Missing one or more of your teeth takes its toll in many ways. You may have difficulty or feel uncomfortable eating the foods you used to enjoy, and your diet and nutrition may suffer. You may feel self-conscious or embarrassed about talking or smiling in front of others, causing your job or career to suffer. When you’re missing a tooth it’s always on your mind. The good news is that dental implants in Williamsville, NY may be just the solution you’re looking for.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant replaces your root by surgically placing a titanium post into your jawbone. This creates a stable foundation for your new tooth, or crown that will attach to your root through an abutment after the appropriate healing time has passed. Your new root protects the health and integrity of your jawbone. Without a replacement your bone will begin to deteriorate, putting you at a greater risk for more tooth loss and greatly affecting the appearance of your face.
What makes dental implants so successful is the fact that they replace both your root and your tooth, which is the closest substitute for your natural tooth. Your porcelain crown is custom designed to match your existing teeth so no one will ever know you were missing a tooth. You’ll also be able to brush and floss your implant just as you would your natural tooth, and enjoy all of your favorite foods.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Dental implants do require the patient to be in general good health and have enough healthy bone structure to support the implant. The first step to determining if you’re a candidate for an implant is to schedule a consultation with your 14221 dentist. With a thorough examination and some x-rays, we’ll be able to let you know if implants are the right treatment option for you.
