Regain Your Smile With Dental Implants
A leading tooth-replacement solution, dental implants are a popular restorative option for many of our patients at King East Dental in Stoney Creek. If you’re looking for a durable, natural-looking, high-quality way to rejuvenate your smile, call us today to discuss whether a dental implant might be right for you!
What are dental implants comprised of and how are they placed?
Dental implants are made up of three parts: an implant post, the abutment, and a restoration (i.e. crown or bridge). The implant post is placed directly into your jawbone during your surgical procedure and acts as a replacement root for the missing tooth; it’s usually made from materials such as titanium or zirconia. This post is then attached to the abutment, which serves as a connector between the implant and the final restoration. Once all parts have been placed in your mouth, you’ll be able to enjoy a beautiful smile that looks and feels just like your natural teeth!
How can a dental implant benefit my oral health?
Dental implants provide many benefits compared to other tooth replacement solutions. They look and feel natural, they don’t require special cleaning techniques, and with diligent care, they can last for many years. Implants also help to preserve healthy bone structure in the jaw, which prevents further tooth loss due to bone deterioration after a tooth is removed.
Who is a candidate for a dental implant?
A dental implant is a great choice for patients who are missing one or more teeth, provided they have healthy gums and sufficient bone structure in the jaw. At King East Dental, our experienced team will conduct a thorough assessment before recommending an implant to ensure it’s the best solution for your unique needs.
