Losing a tooth can have detrimental effects on your self esteem and your oral health. Tooth roots keep your jawbone strong and healthy. When a tooth is lost, the jaw underneath starts to deteriorate. This can have a negative effect on the appearance of your face, and your overall happiness. At DiSano Dentistry, we use dental implants to restore that level of health as well as the functionality of a full and complete smile.
Dental implants are a fantastic option for patients who have lost teeth. The implant, combined with a beautiful porcelain crown, looks and feels just like your natural teeth. You will once again be able to enjoy perfect occlusion and a strong healthy jawbone. Unlike other restorative dentistry treatments that restore lost teeth, dental implants work like natural tooth roots. You will be able to enjoy the full benefits of a healthy, happy, smile.
Our dental implants are made from a state-of-the-art titanium alloy that fuses with your natural bone. Dental implants are small rods that serve as synthetic tooth roots. When a beautiful, porcelain crown is attached, dental crowns replace every lost part of the tooth instead of just the part above the surface.
The procedure is simple:
- First your dentist will clear a space for the implant in the gum area where the tooth was lost.
- Once the implant has been placed, you will be given time for the implant to heal, and for the titanium to fuse with the bone in your jaw.
- When the titanium has fused and your gumline has healed, your dentist will place the abutment and then attach one of our beautiful porcelain dental crowns.
