Now that they’re available here at Affordable Dental Clinics, you can get dental implants near you. Implants are one of the best ways to replace missing teeth. The idea behind them is simple but very effective. After getting an implant, you’ll forget you ever even had a missing tooth. People lose teeth for different reasons. Sometimes a tooth is lost after a fall or because of an infection. Regardless of what happened, we can provide you with dental implants here at Affordable Dental Clinics to get everything back to normal.
The thing we appreciate the most about implants is that they’re independent. They don’t need other teeth to stay in place because they’re directly attached to the jawbone, just like natural teeth. This attachment is achieved through a titanium screw.
After we assess your dental cavity, we place a titanium screw into your jawbone. This is all done under anesthesia, so you won’t feel any pain. It takes time for the screw to become firmly attached to the jawbone, so you’ll have to come back a few months later so we can finish the implant. In the meantime, we’ll cover the screw with an artificial tooth.
When you come back for another visit, we’ll confirm that the screw is properly attached before replacing the temporary tooth with a permanent one. You can now eat, chew, speak, and smile freely.
Ever since implants were introduced, other replacement options like bridges and dentures became less popular. That’s because they rely on attachment to other teeth, which requires modification to these supporting teeth. Implants are independent.
Dental implants usually last much longer too. If taken care of properly, your implant(s) can last a lifetime. Even if the artificial tooth covering the screw cracks, it can easily be replaced. Implants are permanent and can’t be taken off at night or before any activities. Only partial dentures are removable.
