Solutions to missing teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth at Really Smile.
For decayed or missing teeth, ask your Carmel, Indiana dentist, Dr. David A. Smith, about dental implants.
Dental implants are great solutions to missing teeth because they’re:
- Stable – the can even securely anchor dentures and dental bridges
- Not dependent on nearby teeth to anchor them.
Because they are stable and permanent, dental implants can also help do away with the inconveniences associated with using dentures.
A dental implant has two parts. It has an artificial tooth root and a crown. The implant is placed through a hole about the size of a BB, and the implant is made of a material that the human body likes so well that it will actually grow bone to it.
What to expect
Your dentist will first examine your teeth and mouth to determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants.
Treatment will then be performed to place the implant in its final location so that the body can grow bone to it. The entire process of getting dental implants may take a few months to complete.
Your Carmel, IN dentist will then give you instructions on how to take care of your dental implants.
