How an Implant Dentist Can Restore Your Smile

You miss it. Your spouse or significant other misses it. Even your kids and coworkers miss it. How long has it been since you truly smiled? Chances are, you still make a conscious decision on how you smile, instead of letting your natural one shine through. Having missing teeth can easily be resolved with dental implants and because your smile is so important, Exclusively Implants wants to do everything we can to help you feel confident and healthy.

Who Needs Dental Implants?

Whether from severe gum disease, non-restorable decay/cavity, accidental damage beyond repair, or a failed root canal, tooth loss can have a dramatic and lasting effect on your teeth and your life if not dealt with in a timely manner. Left untreated, gaps in your smile can not only affect your self-esteem and even appear unsightly, they can also domino into a wide range of issues that you might not be aware of.

Teeth that are adjacent to a space left from tooth loss can tend to shift or tilt into that space, leading to further instability with neighboring teeth in the area which can lead to a misaligned bite. This can cause the teeth in the opposing jaw to move further up or down in an attempt to make contact with a new mate since their previous match has been moved. There are other issues that can arise from not replacing missing teeth with dental implants and you should visit as soon as possible.

What Will My Implant Dentist Do?

A small titanium alloy body is placed in the area of the jaw where your tooth used to be, and then a structure that resembles a tooth both aesthetically and functionally is attached to this titanium alloy in order to replace the tooth.  

Complete implants are created using at least three separate components:

  • The implant body, which replaces the root
  • The implant abutment, which connects to the body and allows transition through the gum tissue
  • The implant crown, which is the shape and color of your natural tooth

In some cases, the body and abutment are just one piece, the abutment and crown are just one piece, or they are all separate pieces.
