Years ago, the only option for replacing missing teeth was dentures. Over time, dentists were able to create partial dentures to replace only a few teeth. They also discovered how to create bridges that were attached permanently with cement to adjacent teeth. While all of these methods were good for ensuring that one’s smile looked adequate, they were not very good at creating strong jawbones or preserving complete facial structures. However, with dental implants in Chesterfield, you can create a beautiful smile and a healthy oral cavity.
A dental implant is created in a two-step process. First, your dentist will prep the area in your mouth and insert the metal screw into your jawbone. This is a surgical process, but you will be kept comfortable throughout the time. This screw must be given time to heal before the tooth-like structure is placed on the top. This will ensure that it is strong and healthy before you begin to use it.
During this time, your dentist will have a crown made to fit over the implant. The crown will look just like the rest of your teeth and will be color-matched perfectly. At your final appointment, the crown will be placed securely on your implant.
Dental implants are far superior to their counterparts because they preserve jaw health. Plus, they make talking, biting and chewing easy as well. With dental implants in Chesterfield, there is no need for you to give up beauty for the benefit of oral health. Dental implants look surprisingly like your existing teeth and are just as strong as well. If you are ready to experience the difference that implants can make in your mouth, turn to Jonathan W.
