While most dentists prefer to save teeth and preserve them, sometimes tooth decay is too advanced or a tooth is chipped too close to the gum line. This compromises the tooth’s structural integrity, eliminating the possibility of being patched up with just a crown. The tooth must instead be replaced by a dental implant. Fortunately, Drs. Tom Morgan and Michael Babcock of Babcock & Morgan Family Dental in New Prague MN can help fully restore your teeth in looks and function.
More About Dental Implants
The prospect of having false teeth is uncomfortable for many, but rest assured with today’s modern technology, dental implants are more secure, stable, and resilient than natural teeth. There’s no need to worry about removing implants to clean them. Dental implant maintenance works just like natural teeth, with you brushing and flossing. Implants are permanently placed in the mouth and allow you to chew, speak, and smile with no worries. If maintained properly, dental implants last a long time, possibly decades, and may never need replacement. It's one of the many reasons they are so popular at your New Prague, MN Dentist office.
Dental implants are so secure because they are inserted into the jaw bone, fusing their biocompatible titanium material with the tissue and bone over a healing period. Your New Prague, MN dentist then sends your dental impressions to a lab to make a custom porcelain crown or cap for placement onto the metallic insert. The implant also helps preserve the jawbone rather than allowing further decay or shrinkage due to not replacing removed teeth, fully restoring your teeth and smile.
