Did you lose your tooth recently? Looking for a new tooth to replace the one you lost is probably at the top of your to-do list. Consider getting dental implants in Sequim, WA, from your dentist, Dr. Richard Zbaraschuk, of Zbaraschuk Dental Care.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a type of dental restoration where your dentist surgically implants your new tooth into your jaw bone. The dental implant has a titanium root that sits inside your jaw bone to support the tooth. Above your gums, the dental crown of your dental implants sits to replace the visible portion of your tooth. You can replace a single lost tooth or your full teeth arch with dental implants.
There are numerous benefits of choosing dental implants such as:
- They are secure
- They look like your natural teeth
- They won't restrict your diet
- They are easy to care for
- They are long-lasting
- They let you bite and chew properly
- They preserve your jawbone mass
- They restore your confidence
Dental Implants Installation
If you decide to get dental implants in Sequim, WA, you don't need to be scared of the procedure. Your dentist will administer an anesthetic during the surgical installation of the dental implants so that you won't feel discomfort. After installing the dental implant root, it's not ready for use yet. Your dentist will cover it with temporary crowns during this recovery period. This period can last up to six months and it allows the dental implant root to fuse with your jaw bone to secure it in place.
After you've completed the recovery place, you'll need another dental appointment to get your permanent crowns. If you're replacing more than one tooth, a dental bridge or implants supported dentures may be appropriate.
If you've just lost a tooth, you can still save your smile. With dental implants in Sequim, WA, from your dentist, Dr. Zbaraschuk, you can forget you ever lost a tooth.
