What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial anchors that act as tooth roots that are surgically implanted into the jawbone. These implants act as a sturdy foundation for artificial tooth replacements, such as bridges or crowns. They are designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth, making them a popular and effective solution for missing teeth.
Why Are Dental Implants Needed?
Missing teeth can not only affect your appearance but also impact your overall oral health. When there is a gap in your mouth, the surrounding teeth may shift positions to fill the space, leading to bite problems and potential jaw pain. Dental implants help maintain the structure of your jawbone and prevent further dental issues.
What Is a Dental Implant Procedure Like?
Dr. Sheils and his team follow a thorough and personalized process to ensure the success of your dental implant procedure. First, we will conduct a comprehensive examination and create a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Then, using our state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, we will surgically place the implants into your jawbone. The healing process typically takes a few months, after which we will attach your custom-made replacement teeth to the implants.
