Why Consider Implants?
There are many reasons to consider a dental implant as soon as possible after you lose a tooth. Missing teeth aren’t just a cosmetic concern they are also considered a dental problem. When a tooth is lost, the bone underneath in the jaw area deteriorates. This can result in a shift in your teeth positioning, and can also age you in appearance. In many cases, it can also cause difficulty when it comes to speaking or eating. Waiting too long after a tooth is lost can complicated dental implant placement since the bone shrinks and needs to be reconstructed or the opposing tooth may drop down limiting size of the tooth being replaced.
Implants make a solid attachment site for bridges, dentures, or partial dentures, and they help support the facial muscles and structure. They can be an outstanding choice for many patients as an alternative to leaving a gap. We’ll be glad to talk with you about all the benefits of getting a tooth implant.

The Dental Implant Procedure
A tooth implant usually takes place in three different phases unless there are additional factors that must be taken into consideration. The first phase is placing the implant into the jawbone itself. Once the implant is placed in, there is a waiting period as the bone heals and bonds to the implant. Finally, the tooth itself will be put in and attached to the implant. Although the procedure is relatively simple it is clinically and biologically a complex process that can take a while to engineer and complete, therefore it’s important to be patient and allow every step to be completed in order to have a healthy implants that last and functions for decades.
With that said, implants are a wonderful alternative to missing teeth, and they have become a very popular choice for patients.
