Have you heard that dental implants can permanently restore your smile? It’s true! Our team wants to talk to you about dental implants, the permanent dental restoration.
Dental implants one of the most effective ways to replace missing teeth and are an excellent choice if you are interested in receiving a long-term restoration. It is important to restore missing teeth to avoid the risk of bone loss in your jaw that occurs when the bone does not have a tooth to fuse with. A dental implant acts as both the root and crown of the tooth, providing your smile with the support and aesthetic appearance it needs.
Dr. Norman B. Fine uses titanium as his implant material of choice because it is very compatible with the body. In fact, when the implant is surgically placed in the bone, the bone tissues begins to fuse around the the titanium screw, creating a strong anchor for the dental restoration that will go on top. During this healing period, we will provide you with specific instructions on what to eat and how to care for a dental implant.
At the completion of the healing process, we will provide a custom-made dental crown to attach to and cover the dental implant. The dental crown completes the restorative process and allows you to eat, speak, and smile with ease.
