has one of your teeth fallen out? You probably do not want to walk around with a missing tooth, especially if it is one of the ones that are located in the front of your mouth. Although a natural tooth may have fallen out, it does not mean that there is nothing we can do about it. Instead of trying to just deal with the fact that it is no longer there, you can consider having it replaced with a dental implant. Before you can decide to have the dental procedure done, you will need to have your gums and teeth evaluated at our clinic.
A dental implant is basically a ceramic crown that is made to look like a real tooth. The crown is attached to a metal rod that the dentist will need to insert beneath your gums to keep the new artificial tooth in place. This can even be done under sleep or sedation dentistry.
The procedure may be performed over several sessions, but it all depends on how many teeth need to be replaced. Before having anything done, our dentists will need to take molds of your other teeth to successfully match this artificial tooth to the rest of them based on their shape and color. After all, not everyone’s teeth look the same.
If you decide to get a dental implant, you will not have to deal with a missing tooth anymore. It will take the place of your real tooth, and it will look natural too. It is strong and reliable, so you can still eat the way that you normally would. If you want to have healthy teeth that look great, consider getting a dental implant to replace your missing tooth.
