When replacing a missing tooth, dental implants provide an excellent opportunity to patients. As the closest tooth replacement option to a natural tooth, dental implants blend in your smile and give you the function your mouth and jaw need to stay healthy.
If you have a missing tooth, Dr. Link at Doylestown Dental Group will assess your oral health, examining your teeth, gums, and jaw to make sure a dental implant is the right tooth replacement solution for you. If Dr. Link recommends a dental implant, the first step will be to place the titanium implant post in your jaw. Once it is successfully implanted, Dr. Link will give it time to heal, bonding with your bone and tissue, before attaching a dental restoration to the implant, usually a dental crown, bridge, or denture.
Generally, the entire process takes a few months. Then you get to enjoy a durable, beautiful tooth replacement that improves your oral health.
Additionally, dental implants are securely anchored to your jawbone, making many patients feel more confident in their tooth replacement choice. They can smile, laugh, talk, and eat without worrying about their tooth replacement coming loose!
