Dental Implants Can Replace Your Missing Teeth Beautifully
For patients who have lost one or more natural teeth, there are several successful options for replacement available here at Dupont Family Dentistry. Although every person’s individual preferences and needs are different, our doctors are likely to recommend dental implants as the optimal choice because of their exceptional longevity and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Please schedule your very own implant consultation and comprehensive dental exam at our DuPont location today and bring any questions for our dedicated staff members.
Dental Implant Placement
After we have determined with a consultation that implants are the right choice for your unique smile, the first step of your treatment will be the surgical placement of the implant(s) within the jawbone. Once this is completed, patient will need to undergo a healing period. During this period, nature will take over as your tissue and bone begin to gradually bond with the implants and create a solid, durable foundation that will support the placement of custom-made restorations.
Dental Implant Restoration
Once the patient’s mouth is fully healed, they will return to our Dupont practice so that our doctors can design high-quality, personalized restorations that will attach over the implants and recomplete your smile. Several options are available for this important process, and we will be happy to help you determine the one that fits your personal situation best. For example, an individual implant is best restored by an all-ceramic dental crowns that will not negatively affect surrounding healthy teeth. If several implants/teeth are in need of restoration, an implant-retained denture or bridge can provide more extensive and cost-effective coverage. No matter what we decide on, our goal is always to leave the patient with a much-improved smile that is naturally beautiful, functional, and confident once more.
Why Are Dental Implants An Excellent Option For Rebuilding Lost Teeth?
- Appearance – Once they are fully restored, dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from the original tooth in look, feel, and function.
- Health – Traditional tooth replacement services only rebuild the crown of the tooth and not the root beneath the gum line. Dental implants replicate the entire natural structure of the tooth so as to protect and strengthen your ongoing oral health.
- Longevity – With the help of professional maintenance and personal oral hygiene, dental implants can serve patients well for many years.
- Convenience – There are no inconvenient changes to your diet or oral hygiene routine required with dental implants. They can be cared for in the same fashion as the rest of your smile.
