Dental implants replace missing teeth with natural-looking restorations. Implants are titanium posts that are permanently placed in your jawbone. At Family Tree Dental Care, Dr. Hong creates custom restorations such as crowns, bridges, and implant dentures to attach to the implants and replace one or more missing teeth.
The titanium in your dental implants is not only safe, but it encourages the bone in your jaw to fuse to it during a healing period before you get your restorations. Because of this process, which is called osseointegration, your implants remain sturdy for a lifetime.
An in-house oral surgeon places your dental implant after careful planning the procedure with digital scanning, X-rays, and other technology. After osseointegration, you can visit Family Tree Dental Care for your restoration.
At Family Tree Dental Care, Dr. Hong uses detailed images and precise scans to assess the implant’s size, shape, and position. Using the scans, she can create a dental crown, bridge, or implant denture that attaches to the dental implant for a natural look.
Dr. Hong creates high-quality implant restorations meant to last for decades. These restorations match the shades of your other remaining natural teeth and are similar or identical in shape and size to the original teeth they replace.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you should consider all of the notable advantages that dental implants have to offer over other treatment options like bridges or dentures with no implant support. Compared to other options, dental implants can offer:
Furthermore, implant-supported restorations don’t rely on nearby teeth or your gums for support. They are directly supported by your jawbone. Plus, they prevent jawbone deterioration.
You should continue visiting Family Tree Dental Care for regular exams and cleanings for the best possible long-term results with dental implants.
