Did you know, dental implants can restore your smile? Well, it’s true! The days of feeling self-conscious or embarrassed about your smile can be over when you consider a dental implant as your smile restoration of choice. That is why, our team here at Kentuckiana Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates in Louisville, Kentucky, is here to talk to you about dental implants and how they can impact your smile.
Dental implants are an effective way to restore a missing tooth and are an exceptional choice if you are looking for a long-term restoration. Restoring a lost tooth is important because, without a tooth to fuse to the jaw bone, you could risk bone loss in your jaw. The dental implant acts as the root of the tooth, giving your jaw bone and smile the support it needs.
Titanium is the main material of choice when it comes to any dental implant restoration because they work so well with our body. Once the implant is surgically placed in your jaw, your bone will begin to fuse around the dental implant making it a strong anchor of support for your smile. During the healing period, your doctor may recommend a diet of softer foods and cool drinks for your smile.
When your healing period has ended, Dr. Will Allen will be able to create a dental crown to place over the dental implant. The dental crown is important because it completes the smile restoration process.
