Dental implants are convenient
Dental implants are convenient because unlike dentures they don't have to be removed for cleaning. Implants become a permanent part of your smile and never decay. The ceramic crowns used are designed to be as strong as and blend in with your natural teeth.
Dental implants are strong
Implants are made from a titanium post implanted in the jaw bone and a ceramic crown on top. When you get a dental implant at our Windsor Locks, CT, practice, the implant fuses to your jaw bone over a period of weeks in a process called osseointegration. This is what gives the implant its strength.
Dental implants save your jaw bone
When you have a missing tooth, the jaw bone in that area is exposed and its strength may become compromised. With an implant, your jaw bone fuses to the implant post. This gives your jaw bone strength and prevents some facial sagging in the area of the missing tooth.
Caring for dental implants is easy
Caring for your dental implant is as simple as continuing to take great care of your teeth. Brush for two minutes twice a day and floss at least once a day. Be sure you floss in the area of the implant and remove all debris from around the crown. If you are a teeth grinder, your dentist will recommend a nightguard to protect the new crown.
Missing teeth cause other dental problems and can compromise your jaw bone if they are not replaced. Dr. Yanik of Yanik Dental places dental implants for patients to revive smiles! Contact us for an appointment in Windsor Locks, CT, at (860) 623-1116.
