Dental Implants-the modern way to replace missing teeth
Are you dealing with tooth loss? As an adult, you don’t ever expect to lose a permanent tooth but this problem happens to millions of Americans. Babcock & Morgan Family Dental can help you choose the right replacement option to fit your needs. Dental implants offer a realistic and long-term option for healthy adults who are looking to get the next best thing to a real tooth.
A dental implant is a dental prosthetic that replaces tooth roots. While an implant is made up of three different parts, the main part is a metal screw that is surgically inserted into the jawbone where they will function just like real tooth roots by stimulating and preserving the jawbone. Once the implant is placed it will take several months for the jawbone and implant to fuse together.
This integration between the implant and jawbone means that your false tooth is now a permanent part of your smile. With the proper care implants are durable enough to last several decades, which means that many of our patients end up having their implant for the rest of their lives.
Of course, the dental team at Babcock & Morgan Family Dental will need to examine your smile to make sure that you are an ideal candidate for treatment. Most healthy adults who are missing one or more teeth can be perfect candidates for dental implants; however, the first step is for our dentists to examine your smile and take x-rays to check the health of the jawbone. Taking x-rays will help us decide whether the jawbone is strong enough to support an implant.
There is truly no restoration that functions like real teeth in the way dental implants do. Babcock & Morgan Family Dental wants to make sure that you restore your smile after tooth loss to prevent further complications to your oral health. We have helped countless patients achieve full smiles again after tooth loss and we can help you, too.
