Why A Dental Implant May Be Needed

Posted .

If you have suffered a lost tooth and are concerned about the prospect of bone loss that often follows after, then you may benefit from a dental implant. Our team is pleased to speak with you about the nature of dental implants and how they can improve your dental health.

Dental implants are an effective option for most patients who need tooth replacement. If you lose a tooth, a dental implant can prevent bone loss and fill any gaps in your smile because the implant post is surgically placed into the jawbone to replace the root of your tooth. The bone then fuses to the dental implant to create a strong bond. Following a healing period, we can place a dental crown on top of the implant to completely restore your smile.

Dental crowns are not the only dental restoration that can be paired with a dental implant. If you have lost several teeth, a dental bridge or even dentures can be secured to smile thanks to the support of the dental implant. Dental implants are highly durable, strong, and able to give your smile the support it needs.
