The Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically attached to the jaw. Once the implants are in place, we attach artificial replacement teeth to these posts.
Since dental implants are fused into your jaw, the new teeth are quite stable. Whether you are chewing, talking or whatever else, the teeth will not slip or move as you go through day-to-day activities.
Many people say their implants feel more natural than dentures or traditional bridges. For some people, bridges and dentures are not even an option due to the shape or condition of their mouth. If this is the case for you, dental implants may be the best possible choice.
Are You A Candidate For Dental Implants?
In order to receive implants, your gums and bone must be in adequate condition, as these are responsible for supporting the implant. Thorough oral hygiene is also needed in order to keep your health and maintain a clean smile. If you feel as though implants may be a good option for you, the New Smile team can help.
Prevent Premature Aging With Dental Implants
When a tooth is lost, the jawbone begins to shrink and becomes brittle from lack of exercise. Not only does losing teeth affect your smile, but it also changes the shape of your face, causing you to look prematurely aged.
Dental implants prevent premature aging and bone loss caused by missing teeth. Reach out to New Smile Dentures And Implants today and see if you are a candidate for the procedure!
