Dental implants at Advacned Petrie Dental can help restore your smile if you’re missing one or more teeth. Dr. Petrie will place one or more artificial titanium roots into your jawbone, which will support a replacement tooth or teeth.
Implants are a great way to improve the function and appearance of your smile, and they can also help prevent potential bite and joint problems. Plus, with dental implants, you don’t have to worry about your remaining teeth shifting to fill the space left by a missing tooth.
So why wait? Schedule an appointment with Dr. Petrie today and start enjoying the benefits of dental implants!
How The Dental Implants Process Works
The first step in the dental implants process is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Petrie. During your consultation, he will perform a thorough examination of your mouth and take X-rays to determine if you’re a good candidate for dental implants.
If you are a good candidate, Dr. Petrie will develop a customized treatment plan for you. The next step is to place the implant into your jawbone. This is done through a minor surgical procedure.
Once the implant has been placed, you will need to wait for it to fuse with your jawbone, which can take several months. Once the fusion process is complete, Dr. Petrie will attach a small connector post, called an abutment, to the top of the implant.
Finally, Dr. Petrie will place a natural-looking replacement tooth onto the abutment. And that’s it! You’re ready to enjoy your new smile.
Advantages Of Dental Implants
There are many advantages to choosing dental implants, including:
- Dental implants are a long-term solution for missing teeth. They can last a lifetime with proper care.
- Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth.
- Dental implants do not require special care. You can brush and floss them just like your natural teeth.
- Dental implants can help preserve your facial structure. Without teeth, the bone in your jaw can deteriorate.
- Dental implants can improve your chewing ability. With dental implants, you’ll be able to eat all of your favorite foods again.
- Dental implants can give you back your confidence. You’ll no longer have to worry about your teeth falling out or being embarrassed by gaps in your smile.
