Considering Dental Implants? Here's How the Process Works
You walk out of your favorite restaurant frustrated again! When will you ever learn that you can't properly chew the steak you used to enjoy? Why do you continue to embarrass yourself by ordering it? These are the thoughts that plague a person living with a missing tooth as it greatly affects their daily lives.
The good news is that dental implants from our Concord, NH dental office may be a solution for you. Here's how the process works.
A dental implant is the best choice for tooth replacement the industry currently has to offer because it protects your healthy teeth by replacing your tooth and protects your bone by restoring your root. A titanium post is placed into your bone by an oral surgeon and then given time to heal and integrate with your bone. After the appropriate healing time has passed, a stable and firm foundation is created for your new tooth, while your bone is kept healthy and stimulated by your dental implant.
Our doctors will customize a beautiful new tooth for you that will help you enjoy all the function you had before. This means you'll be eating and chewing steak at your favorite restaurant again in no time. Your new implant crown will also be shaded to match your existing teeth and complement your smile.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Dental implants can accommodate most patients, however they do require that you are in good overall health and have enough healthy bone structure to support them. With a thorough evaluation and x-rays, our doctors can decide if implants will work for your needs. If implants don't happen to be in your future, we'll discuss other options for replacing your teeth with you.
The important thing is to not lose hope if you're struggling with a missing or failing tooth. There are solutions for you, and we're happy to help you restore your smile. Contact White Park Dental today to learn more.
