Are you missing one of your teeth, or do you need to get one of your teeth removed? Having a missing tooth in your mouth can make you feel more self-conscious about smiling, and it can also make it more difficult to chew and eat your favorite foods. In addition, empty spaces in your mouth can negatively affect the health of your surrounding teeth, causing them to move from their original positions, which can also lead to long-term deterioration of the jaw. Fortunately, a high-quality dental implant can help you eliminate all of these problems.
At Plymouth Dentistry, we can restore your missing teeth with a dental implant crown that perfectly matches the natural teeth that surround it. In conjunction with one of the skilled oral surgeons that we work with, you can enjoy a new dental implant that protects your oral health and gives you great new smile.
What Is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are a tooth restoration method that can potentially last a lifetime. Whereas bridges are held in place by crowns on your surrounding teeth, dental implants are secured to your jaw. An oral surgeon will first insert the metal implant into your bone. After it has been placed and has fused to your bone, we can provide a custom crown to fill the gap in your smile.
One of the dangers of losing a tooth is that your jawbone will stop receiving stimulation from that tooth and slowly begin to deteriorate. Because a dental implant functions just like a natural tooth and is attached to your jaw directly, it will provide the natural stimulation necessary to protect the health of your bone.
No One Will Be Able to Tell the Difference with Custom Dental Implants
When we create the crown for your implant, we will take an impression of your teeth so that the crown will fit perfectly and feel comfortable and natural. We will also shade the crown so that it totally blends in with your natural teeth, and no will be able to tell the difference.
In addition to dental implant crowns, we can also provide dental implant bridges as well as implant-retained dentures. These solutions provide the same benefits as a normal dental implant but can help you replace larger numbers of teeth in your mouth.
