How dental implants from your dentist in Bridgeport, CT, can rebuild your smile
If you have decided on dental implants to replace missing or damaged teeth, you’ve made an excellent choice. You are making an important investment in your smile, and you need to know what to expect from your dental implants.
Dr. Adriana Torena at Allure Dental Group in Bridgeport, CT. provides comprehensive dental care, including dental implants to rebuild your smile.
Let’s start with the dental implant recovery process. The first step in dental implant treatment is to:
Place the dental implant screw in your jaw, during a simple in-office procedure. The implant screw is made of titanium, a biocompatible material that your body won’t reject.
The next stage of the recovery process is when:
Bone begins to grow around the dental implant screw, and fuse with it. Your natural bone will anchor the dental implant screw firmly in place, functioning as the “root” of your new tooth.
The final stage of the recovery process involves:
Placing a beautiful dental implant crown on top of the dental implant screw. You now have a permanent new addition to your smile that can last a lifetime with proper care.
If you are replacing more than one tooth, the dental implant screws can be restored with:
- Several dental implant crowns
- An implant-supported dental bridge
- An implant-supported denture
Since dental implant screws are created out of biocompatible materials, dental implants are extremely successful. In fact, they boast a success rate of over 95 percent, making them the most successful surgical implant.
In addition to being extremely successful, there are other benefits you need to know about dental implants. They are:
Naturally beautiful in appearance; dental implant restorations are made of materials that look just like natural tooth structures.
Fully stable and won’t move around; dental implants are completely surrounded by bone, so they are fixed in place, and you never remove them.
Easy to take care of; you can care for dental implants just like natural teeth, with regular brushing and flossing.
Dental implants are an excellent long-term choice to replace damaged or missing teeth.
