If you have missing teeth, you’re not alone. Countless Americans struggle with the discomfort and self-consciousness that comes with having an incomplete smile. There are lots of tooth replacement methods out there, but not all of them are created equal. Many individuals have a hard time with uncomfortable dentures that slide around or fall at the worst possible moment. When you get your full, complete, and youthful smile back, you want to do it right. You want replacement teeth that:
- Feel comfortable in your mouth
- Stay in place while chewing and talking
- Stimulate your jawbone to prevent deterioration
- Look natural and attractive
- Function just like real teeth do
Dr. Feller offers dental implants so that you can have replacement teeth that have all of these qualities. Dental implants are a popular and permanent solution to complete your smile.
First, your dentist will place your dental implants directly into your jawbone. These dental implants are small, strong titanium rods that will work in your mouth like replacement tooth roots. This surgical procedure is followed by a few months of healing. During this time, these small titanium rods will fuse with your jawbone. Once the implants have fused with the jawbone, they will stimulate the bone to keep it healthy and prevent it from deteriorating. After your rest period, you will return to the office, so that Dr. Feller can restore the dental implants with crowns, which will act like replacement teeth.
Dental implants are beautiful, comfortable, and realistic. Because they stay in the mouth at all times, they are more similar to natural teeth than other tooth replacement solutions are.
