Improve Your Smile With Dental Implants
Millions of Americans have missing teeth or decayed teeth that need to be replaced. Many dentists recommend dental implants as the ideal solution. Find out how dental implants by a Lawrenceville, NJ cosmetic dentist at Haimes Weisberg Family Dentistry can help improve your smile. It's a surgical procedure performed at the dentist’s office that has a relatively short treatment period for very long lasting results.
Understanding Dental Implants
A dental implant is a device that is inserted into healthy bone tissue to replace missing teeth and restore dental function. The implant becomes firmly rooted in the jaw just like the the teeth you were born with. Unlike dentures, which only sit atop the gumline, dental implants keep the bone tissue healthy and aren’t removable. They also give you more confidence when eating, talking and smiling.
Getting Dental Implants
A Lawrenceville cosmetic dentist who is also a dental surgeon will install the dental implant if it’s determined that you are a good candidate. At the first appointment, the dentist will carefully place the implant (under anesthesia) and provide instructions for successful healing. At the next appointment, which is commonly scheduled several months later, the healed implant is fitted with an abutment and crown. Regular follow-up appointments are important to maintain your oral health and check on the implant.
The Best Case Scenario
Dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution to a problem that affects close to half of adult Americans. An implant provides you with the best case scenario for replacing a missing tooth because it can last for decades and has a 98 percent success rate according to statistics published by the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. But its success and longevity that requires a commitment on your part to optimal dental care.
