Dental Implants Dentist in Troy Discusses Innovative Tooth Replacement Option

Written by Dr. Bentley on Sep 23, 2014

Dental implants are an exciting and relatively new tooth replacement option. Placed by the Dental Implants Dentist in Troy, they imitate the structure of natural teeth. Just as important, they feel and look like your real teeth.

Dental implants are created using titanium posts surgically implanted into the jawbone. The beauty of this titanium root is that it actually bonds with the bone in the jaw to provide a stable foundation for a new dental restoration.

A dental implant is a stable and natural-looking tooth replacement option that has the benefit of allowing you to eat and drink normally. You care for them the same way you would for your natural teeth. The placement of the titanium implant in the jaw helps to preserve the density of the jaw bone by filling the space where the tooth root used to be. Dental implants can be used to stabilize bridges and dentures as well as to replace missing teeth.

The Dental Implants Dentist in Troy can usually place the implant wherever you have a missing tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth or several teeth by acting as a bridge between them. We also use the same medical grade of titanium to stabilize dentures and partials. Dental Implants need to be cared for properly, but they will not develop cavities the way that natural teeth do. The restoration will need proper care so that your dental implant can provide a lifetime of service.

Replacing your teeth is good for both your overall health and your appearance. Missing teeth create a gap that is not only unattractive but will eventually distort the structure of your jaw.

If you’re tired of the inconvenience of having a missing tooth, contact our office to arrange a consultation. Our dentist will be happy to spend time with you to discuss your options and decide if a dental implant is the right option for you.
