Dental implants are strong, reliable, and attractive dental restorations that can replace your missing teeth and give you the wonderful smile you have always wanted. If you are missing a tooth, it’s time to see if dental implants are right for you! To help you know a little more about dental implants in Coos Bay, Oregon, Dr. Bailey, Dr. Huff, and our dental team are happy to share some facts with you about the restoration.
A dental implant is a unique restoration because it can replace your tooth as well as its roots. This offers sturdy, dependable, and permanent results. The implant includes a titanium post, an abutment, and a dental crown. The treatment will start with our dentists inserting the titanium post in the bone socket of your jawbone. Then, the bone will heal around the post and secure it in place. This is why we use titanium—it works well with the natural bone. Next, your dentists will attach an abutment to the secured post. Finally, they will place a dental crown over the abutment after custom making it in the lab for you.
A dental implant can benefit you and your oral health. It can:
-Improve your appearance
-Improve your speech
-Improve your confidence
-Make eating easier
-Improve your oral health
-Give you the self-assurance you need
Dental implants are also easy to care for. All you need to do is treat it like your other teeth. So, you need to brush it twice a day, floss it once a day, and attend your six-month checkups.
