Many people suffer tooth loss due to reasons such as decay, periodontal disease, or injury. Luckily, dentistry has become a lot more advanced over the last few years and the use of dental implants provide great improvements to our patients’ smiles. Patients at Grace Dental, who had lost natural teeth, love dental implants. They say it looks natural, is comfortable, and easier to maintain as well.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is used to replace the tooth lost to decay or any other injury. The implants have three components: first comes the titanium implant, then an abutment, and at last a crown. The little titanium implant is what serves as a substitute for your tooth root, which then holds the crown in its exact position. The abutment acts as a base for the crown, which is connected to the titanium implant. At last comes the placement of the crown, which adds a realistic look.
Implant Procedure at Grace Dental
Our implants are made with state-of-the-art technology and can help you restore your beautiful smile. Before beginning the procedure, our dentist will discuss with you your treatment goals and health history. We will conduct a comprehensive dental examination and look for any underlying oral conditions and determine if dental implants are right for you.
After it’s decided that the best course of treatment for you is dental implants, the dentist begins by making a small cut into the jawbone where the tooth is missing and places the implant into it. Our dentist will then place a temporary restoration onto the surgery site which will remain there while the implant fuses with the jawbone. When the area is healed, our dentist will place the final restoration and present the perfect smile you wished for.
