The holidays are right around the corner, but is your smile ready to light up the room? If you find yourself hiding your smile because of a missing tooth – or teeth – maybe it’s time to add a dental implant to your wish list!
Missing Teeth Matter.
A missing tooth can be unsightly, but it can also be a downright health hazard. The extra space created from even one missing tooth can cause your other teeth to shift out of place. It can make daily tasks like eating and speaking more difficult.
While a dental implant will help to fill a gap in your smile, its real purpose is to stimulate the jaw. When the jaw is neglected, like in other dental prosthetics, it begins to deteriorate and could put you at risk for losing additional teeth.
And when your jaw bones are left unstimulated and unsupported by the tooth’s roots, you’re at risk for bone loss, which can actually change your facial features.
What is a Dental Implant?
The implant portion is a tiny titanium post that replaces the root of your tooth. The post has small ridges similar to a screw. Titanium is a special material, it’s biologically inert – meaning that it won’t react to the natural chemistry of your body.
The abutment acts as a middleman for the implant and the crown and helps to stabilize the final crown. Sometimes a temporary crown can be placed on the abutment until the final crown is ready to be attached.
Lastly, the crown is the part you think of as your tooth. It’s just like any regular crown you’d get in a dentist office and it will look, feel and function like a healthy tooth. The final crown is custom-made for your smile.
How Much Does it Cost?
