At Rosedale Dental Care, we strive to offer solutions for patients to restore their smile. Dental implants provide patients with a permanent way to replace missing teeth without having to worry about removing an appliance when eating or removing enamel from remaining teeth to anchor a bridge. It’s one of the best solution for restoring smiles that are missing teeth.
A dental implant uses a post as an artificial tooth root, which is placed in the space that a missing tooth leaves in the gums. We use the highest quality dental implants to make sure that your tooth lasts for years to come, giving you a permanently beautiful smile. However, you will still need to visit our office regularly for exams, cleanings, and check-ups. Dental implants look natural, so you can feel confident smiling, speaking, laughing, and eating.
The process of getting a dental implant can take a while, so it is best to prepare for the journey. Your dentist will follow you every step of the way, ensuring that your smile is healthy when you leave our clinic and complete treatment.
During your first visit, the dentist will get x-rays of your teeth and the structure of the jaw to determine where the implant should be placed and the space that is available in between teeth for the implant. Once this is done, the dentist will make sure that you are comfortable before inserting the implant into the bone of the jaw. The implant is then allowed to heal completely, which can take six months, depending on the patient. When the jawbone is healed, a post is placed on the implant, and artificial teeth are attached.
Patients may need dental implants to keep teeth from shifting out of their position in the mouth. They are also a great way to replace missing teeth and can also resolve problems that patients have when chewing food or speaking. If you need more information, schedule an appointment and speak with a professional in our office.
