Do you suffer from missing teeth? If so, you are not alone. Having a missing tooth or missing teeth is common for many different reasons. If you suffer from missing teeth then dental implants may be right for you.
Dental implants appear like a regular tooth. Dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. Your dentist can shape and color the implant to match perfectly to the surrounding teeth.
Dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone, which will give your new tooth the support it needs. The healing process can take a few months. Your bone will actually heal around the implant making it extremely strong and helps hold your artificial tooth in place.
During the healing process, your dentist may advise you to eat softer foods so your jaw can heal properly. Once the jawbone heals, your dentist will place an artificial tooth over the implant post to replace your missing tooth.
