Dental Implants in Chesapeake, VA.
Are you missing teeth? Do you find that much of the pleasure has gone out of eating and socializing because of it? We’d like to help you find renewed confidence in your smile with dental implants. Implants are the most naturally functioning way to replace one or all of your missing teeth.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a combination of restorations – a small titanium post and a dental implant crown. The technology is supported by decades of research and has offered new freedom to countless patients worldwide.
The Implant Procedure
The initial post placement is a surgical procedure that requires skill and precision for correct placement. Once the site is determined and the implant placed, the implanted titanium bonds with your bone making it a permanent part of your smile.
To replace the tooth surface, Dr. Brown will make impressions of the post and the surrounding teeth for the creation of the replacement tooth or implant crown. This tooth will be created to blend perfectly in your smile.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants perform almost exactly the way your natural teeth do. They are strong and secure so you can eat whatever you like without fear of slippage, and speak and laugh with total confidence.
In addition, dental implants replace both your tooth and your root. Why is that so important? Your tooth root does more than hold your tooth in place – it also acts as a spacer for your other teeth, preventing shifting. Even more importantly, it keeps your jaw bone stimulated which helps prevent bone loss. Because the implant post fuses with your bone, it does the same work your tooth root did, keeping your teeth in place and stimulating the bone to prevent bone loss and the facial collapse that accompanies it.
Clearly, dental implants offer both health and aesthetic benefits – and they keep you looking more youthful!
