What’s the best way to replace a missing tooth? A dental implant from Smiles By Sands. Today’s advanced dental implants allow us to restore your missing teeth for a natural, healthy and attractive smile you can be proud of.
If you’ve been procrastinating about correcting the problem of missing teeth due to cost, or because you believe dental implants are merely a cosmetic enhancement, you should know that dental implants are strong replacements with stability you shouldn’t try to get by without. Smiles By Sands has several affordable options to assist with your budget concerns.
Why Procrastination May Be the More Expensive Option
Failing to replace a missing tooth can lead to:
- Shifting of other teeth
- Bite problems
- Bone loss in the jaw
- An older appearance
Choosing to replace your missing teeth is a sensible decision that provides essential support for other teeth and creates a more appealing smile.
How a Dental Implant Can Help You
A dental implant is anchored by a lab-created tooth root and capped with a porcelain crown for a replacement tooth that looks and feels like your natural tooth. To better understand dental implants, review our dental implant Smile Gallery.
Here’s how the dental implant procedure works:
- The artificial tooth root, made from titanium and called a “post’, is surgically implanted into the jawbone along with the implant
- As the body heals from this procedure, the implant and jawbone fuse together. This is called “osseointegration”
- A porcelain crown is anchored to the post and checked for perfect fit
The result is a permanent restoration that looks and functions like a normal tooth.
