If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you may want to consider getting dental implants. Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth, which is an important thing to do if you want to make sure that other teeth do not try to move into gaps left by the missing teeth. If you are interested in learning more about getting Willoughby dental implants, and if you are a good candidate for the procedure, we hope that you will visit us at our dental practice, Abriani Smiles, to see our expert dentist, Dr. Danute (“Donna”) Abriani.
In order to get dental implants, our dentist will first need to determine that your jawbone is thick enough and healthy enough to withstand the oral surgery. Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for getting dental implants, our dentists will surgically insert a titanium dental implant root for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There will then be a waiting period of several months during which time the jawbone will fully heal, and the Willoughby dental implants will fully fuse to the jawbone. Once this has occurred, our dentist will permanently attach a beautiful porcelain crown to the top portion of each dental implant. At this point your dental implants will be complete and you will be able to eat anything you want in total comfort, without worrying that the dental implant will slip or embarrass you in any way. The porcelain crown will fully color-match the adjacent teeth, so that no one will be able to know that you have a dental implant in your mouth. Dental implants also serve other important functions, such as keeping your jawbone from atrophying due having a missing tooth. This means that you will be able to retain your youthful appearance, as your facial appearance will not change due to missing teeth.
