People who have lost their teeth are frequently too self-conscious to smile or speak boldly. When food is difficult to chew, they may develop unhealthy eating habits, which can lead to secondary health problems. Dental implants offer clients a comprehensive repair option for missing teeth. Dental implants are placed in patients by trained and experienced dentists at Hansen Family Dental.
What Are Dental Implants?
Tooth loss can occur for a variety of causes, including poor dental hygiene, plaque and tartar buildup, tooth decay, and gum disease. Dental implants are composed of an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jawbone, thereby giving a permanent, stable foundation and structure for a new tooth. An implant differs from previous tooth replacement alternatives in that it replaces not only the tooth but also the root.
Advantages of Dental Implant Treatment
Because dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, they are an appealing alternative for patients looking for an unobtrusive replacement for their missing teeth.
Dental implants are more comfortable than many alternative types of replacement teeth. Because dental implants function similarly to natural teeth, you can eat without fear of your dentures becoming loose, allowing you to consume your favorite meals without trouble or pain.
When you converse, ill-fitting dentures might slip or shift inside your mouth, resulting in garbled or slurred speech and humiliation. With dental implants, you can speak confidently without worry of unintentional movement.
Improved Oral Health
Dental implants make it easier to clean and floss between teeth, resulting in better oral hygiene.
Because dental implants are designed to bond with the bone, they are incredibly durable and can typically endure for many years. Dental implants can last a lifetime if you take appropriate care of them.
The Procedure for Dental Implants
You will meet with one of our dental implant specialists to see if you are a good candidate for dental implants. If this is the case, a personalized treatment plan will be developed.
Using surgical-guided technology, the post will be implanted within your jawbone. You should not experience any pain throughout this operation, and we will make sure you are comfortable at all times.
Once healed, an abutment connects your new custom-designed crown to your post. Your new tooth will look and feel exactly like the rest of your teeth.
