Tooth loss can happen to anyone, regardless of age, nationality, background, or lifestyle. Whether you’re missing teeth due to dental trauma or gum disease, you have options for restorative treatment. Dental implants, by far, offer the most benefits for restoring lost teeth due to their unique composition and qualities. Implants closely resemble natural teeth and offer full tooth functionality. You can learn more about dental implant treatment from Dr. Mark Miller at Snow Park Dental, your “dental implant clinic near me” in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
What makes implants so unique? Implants mimic the structure of natural teeth by using a three-part system: a titanium rod (implant) which becomes your new tooth root, a metal abutment to hold your new tooth, and a dental crown, bridge, or dentures as your replacement teeth.
The implant will be surgically imbedded into your jaw to function like a tooth root. Over the next few months, this “root” will integrate into your bone system to support your replacement tooth. Once the root is firmly in place, Dr. Miller will attach a metal abutment on top to hold your new tooth. Finally, we’ll attach a dental crown, bridge, or dentures to the abutment to act as replacement teeth.
The only part of implants that people can see is the dental crown, bridge, or dentures, all custom-made to look and function like your natural teeth. The implant provides a solid, stable foundation for your new teeth, keeping them firmly in place when you talk, laugh, or chew.
Implants offer a permanent solution to tooth loss as they take the place of tooth roots. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime without needing replacement or repair. The implant fits perfectly within the gap left by missing teeth to comfortably and effectively support your new tooth or teeth. With dental implant treatment, you get:
Implants can restore the lifestyle you had before teeth went missing so that you can enjoy a higher quality of life in the future.
