What are dental implants?

Dental implants permanently replace missing teeth. Your LB Dental P.C. dentist implants strong metal posts into your jaw and secures a realistic replacement tooth over the post.

Dental implants look natural and beautiful. The teeth don’t decay like real ones, so you won’t get cavities. If you care for them correctly (which is no different than caring for natural teeth) your dental implants can last for many years — potentially a lifetime.

The LB Dental P.C. team takes the time to ensure that every aspect of the dental implant procedure is comfortable and precise, offering an unrivaled quality of service and care.

 

Why would I need dental implants?

Missing teeth are embarrassing, making you want to hide your smile and affecting your self-esteem. Replacing missing teeth isn’t just a cosmetic issue, though. The space where a tooth is lost can easily develop a bacterial infection. Your other teeth might shift out of place, making it hard for you to speak or eat properly.

The LB Dental P.C. team understands the hardship a missing tooth can cause. They provide dental implants that help you regain your self-confidence, improve your health, and enjoy life more.

Before proceeding with dental implants, your dentist examines your gums and jawbone to make sure they’re healthy and suitable for the implants. If you have cavities or gum disease, they’ll need treatment before you have your dental implants.

If your jawbone isn’t deep or strong enough, you might need bone graft oral surgery before having implants.

 

What does having dental implants involve?

First, your dentist takes a digital impression of your mouth so the dental lab can create a new tooth. Each artificial tooth matches the size, color, and shape of your remaining teeth, so your smile appears completely natural.

The next step is to implant the metal post under your gum line. Your dentist secures the metal post to your jawbone. Over the following few months, the metal post fuses with your jawbone, creating a sturdy synthetic root system comparable to natural tooth roots.

Your new tooth fits over the fused metal post. It’s so secure that you can eat your favorite foods and have an active lifestyle without worrying about your tooth getting loose or falling out.
