How Dental Implants Can Give You Back Your Smile
Are you missing one, several or even all of your teeth? Tired of gluing in your smile each morning just to wonder if it will pop out during the day? At Susan J. Curley, DDS we understand how frustrating it can be to have a partial smile and are proud to offer dental implants in Wall. Implant dentistry is a newer advancement in dentistry that allows dentists to attach artificial teeth, including the crowns!
About Our Wall Dental Implants
Dental implants are typically made from three parts which are the implant, abutment and prosthetic. The implant itself is actually a tiny post (often made from titanium) which is surgically attached to the patient’s jawbone. Once the area heals, the titanium post will actually bond with the bone, becoming part of you. After fully healing, the abutment is then attached to the implant. The prosthetic can be a dental crown, bridge, partial or even denture depending upon various factors your dentist will discuss with you.
- Dental implants become part of you.
As mentioned above, dental implants literally become a part of the patient. Once healed, the implant acts as an artificial root, ensuring that your smile stays in place. Placing dental implants can event prevent bone demineralization and tooth shifting often caused by missing teeth.
- Dental implants are designed to look, feel and function just like natural teeth.
Dental implants are designed using materials that are supposed to make them look as real as possible. Prior to placement, your cosmetic dentist will help you select the perfect shape, size and even color of your new smile, ensuring you have the smile of your dreams.
- Dental implants require no dietary restrictions.
Unlike other restorative treatment options, dental implants require no restrictions to the diet at all, you can enjoy all of your favorite foods, even corn on the cob again!
