When you are missing teeth, implants serve as a great support for crowns, bridges, and other cosmetic enhancements. These titanium posts are placed beneath your gumline and help ensure your jawbone retains its strength over time. When a tooth is missing, your jaw doesn’t receive the necessary stimulation to keep it healthy and maintain its density. Implant posts provide this stimulation, for the health of your jawbone.
What To Expect From The Treatment
When you need a dental implant, we carefully insert titanium posts into your jawbone. You will be sedated during your surgery, so you won’t feel a thing and will remain completely relaxed and comfortable for the entire procedure. The procedure only takes about an hour, and your jaw should be fully healed in two to four months. Once the implant fuses to your jawbone, we will fit it with a crown, bridge, or the appropriate prosthetic for your needs.
When you receive an implant, you can feel secure knowing that you now have a permanent solution for your formerly missing tooth. Moreover, because the post goes directly into your jawbone, the implant will help your jaw continue to function at its full strength. This is not the case with crown-supported bridges and dentures, so an implant is often the best option for long-term health.
