How do dental implants work?
Dental implants are a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. They are very effective and different from any other tooth replacement option available today.
A missing tooth is unattractive and makes it difficult to speak and eat normally. Solutions like dental bridges are effective for filling the space left by a missing tooth, but they are just a cosmetic solution, not an actual tooth replacement.
Dental implants are the perfect solution if you have a missing tooth, because they don’t just fill the empty space. A tiny post is surgically placed in your jaw and takes the place of the missing root. This post will fully integrate with surrounding bone and tissue, creating a stable base for a dental crown and also protect your jaw from deteriorating.
A dental crown is attached to the implant and functions in exactly the same way as a natural tooth. Once the implant process is complete, you will have a tooth that improves your smile and restores your ability to speak and eat properly.
Choosing a dental implant is a decision that should only be made after careful consideration and evaluation of your situation by Dr. Matar.
