Working around a missing tooth is a hassle and can end up causing problems for your oral structure. Dr. Della Bella provides dental implants to restore your teeth to full strength and help you live with more comfort and confidence.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an excellent option for replacing missing teeth or damaged teeth that need to be extracted. An implant is a metal post that is attached to your jawbone through a surgical procedure, imitating the natural tooth root. This process holds an artificial tooth in place and protects other teeth from shifting.
The dental implant is typically covered with a crown, which is created to maintain the same appearance, size, and shape of your natural tooth. Implants may also be covered by dentures or dental bridges that can click onto the artificial tooth roots.
What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?
Consider the many advantages dental implants offer:
Optimal Oral Health | Dental implants allow your original and artificial teeth to function as they naturally would. Implants protect the jawbone and keep your teeth from migrating. They also prevent bone loss.
Better Appearance | Implants fill in the gaps caused from missing teeth, creating a better appearance. Implants also keep your face from appearing sagged or sunken.
Long-Lasting | If you uphold excellent dental hygiene habits, your dental implants should last several years—even decades. You can continue brushing, flossing, and visiting us for routine dental cleanings to keep your dental implants and tooth restorations in great shape.
Easier Eating and Speaking | Implants can help keep you from slurring or speaking with a lisp. They also make eating much easier, and you should be able to enjoy your favorite foods.
