For many people, having concerns about their smile can prevent them from doing a lot of things. It may be the color of your teeth, the misalignment, or the obvious gaps; either way, insecurities about your smile make you cautious to make a joke, smile, or even tell someone hello. A lot of people, though, are less than confident in their smile because they have teeth missing. Though there are a couple ways to tackle the issue, dental implants at South Shore Dental Care may be a great option!
A consultation with our doctors is the first step in dental implanting. They will be able to get a closer look at your smile, as well as speak with you about your long term goals. Once you are considered to be a candidate, the process begins. A metal implant, looking nearly identical to a screw, is rooted into your jaw bone. This screw-like metal implant will be able to give your new teeth security and immovability. Then the abutment is added, which is in essence a support system for the metal implant as well as the crown to be placed on top. After that, the tooth-resembling crown is cemented to the abutment, finishing your new look!
With a nearly perfect success rate, dental implants will give you back the sense of security may have lost. It can even improve your speech and ability to eat. Another plus point with getting dental implants is the fact they look exactly like your real teeth. Smoothly blending in with your natural teeth, implants are a sure way for you to look as natural as possible. Contact our office to see if you’re a candidate for dental implants, and be prepared to smile from all day, every day!
