Does Your Smile Need Dental Implants?

Posted .

When you lose a permanent tooth, it can have a big effect on the function and the appearance of your smile, but we offer many options for tooth replacement at Montes Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, such as dental implants. We invite you to learn more about dental implants and how they can improve your smile to help you replace missing teeth.

Dental implants are custom dental restorations that are fused with the jawbone. Titanium posts are attached to custom dental crowns to mimic the appearance of your natural teeth and restore the feeling of a real tooth.

The nature of dental implants is quite straightforward, making them an appealing option for many patients who have suffered tooth loss. The process is completed over a few visits to Montes Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, beginning with a complete oral exam that determines the health of your mouth and whether your jawbone is dense enough to support the dental implant. Then, the titanium post is attached in the gums and jawbone to undergo a fusing period before the dental crown is placed on top. At the completion of the process, you can have a new tooth that is very similar to your natural teeth.
