Dental Implants are Ideal for Missing Teeth Replacement
It can feel extremely embarrassing to have one or more missing teeth in your mouth. If you find yourself shying away from expressing true happiness, then perhaps it’s time to look into the world of cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry offers an array of solutions for replacing missing teeth. One of the greatest and most recommended solutions among many dentists is the use of dental implants. Dr. Nquyen at Lansdowne Dental Care offers safe and long-lasting solutions that allow patients to chew, talk, and smile with renewed confidence!
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the procedure that requires a surgical insertion of a titanium post into the patient’s jaw to support a dental restoration. Any dental restoration can be added to this titanium post, such as a dental crown (most popular), a dental bridge, and even dentures! The titanium post acts and mimics the function of a natural tooth root. It provides a secure and stable foundation for the replacement tooth to be added to. Patients who have opted for dental implants over any other dental cosmetic procedures often notice that the implants mimic both the look and function of a natural tooth!
Dental implants are a great option for patients who have one or more missing teeth. Dentures are popularly used to attach to the titanium post as well to create another dynamic tooth replacement option.
At Lansdowne Dental Care, we call upon the best technology to help map out your dental implant journey. Dr. Nguyen will ensure you are well-informed in each step prior to the treatment process and is happy to answer any questions you may have during any step. Before treatment, our team will first ensure you, as the patient, are a good candidate for the procedure. Any patient who is interested in getting dental implants must be first deemed eligible for the procedure. The patient must generally have a healthy mouth, gums, and teeth. There needs to be a strong enough foundation in the jaw bone to be able to support the insertion of the titanium post.
Once the dentist has deemed you eligible, you can move forward with treatment!
