Did you know that a smile restoration might include dental implants to restore your smile back to full function? Well, it’s true! In fact, dental implants are extremely popular in our society because of the mountain of success it has created over the last few decades. That is why, our team here at Dr. Rachel Meyer, DDS in Los Alamos, New Mexico, is happy to talk to you about dental implants and how they can restore your smile.
Dental implants are an amazing choice for most smile restoration needs. When you ache from a lost tooth, a dental implant can complete your missing tooth and save your smile from serious bone loss. The beginning of the dental implant restoration begins with the dental implant is surgically placed deep in your gums to act as the root of your tooth into your jaw bone. The bone in your jaw will fuse to your implant over time making this a strong root and pillar of support in your jaw. Once your dental implant has healed, a dental crown can be created to place over the top of the implant, so your smile looks completely restored.
Dental crowns are not the only thing that can be put over a dental implant. In some cases, dental bridges can be used, or even dentures can be held in place thanks to the pillar of support from the dental implant. Dental implants are extremely sturdy giving your tooth and jaw the support it needs.
