Dental Implants Replace Missing Teeth – You can have “Teeth in a Day”!
When a severe dental problem calls for the removal of an entire tooth, it doesn’t mean you’ll be toothless. Perhaps you’re missing teeth due to an accident or past dental problems.
Dental implants allow you to maintain a full set of teeth for healthy eating, to maintain the shape of your face, to maintain tooth spacing and protect remaining teeth, to improve speech, to maintain a normal bite and jaw movement and to present a beautiful smile to the world. Dental implants can also be used to anchor dentures.
A dental implant is a small, lightweight bio-compatible metal cylinder that is placed into your jaw bone. Your bone grows around it, creating a solid foundation for a tooth or teeth that replace missing teeth. While placing a metal cylinder into one’s jawbone sounds like it would be considered major surgery, dental implant surgery is simple and relatively painless.
In many cases, we can place an implant and you can have a replacement tooth on the same day.
