To maintain proper oral health, it is important to replace any missing teeth should you have any. Not only do you lose chewing capacity without a tooth, but not replacing your tooth with a dental implant can result in the shifting of other teeth, the loss of even more teeth, and many other issues.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for your missing tooth that looks natural, and feels and functions as your original tooth did prior to the loss or breakage. Additionally, dental implants give extra support for facial structures, and even prevent bone deterioration. Our Cleveland implant dentists will provide not only a functional solution but an aesthetic one, leaving you confident in your smile.
What Does a Dental Implant Procedure Entail?
Our implant dentists alter the process of the dental implant procedure for each of our clients’ needs, meaning your dental implant procedure plan will be unique to your smile. Dental implants are able to be placed in lower and upper jaws, making it one of the most versatile procedures in the industry. In most situations, the typical implant consists of a small titanium screw, a crown, and possibly a complete denture.
The small screw, or post, of the dental implant serves as a replacement for the root of the missing tooth. Made of titanium, the post is placed into the jawbone, being fused to the bone where the teeth are missing. The fusion of the post directly into the bone provides a durable foundation for any artificial tooth. The stability of the post and its strong foundation allow for dental implants to be used as a long-term solution for replacing any single tooth or multiple teeth.
With proper care, dental implants can last up to forty years. Proper care includes regular brushing, flossing, visiting us for routine cleanings, and following any recommendations our dentists provide at the check-ups.
