Restoring the Function and Appearance of Smiles with Dental Implants
With a complete smile, you can enjoy a nutritious diet and an overall improved sense of confidence in how you look. With an incomplete smile, these things can be difficult, which is why Moorhead Dental Associates offers dental implants. Dental implants are small, titanium posts placed into the jaw. They are a highly effective restorative dentistry solution that also have a cosmetic dentistry component. By filling the gap (or gaps) in your smile with dental implants, you can once again enjoy a sense of confidence and well-being that may be missing from your life.
The Procedure Process
Dr. Skatvold and Dr. Johnson partner with a specialist to oversee your dental implant procedure from start to finish. Your procedure will require a brief oral surgery, which is performed by an oral surgeon or periodontist. Titanium is a biocompatible metal, making bone tissue naturally integrate with posts once they’re in place, forming a solid anchor much like natural teeth roots. Your dentist will design individual crowns or a denture to attach to your implant posts.
Dental implants work well for people who have good oral health and sufficient bone density. Since missing teeth promote bone degeneration, some patients may require bone grafting before implant surgery. Your dentist will assess your case, consult with your oral surgeon or periodontist to plan treatment, and ultimately present you with procedure options.
