Dealing with a less-than-perfect smile can be a drag and have an impact on your confidence. Fortunately, our dentists at Capital Dental Care will recommend dental procedures to correct this problem and restore your perfect smile. When traditional dentures no longer provide the patient with the necessary support and function, dental implanttreatment is often required.
The implants are made of titanium or other long-lasting materials that will provide you with a comfortable and stable smile for many years. Dental implant surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure that takes one or two hours to complete. This therapy is another option for replacing missing teeth.
The procedure entails inserting artificial dental implants into the patient’s jawbone which can then offer support for missing or damaged teeth. A number of factors, including advanced age, tooth loss caused by trauma, disease, or decay, and insufficient bone density in the jawbone may necessitate this surgery. Dental implants can be used for a variety of purposes aside from just replacing missing teeth. They can also be useful to replace natural teeth that have been extracted due to decay or injury. A dental implant is built by inserting two metal posts into the jawbone (the abutment and the crown), which are then secured with screws. Unlike tooth-supported bridges, dental implants do not demand the reduction of other teeth.
