Go from toothless to a full smile again with dental implants.

Dental implants have changed the way your Silver Springs dentist Dr. Susan Pearson can replace your missing teeth. So what are Dental Implants dental implants and how can they provide a long-term solution to your tooth loss? Find out more about dental implants in detail and how they may be able to help your smile.

A dental implant is actually designed to replace your missing tooth’s roots. Just like tooth roots, your implant will become permanently fused with your jawbone through a natural process known as osseointegration. Once the implant is placed in the jawbone they can’t be seen. You may think that implants can only be used to replace one missing tooth but besides holding dental crown implants, can also hold dental bridges and dentures to replace all or most of your missing teeth.

So, how do dental implants connect to the jawbone permanently? Implants are made from titanium, which is a strong, biocompatible material that your body doesn’t reject. Because of this, titanium is a popular metal used in many other procedures like joint replacements. Once the implant is placed into the jawbone it’s given a couple months to heal. During this time the bone and tissues surrounding the implant begin to fuse with it, locking it firmly into place. This is the success behind dental implants!

From there your Silver Springs dentist Dr. Pearson will perform a couple procedures to ensure that the dental crown stays permanently onto the implant. Dental implants are one of the most effective treatments for replacing missing teeth for the long term. Implants are truly the next best replacement for natural teeth because they are the only dental work that truly becomes part of your mouth.

If you are looking to replace one, two or all of your missing teeth, dental implants could give you the smile you’ve been wanting. And your Silver Springs dentist Dr. Pearson can help!
