Dental implants will fill the gaps in your smile left by missing teeth! Whether you had a tooth pulled or one unexpectedly knocked out, keep reading to learn how Riverview Dentistry can help.
Whether your missing tooth is the result of periodontitis, tooth decay, or an injury, we can help fill the gaps in your smile with a dental implant. Dental implants are a durable and natural-looking alternative to dentures.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a natural looking solution to fix the gaps in your smile caused by missing teeth. An artificial tooth root is inserted into the jawbone, and then is later capped with a crown or bridge. We provide services for single or multiple missing teeth. Many patients choose a single implant to help fill a gap and complete their smile.
What does the implant procedure involve?
The implant is placed into the jawbone and left to heal until it has fully integrated into the jaw. Healing time varies with every patient. It can take anywhere from six weeks to several months to properly heal the implant. When the implant is stable, it will act as an anchor to hold the crown or denture in place.
Are there other teeth replacement options?
You may not be a candidate for implants. Bridges and dentures are also viable options to replace missing teeth. Consult with your dentist at Riverview Dentistry to learn more about your customized treatment plan.
