Dental Implants-The Next Best Thing to The Real Thing
Unfortunately, losing teeth just happens to be a fact of life sometimes. We are lucky to live in a time that offers a permanent solution to many lost teeth-dental implants. If you want to know how you can get a replacement for a lost tooth that will be so close to the real thing that you may even forget it, read on.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are teeth replacements that use a titanium implant in the jawbone as the attachment point, or artificial root. The implant will fuse, or osseointegrate, with your jawbone over time. When this process is complete, about 2-3 months for most patients, Dr. Carson will then proceed to the next stage, adding the abutment (attachment point) and prosthetic tooth.
Who Can Get Dental Implants?
Patients with sufficient bone mass in the jaw who are in reasonably good health are usually good candidates for dental implants. Only a consultation with your dentist can determine if dental implants are the best tooth replacement option for your particular situation. Why wait?
