One of the most exciting developments in modern dentistry is the use of dental implants. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made out of titanium that is placed into your jaw to hold a porcelain tooth, bridge, or denture. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to injury, periodontal disease, or another reason.
Dental implants can be used to improve your smile in a number of ways:
- Replace a missing tooth with a single porcelain implant crown.
- Replace a number of missing teeth with an implant-supported bridge.
- Allow your loose dentures to “snap” firmly and confidently into place. This can be a cost-effective way, affordable to improve your wobbly denture!
Studies are showing that dental implants are actually longer lasting than traditional bridgework. Implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support and cannot decay. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. They are so natural looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
Dr. Althoff plans dental implant reconstruction and works with the area’s top specialists, who place the dental implants for him. Careful restoration with crowns, bridges and dentures are then completed at Southpointe Dental.
