Dental implants are considered one of the most effective means of replacing natural teeth when they are missing. Implants look, feel, and act like natural teeth and restore your smile beautifully. They also last a lifetime to provide a permanent solution to tooth loss. If you’re considering implants to replace missing teeth and live in Fairlawn, Ohio or its surrounding communities, contact Arsmiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry to learn more about our dental implant procedures.
Although the dental implant process is lengthy, it’s still one of the most popular means of replacing missing dentitions. First, a titanium post is embedded into your jaw bone to act as the “root” of your new prosthetic tooth. The titanium post can bond with the bone tissue via a process called osseointegration, by which the support and stability for your new tooth are secured. This process may take anywhere between three to six months to complete. Once the titanium implant has been osseointegrated into your jawbone, it’s ready to be restored with a porcelain crown to replace the lost tooth. This crown is custom-made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth so that it blends in seamlessly with your smile. Upon completing your treatment, the functionality and esthetics of your smile are restored, and you’ll be able to eat, talk, smile, and laugh with confidence and ease.
Dental implants can last a lifetime to meet your restorative dental needs. The titanium post is meant to be permanent, forming a stable, solid foundation for your tooth replacement. This fixture won’t slip or shift over the years as it’s embedded firmly into your jaw bone. Depending on wear and tear, the porcelain crowns that act as your newly restored teeth may need to be replaced after 10-15 years.
