Implants help protect tooth-supporting bone and keep your teeth in alignment while giving you a natural, confident smile.
A Clean, Full Smile
If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental implants might be the right choice for you. Missing teeth can detract from your appearance, make it difficult to eat, and might make you feel self-conscious to smile and laugh around others. In addition, a lack of a tooth can cause bone to deteriorate and other teeth to shift which will eventually lead to further dental problems.
How Implants Work
An implant usually has a small, screw-shaped titanium post that replaces the root of the missing tooth. It is inserted into the jawbone during a minor surgical procedure and is left to heal while the bone fuses to the implant. After a set period of time, the dentist will attach a tooth-like crown to the post that is virtually indistinguishable from your other teeth. After the procedure, your implant will look, feel, and function like natural teeth, allowing you to eat, talk, and smile with ease.
Implants: The Best Solution
No other tooth replacement option creates a better, longer-lasting solution than dental implants. When properly cared for, the implant itself can last a lifetime and the crown can last many years. Town Creek Family Dentistry has several implant options, including single tooth and multi-tooth replacement. The dentist can help you decide which replacement option is best for your situation.
