Dental Implants: A Permanent Solution to Replacing Missing Teeth

The loss of permanent natural teeth is never easy. Whether tooth loss occurs due to decay or injury, the repercussions can be devastating. Tooth loss can ruin a smile, hinder your speech, make it difficult to eat, and impair your overall oral health. At Teran Dentistry Center, we offer a life-long solution to replacing lost teeth through dental implants.

How Implants Work to Replace Lost Teeth

Dental implants are permanent fixtures that look, act and feel like natural teeth. They can be used to replace one or multiple teeth, making them a versatile tooth replacement treatment. The dental implant process can take up to 6 months or longer to complete. The beautiful results, however, make this treatment well worth it.

A comprehensive evaluation by our dental team will determine if you’re a good candidate for dental implant treatment. If so, we’ll explain the process to you and outline a plan for treatment. The first step involves embedding an implant into your jawbone surgically to act as a tooth root and then waiting for it to be assimilated into your system, which may take anywhere between three to six months. Once the implant is firmly in place, it will be fitted with an abutment post which will eventually hold a dental crown. Crowns complete the implant process, serving as your replacement teeth.

Why Implants are Ideal for Replacing Lost Teeth

The following are some of the reasons implants are considered the best option for replacing missing teeth:

  • Implants are surgically embedded into your jaw, offering the same stability and support as natural teeth.

  • Implant crowns look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

  • Implants stimulate jawbone growth to prevent bone atrophy.

  • Implants keep surrounding teeth from shifting to maintain your bite and preserve oral health.

  • Implants can last a lifetime, making additional treatments unnecessary.
