It’s time you found the solution for your tooth loss. We are here to help.
We know that tooth loss doesn’t just affect your oral health, but also your appearance and self-esteem. Luckily, we live in a world where dental technology is pretty amazing and offers realistic-looking restorations, such as dental implants that both look and act just like a real tooth. From your Roanoke, VA, dentists Dr. Young Park and Dr. Michelle Kim find out how dental implants could restore your smile.
Dental Implants Function Like Real Teeth
When it comes to replacing your missing tooth or teeth, you want only the best. Dental implants are an artificial restoration that resembles a real tooth. In fact, it is the closest you can come to real teeth, which makes it an amazing alternative when you have to have a tooth extracted.
Feel the Confidence
In order for implants to do their job, your dentist will need to surgically place the implant into the jawbone. The number of dental implants you receive will depend on the severity of your tooth loss. For example, if you are only missing a single tooth, then just one implant will need to be placed; however, if you are looking to support a full set of dentures, multiple implants can be placed along the jawbone to hold your artificial teeth firmly in place.
Enjoy Your Favorite Foods
One complaint of denture wearers is that their teeth may shift or move around while they're trying to eat. This makes it a challenge to enjoy a lot of different foods such as a delicious steak. Since dental implants naturally meld together with the jawbone and oral tissue, you’ll enjoy a permanent stable tooth replacement. From there, we can attach your false teeth to the implants to hold your smile firmly in place. Now, you can go out to lunch with colleagues or that dinner date and never have to worry about your smile ever again.
Have Your Smile for Life
Dental implants are made from titanium, an amazingly durable material. Not only that but the implant becomes part of the jawbone; therefore, once the implant is placed, it’s there for life. Of course, you still need to maintain good oral hygiene and visit your dentist for routine checkups, but with the proper care, you could have your new implant for several decades.
