Do you have a gap in your smile due to tooth loss? If so, dental implants offered by your Longwood, FL, dentist, Dr. Ilya Freyman, can restore your lost teeth and improve your smile.
Dental implants offer a long-lasting restoration option
Dental implants rebuild your lost teeth starting with the roots. During minor oral surgery in Longwood, tiny titanium posts are implanted in your jawbone. These posts soon begin to bond to your jawbone and become a permanent part of your jawbone. The posts will serve as the roots for your new teeth and may never need to be replaced.
In most cases, it takes about three to six months for your titanium implants to fully bond to your jawbone. Bonding is essential because it ensures that your implants are just as strong as the natural roots they replace.
After bonding occurs, your dentist connects dental crowns to the tops of the implants using tiny screws. Dental crowns are synthetic restorations that look just like the visible part of your teeth. They're made from an impression of your mouth to ensure a completely natural appearance.
Implants offer several smile-enhancing benefits
Thanks to your new dental implants, you'll be glad to share your smile with the world once again. In addition to improving your self-esteem and confidence, implants also offer a few other advantages.
For instance, with implants, your jawbone will stay strong and healthy due to the constant stimulation that these restorations produce. Without them, tooth loss can cause jawbone resorption and shrinkage. Resorption can cause facial sagging and may even loosen your other teeth.
Implants also prevent your teeth from changing position due to the gaps in your smile. Drifting teeth can affect your bite, alter the appearance of your smile, and make it more difficult to remove cavity-causing plaque from your teeth.
