If you have lost a tooth, a dental implant may be the perfect solution to restore it. Dental implants can hold a single crown, dentures, or bridges to restore some or even all of your teeth. We’d be excited to restore your great smile! Call Androscoggin Valley Dental for an appointment.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a replacement tooth root made out of titanium. It fuses to the jawbone, so it can be a secure base for a dental crown or another restoration, such as dentures. This can allow you to chew and smile again! A restored tooth can also protect your other teeth from uneven wear and uncomfortable movement.
The dental implant procedure consists of two stages:
- Placing Implants: A dental implant is surgically put into the jawbone. This titanium tooth root will then gradually become a permanent, secure part of the jawbone over the weeks of healing. You could receive temporary crowns or other restorations until you’re ready for your permanent ones.
- Tooth Restoration: When your implant is fully integrated into your jawbone, we can bring you in for a restoration. This can involve placing a color-matched, customized tooth crown on your implant, or we could place dentures on several implants.
At Androscoggin Valley Dental, we are experienced in restoring your unique smile once your implant procedure is completed by a surgeon and recovery is complete. Restoring your teeth will help you chew better, improve your nutrition, and prevent the pain of exposed gums.
We will make your restorations look and work just like natural teeth. Your friends and family shouldn’t say, “Look at those restorations!” They shouldn’t notice anything out of the ordinary. They should just enjoy your beautiful, confident smile again.
