What to Expect When You Choose Dental Implants
You pass on the work luncheon again because you feel self-conscious about eating in front of a new client. You know this means that the project will likely go to someone else, but you're too embarrassed about your tooth.
Don't let a missing or compromised tooth affect your life any longer! There are excellent choices for replacing missing teeth, and dental implants in Huntsville may just be the solution you've been looking for. Here's what you can expect when you choose implants to replace your missing tooth.
What is a Dental Implant?
Implants are arguably the most successful replacement option because they restore both your root and your tooth. Dr. King will place a titanium post into your jawbone during a simple surgical procedure. Because titanium is biocompatible, it will integrate naturally with your bone during a four to six-month healing process. This creates an excellent foundation for your new tooth that closely mimics your root and helps keep your bone healthy.
Your new tooth is a high-quality porcelain crown that is designed to match your missing tooth in form, function, and aesthetics. You'll be able to eat and chew with ease, and your implant will help you smile with confidence again. You can brush and floss your implant as you normally would, which makes it very easy to care for. You'll enjoy great longevity from your implant, and with regular checkups and an excellent home care routine, it can potentially last a lifetime.
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?
Dr. King can determine if implants are right for you during an examination and x-rays. If you're in good overall health and you have enough healthy bone structure present to support the implant, then you are an excellent candidate for them. Dr. King is proud to offer comprehensive implant dentistry at King Dental, which means that he's able to handle all aspects of your implant procedure including the placement surgery.
