Restoring your smile through Implant Treatment in Centerville
We can probably all think back to a time when losing a tooth was something we looked forward to happening. You would spend days, maybe even weeks waiting for that loose tooth to be free and then dash off to put it under your pillow and wait to see what the tooth fairy brought in return.
Losing a tooth as an adult is no longer the rite of passage it was as a child. Tooth loss can be an embarrassing event that leaves you unhappy with your appearance and it might even have you avoiding social situations. Tooth loss can happen for a variety of reasons: tooth decay, poor oral hygiene, disease, or even injury. Although losing a tooth is unfortunate, it doesn’t have to ruin your self-esteem. With dental implants from Alex Bell Dental, you can fill that gap in your smile permanently.
Everyone deserves a smile that they love. For restoration after a tooth loss, many patients are turning to dental implants. Composed of titanium rods, implants are inserted into the jawbone where they fuse with and become part of the natural structure of the mouth. A dental crown is placed on top of the implant to create a natural appearance and restore functionality.
Dental implants are popular for many reasons. They not only return your smile to its former glory, but they can also make it easier to perform daily tasks like chewing and speaking, which become difficult with gaps where teeth should be. Missing teeth can cause other teeth to shift further out of place, which can necessitate extensive restorations or even orthodontic treatment. Implants help keep the natural structure of your teeth intact.
The dental implant procedure is spaced out over several appointments. Once completed, they require no specialized care. With regular brushing and flossing, you can ensure that your implants remain long-term fixtures in your mouth. We advise patients to avoid habits such as clenching teeth or chewing on hard objects, as these have the potential to break the crown covering the implant.
