Dental Implant Treatment
Dental implants are sometimes confused with replacement teeth. They are not just replacement teeth but rather replacement teeth roots. They are inserted into your jaw structure to provide a stable base for an actual replacement tooth, or crown. The crown is attached to the top of the implant, and then you have a full tooth replacement.
What Dental Implants Can Do
Dental implants are able to anchor single crowns, bridges, or a whole restorative dental arch. At Laura Y. Ki, DDS, PC, we concentrate on single tooth replacements and restoring dental implants with new replacement crowns. For more complicated procedures, we have some trusted partners that we will refer you to. They are able to handle more involved cases, and we want to make sure that you get the level of care and attention you need to fix your smile.
Benefits Of Dental Implants
Dental implants are truly an investment in the future health of your smile. Some of the benefits of these amazing devices are as follows:
- Stability – A unique trait that dental implants have is that they bond to your bone. This process is called osseointegration and literally means to become part of the bone. This gives you unparalleled stability that can only be matched by a natural tooth root. Science has finally found an option that gives you nearly exactly what the real thing can.
- Durability – Your natural teeth are meant to last your entire life, and dental implants are meant to do the same. With proper care and maintenance, your dental implant can very well last upwards of 25 or more years in your mouth. If the crown placed on top ever wears out or needs to be replaced, simply come see Dr. Ki to get an implant restoration in the works for you immediately.
- Appearance – Unlike ill-fitting dentures, your dental implant will not move or look anything but natural while in your mouth. This means that you can smile with confidence, knowing that your smile looks as good as, or better than, it ever has.
- Dental Health – When you lose a tooth, it leaves a space in your jaw. If you don’t fill that space with something, namely a dental implant, your jaw structure will begin to deteriorate. Dental implants from Dr. Ki help to preserve the bone structure in your jaw and keep your remaining teeth safe. This is something that no other tooth replacement option will do for you.
