Dental implants are a beautiful natural-looking solution for missing teeth. They are the modern day treatment of choice for tooth replacement. Implant restorations look and feel totally natural. At Dentistry by Design, Dr. Steven E. Sitrin emphasizes proper fit, so that you can eat many foods without discomfort. As an added bonus, implants help maintain a youthful facial appearance by helping prevent future bone loss.
Dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone. Full Implants are natural-looking and feel just like your own teeth. A miniature titanium post is implanted into the jaw to take the place of the tooth root. After the area is healed, a porcelain crown is fitted onto the post. Good hygiene, proper diet and professional cleanings can help your implants last for many years.
Implants may serve as anchors for the attachment of replacement teeth, crowns, and partial or full dentures. Unlike dentures, there is no problem with slippage, so you can eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Overall, most people find that dental implants are comfortable, convenient, and improve the function and appearance of their teeth.
Dental implants are not for everyone. Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and bones to support the implant structure. For a consultation on dental implants, call the experts at Dentistry by Design in Edison, New Jersey at (732) 853-8448 or request an appointment online.
