Dental Implants are a great way to restore your smile and gain the confidence you always wanted to have with your smile. Dental implants are permanent and are a great solution if you have missing teeth. At Mason O Miner, DDS we work to ensure that your implants are right for you. Dr. Miner will help you to find the best method that works for your mouth to ensure the result makes you feel comfortable and satisfied with your dental implants.

The procedure for dental implants is common, effective and can likely be completed in one visit. Dental implants are placed in your jawbone which allows them to react with your natural bone. Then a connector, which is known as an abutment is placed on the top of your dental implant, which is meant to support your artificial teeth, known as crowns. The crowns are designed with the same shape and color characteristics as your regular teeth, so you can have a natural-looking smile.

Dental implants have become the preferred method for tooth replacement over the last two decades because they function like natural teeth. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, you should not wait to replace them. The longer you wait, the bone around your missing teeth will begin to deteriorate and can eventually cause several oral health issues such as other teeth beginning to shift or bite problems. If you have suffered from bone loss, we may recommend applying bone grafting prior to moving forward with dental implants.

Overall dental implants are a safe and efficient way to replace your missing teeth and restore your smile. Since they are the closest replacement that you can get to your regular teeth, they also allow you to function regularly by smiling, laughing, and eating your favorite foods all while not having to worry about your teeth.
