With summer knocking at your door, many people are doing everything they can to make sure they look their absolute best for the summer season. Whether it is buying the best food for the barbeque or going to the gym to get ready for the beach, many people want to have as much fun and feel as confident inside and out. If you have teeth missing from your smile, you may find it difficult to find confidence in the way you look. You are sure to reconnect with old friends and meet many new people this summer season, so making the best impression is important. Dr. Donald M. Marks and Dr. John A. Martin understand the struggle their patients go through when they have teeth missing from their smile, and they are able to give their patients the smile they have always wanted using dental implants.
A dental implant is a small piece of biocompatible titanium that is placed directly into an empty tooth socket. The titanium post-like implant will act as a new tooth root, and will prevent the rest of the teeth in your mouth from shifting to make up for the empty spaces due to the missing teeth. The bone in your jaw and your gum tissue with bond with the implant over time, creating a strong, permanent bond. After the right amount of healing time as passed, a crown is added on top of your implant– a crown that exactly resembles a natural tooth. At the end of the procedure, you are left with a beautiful, full smile you can be proud of.
Dental implants can be used to anchor a dental crown to completely recreate a tooth, or to hold a fixed bridge permanently in place. Both solutions create a natural-looking row of teeth that you are ready and willing to show off at any given moment! So if you are ready for a beautiful, full smile just in time for summer, make an appointment with Dr. Marks or Dr. Martin, and they will be more than happy to help!
