A smile is a great way to convey confidence, friendliness, and approachability. When you’ve lost a tooth, you might not always feel like dental implantssmiling. Dental implant restorations from Dr. Wyman Martin at The Martin Dental Center for Oral Health and Aesthetics in Roswell, GA can help you regain your smile.
Dental Implants Benefits:
Dental implants can have a positive effect on your appearance while also boosting confidence. They offer a long-term tooth replacement option. Dental implants are actually permanently installed in your mouth, therefore, they are extremely durable and can last for the rest of your life with proper care. By replacing a missing tooth with an implant, adjacent teeth do not need to be disturbed. Since crowns on dental implants are not connected to other teeth, it is easy to floss between your teeth.
Dental Implant Installation:
Installation of dental implants is a relatively complicated procedure that involves a few visits with a specialist. In order for the implant to become a permanent fixture in your mouth, just like your natural teeth, it is affixed to the jawbone. The implant will be left alone for several months so that it can fuse with the bone through a process referred to as osseointegration. This is how the implant becomes permanently fixed in place.  Once osseointegration has occurred, your dentist will attach the abutment and dental crown. The component known as an abutment is screwed onto the implant and the crown will then fit over the abutment. Once everything is in place, you will have a replacement tooth that looks just like the natural teeth surrounding it. Dr. Martin, your Roswell dentist, can provide more details about the process.
If you are missing teeth and want to recover your smile, your bite and your confidence, dental implants can help you achieve this. For dental implant restorations in Roswell, schedule an appointment with Dr. Martin by calling
