Show Your Best Smile for Thanksgiving Photos
Do you have one or more missing teeth that are making you anxious about the holiday season? You don’t need to hide in the back for photos this Thanksgiving! Choose permanent dental implants to replace your missing teeth and show your best smile this season. Dental implants have many benefits that can give your confidence and smile a boost!
Understanding Dental Implants
Dental implants are made up of three parts: the implant post that is inserted into your jawbone, the connecting abutment, and the visible dental crown. They’re the most versatile tooth replacement option, able to support a dental bridge, a denture, or a full arch of fixed teeth. No matter how many teeth you are missing, they can be permanently replaced with dental implants.
The Dental Implant Process
Dental implant treatment begins with a personalized consultation with your implant dentist. This consultation may also include an oral examination and x-rays that will be used to create your unique treatment plan. The next phase of your treatment may include preparatory procedures such as bone grafting and tooth extractions. These can often be completed during the same appointment as your dental implant surgery. Your procedure will be precise and efficient with help from custom surgical guides, and you’ll be complete relaxed while under sedation. Sometimes, depending on the skill and technology of the dentist, dental implants can be completed in one day, so you can get a new smile immediately!
