Can you really replace your teeth with a man made solution that works and behaves just as well as natural teeth? The answer is emphatical, “Yes!”
What Exactly Are Dental Implants?
Unlike dentures that you remove each and every night, or bridges that can fail, crack and need replacement, dental implants are a long term tooth replacement solution. When Belmont dental implants patients properly care for them, their dental implants are expected to last a indefinitely! When properly cared for the dental implants placed in our Belmont office can last indefinitely!
Dental implants work by mimicking your tooth root. A titanium screw is placed into your mouth, which secures a ceramic tooth replica. Then, the natural-looking crown is placed on top of it in your mouth by creating a strong bond within your mouth. As a result, of well-placed implants you have a natural looking teeth, which allows you to bite down and chew with comfort and ease.
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?
Whether you are missing one tooth, need an extraction soon or even considering a total smile makeover, dental implants can be a solution for you. Typically recommended only for non-smokers (smoking can affect the implant’s ability to form a bond and integrate with your jawbone, thus causing the implant to fail), dental implants can be placed in most healthy Belmont patients’ mouths. The key to long term implant success is good oral hygiene and compliance with recommended re-care frequency.
