Did you know, you can complete your smile with dental implants? Yes, it’s true! If you are missing teeth, then our dentist, Dr. Jurgina Elezi with Coddington Dental in Quincy, Massachusetts, is here to share with you more information on dental implants.
There are numerous ways a person can lose a tooth in their smile. The most considerable reason among adults is because of gum disease. When gum disease appears, a tooth can become damaged and eventually lost, which leaves your smile with a void that needs to be filled. If the space in your teeth is empty for too long, your bone can begin to deteriorate, or your teeth can start to shift, which can weaken your gums and affect your chewing or talking. To correct this, your dentist may recommend a dental implant restoration.
Dental implants are durable because the implant fuses into your natural bone over time making them very strong. The implant acts as a root of your tooth, and because it is placed in your gumline after it is healed, it can last the rest of your life with proper care and treatment. When the healing process is finished, a dental crown may be used to place on top of the implant, which appears natural and blends well with your neighboring teeth.
As you can see, there are many interesting things about dental implants that could benefit your smile and restore a lost tooth. If you would like more information about dental implants, please call 617-729-4091 today to set up an appointment. We are always happy to help your smile restoration needs!
