Dental implants are a reliable and aesthetic solution for people who have lost one or more teeth. At Galleria Dentistry, we have the state-of-the-art tools and the extensive experience to deliver the results you want. Revitalize your smile today with an implant that looks and functions just like all your natural teeth.
How Dental Implants Work
The implantation begins with a replacement for the root of your tooth. This new device is a titanium screw that is secured to the jaw bone. We use titanium because the bone will naturally fuse to the metal, creating a bond that is strong and durable.
Once the bone has healed around the titanium root, we will place the abutment on top of it which will then secure the new porcelain crown in place. This crown has been made to fit the appearance and space in your mouth, so no one will know that one of your teeth was produced in a laboratory.
The final appearance will be indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth, and care and maintenance are the same– it takes the same amount of brushing and flossing to ensure bacteria doesn’t build up on them. And, once everything is fully healed in place, you can still eat all your favorite foods.
Why It Matters
If you lose a tooth, it can lead to several problems. The remaining teeth can start to shift out of place and become loose, which could change your bite and maybe even affect your facial appearance. It also opens you up to infections, so it’s important to take care of missing teeth as soon as possible. Contact us today to set up your appointment and fully restore your beautiful smile.
