Do you suffer from unrelenting pain from one of your teeth? Maybe a dentist recommended a tooth extraction, or you’ve been missing a tooth or several teeth for quite a while. Either way, you’ll most likely consider different tooth replacement options, but which can serve your purposes best?
What Is a Dental Implant?
To replace a missing tooth, our dentists can place a titanium implant directly into the jawbone that (upon successfully healing) forms a solid base for a dental crown. The implant and dental crown combination create a highly functional, life-like tooth replacement. In some cases, dentists place multiple dental implants to secure implant-retained dentures.
When Might I Consider Dental Implants?
Patients who don’t want to deal with gaps in their smile or need to replace a tooth may benefit from discussing dental implants with their dentist. Patients with healthy jawbones who don’t suffer from gum disease may be eligible for a dental implant procedure. Dental implants can remedy some of the following conditions:
- Decayed, painful teeth requiring extraction
- Missing teeth leaving exposed gums or collapsing dental structures
- Dentures that don’t fit properly
