If you are missing one or more teeth due to gum disease, tooth decay, injury, or a tooth extraction, dental implants provide a great option to replace missing teeth. An implant provides you with a natural looking, long-lasting and functional tooth replacement option.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant consists of a titanium post that is surgically inserted into the bone beneath the gums. These posts have biochemical properties which allow them to naturally fuse with the jawbone and create a strong foundation for a permanent or removable tooth replacement. Essentially, the post acts as the root or anchor for the new tooth or teeth. The dentists at Citracado Dental Group work with experienced surgeons and an expert dental lab to ensure you receive dental implants that feel and look like natural teeth.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants not only help you keep your natural bone structure, but also make it resistant to further decay and gum disease. This helps you maintain the shape of your face, and prevents future bone loss where teeth are missing. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, and are very long-lasting. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, whereas dentures or other replacement alternatives may need to be replaced every ten or fifteen years.
Am I good candidate for dental implants?
Dental implants have a wide range of indications and are very versatile. Our dental health care team will work with you to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. During your initial consultation, we will review your dental and medical history, perform a dental exam, take x-rays, and discuss your goals for your dental health. Our top priority is to help every patient find the treatments and solutions to improve your immediate and long term dental health. If dental implants are right for you, we will discuss which types of implants fit your condition and specific needs, and help you make a plan to get them!
