What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a popular way to replace missing teeth with durable and natural-looking prosthetics. Every dental implant we provide supports a crown that is fully-customized to look and feel like your natural teeth. Our goal is to restore your smile to completion so you can get back to your life. Dental implants are an ideal way to boost your confidence and get a smile that you are ready to share with all those around you.
Do I Need Dental Implants?
If you are missing one or more teeth, we highly recommend replacing them as soon as possible. In many cases, dental implants prove to be the best option, as they are durable and do not come with restrictions on what you can eat. This tooth replacement option is ideal for patients who are missing only a single tooth or a couple of teeth, since each implant must be placed individually. For patients missing several teeth in a row (or an entire row of teeth), we may recommend trying out dental bridges or dentures.
During your initial appointment at Turquoise Dental, we can fully examine your situation and discuss your replacement options. We work closely with you to find the best option for getting your smile to be full and bright once more.
How Do I Get Dental Implants?
We aim to streamline the dental implants process as much as possible, and can usually complete the process in two to three visits. First we need to evaluate your situation and see if you have enough jawbone mass to support an implant. We can then take impressions of your teeth to ensure that your custom dental implants look and feel just like your natural teeth.
First we place the implant itself into the gumline. As your gums heal, this implant post will naturally fuse to your jawbone to provide a strong support for your tooth replacement. Lastly, we place your new crown (the tooth part) on the implant and ensure that it looks and feels like a natural part of your smile.
What If I Wait for Treatment?
Did you know that missing teeth for an extended period of time can actually have lasting effects? The longer patients go without restoring lost teeth, the more they may see changes in their jaw and appearance. This can range from your jaw changing shape to losing bone mass, which could make future replacements more challenging. Missing teeth can also put more strain on your remaining teeth, causing them to shift or wear down over time. In short, the sooner you replace a missing tooth, the better.
