Dentures give you a partial restoration after tooth loss, filling the hole in your smile that’s visible to other people. Complete tooth restoration, from the root to the crown, is possible if you instead choose dental implants. A dentist at Liberty Tree Prosthodontics in Danvers, MA, can offer you this revolutionary tooth replacement option.
What Is a Dental Implant?
Your teeth are dentin tissue-filled, hard enamel-covered implements that are embedded in your jaw with dental roots. Some teeth have one root while others have up to three. When one tooth comes loose, a space is available for a newly rooted “tooth” to be added. The most effective way to fill that space is with a dental implant, which is commonly made of biocompatible titanium material. An implant is strong, durable, and if you’re serious about good tooth and gum care, it can maintain its position for many decades.
How an Implant Restores Your Smile
An implant keeps your bone tissue healthy and allows for a crown restoration without affecting nearby teeth. An implant not only restores your smile, but also your confidence in the way you look and feel. You don't have to take an implant out at intervals, or when you’re sleeping—it is a permanent part of your smile. Imagine the confidence of knowing that you once again have all of your teeth and there’s no risk of them slipping out when you’re talking or eating in public!
The Treatment Process
You won't have to invest too much time at our Danvers dentist’s office to get implants. The first appointment is about an hour long, and entails your dentist inserting the implant into your jaw bone. The gum tissue is then stitched securely closed around the device to allow for healing. The next time you will see your dentist is a few months later for a dental impression, so that an attractive porcelain crown can be created and installed.
