Having missing teeth can be a negative factor in your oral health. Did you know, if you go too long without a tooth in place, you can suffer bone loss? Well, it’s true! That is why dental implants are vital to restoring your smile and giving your jaw the support it needs. Here at Periodontal Consultants in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, our team offers dental implants, so you can have a smile restoration you can be proud of.
Dental implants are an effective way to replace a missing tooth and are a brilliant choice if you are looking for a long-term restoration. Restoring a lost tooth is important because, without a tooth to link to the jaw bone, you could risk bone loss in your jaw. The dental implant acts as the root of the tooth, providing your jaw bone the support it needs.
Titanium is the material of choice when it comes to dental implants because they work so well with our human body. Once the implant is surgically placed, your bone will start to fuse around the dental implant making it a strong anchor of support for your smile. During the healing period, your doctor may recommend a diet of gentle foods for your smile.
When your healing time is over, Dr. Ali M Arastu will be able to customize a dental crown to place over the dental implant. The dental crown is important because it will look like your natural tooth, so you have a complete smile restoration.
