Are you missing teeth? Are you reluctant to go out in public because you are embarrassed about the gaps in your smile? Are you finding that some of your teeth are getting worn down because you overuse them to compensate for the holes in your smile?
There are several restoration dentistry procedures available to you. One great procedure is implant dentistry.
What is implant dentistry?
Implant dentistry is the treatment in which dental implants, small titanium rods, are placed into your jawbone by a periodontist. The rods fuse with your jawbone (this takes about 3-6 months) and once healed, the dental implants become “new” tooth roots. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Campbell then restores the dental implants by placing a dental crown on top of the implants. Together, the implants and dental crown for create a “new” tooth!
What are Dental Implants used for?
- Dental implants along with a dental crown on each can replace missing teeth in your smile.
- Implants with a dental crown can be used to secure dentures, partial dentures or implant supported permanent dentures.
- Implants with a dental crown can be used to secure a dental bridge.
Implants create a remarkably sturdy option for missing teeth. You will most likely have your dental implants for the rest of your life. The dental crown on top of the dental implants look, feel and function just like natural teeth. And one of the best parts? You will never get a cavity in a dental crown on top of dental implants!
