Dental Implant Restoration
Despite our best efforts, occasionally it is necessary to remove a damaged or infected tooth. While extractions are not ideal and we always do our best to save your natural teeth, if you require tooth replacement after an extraction, we can help.
Dr. Beth Kreider can provide you with the best tooth replacement options available. Depending on your health and lifestyle, your solution of choice may be dental implants. Dental implants are the tooth replacement therapy that is most like your natural tooth. Implants are attractive, stable, and completely functional after healing.
Caring for dental implants is easy because they can be brushed and flossed just like your natural teeth. As long as you practice impeccable hygiene habits and maintain your regular dental visits, your dental implant should last a long time.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant replaces a missing tooth. It consists of several parts including the implant, which mimics your tooth’s root. Your implant will be surgically placed by one of our trusted oral surgeons. The procedure is highly successful and most patients report very little pain during recovery.
Once your natural bone grows around your implant and integrates with your jawbone, Dr. Kreider will place a dental crown on top of your implant to provide not only an aesthetic solution for your smile, but also a stable chewing surface.
Your implant crown will be custom made to match the rest of your teeth so that your implant will not be noticeable to others. It will match the color and shape of your teeth, giving you the confidence to smile without worry.
Why Are Dental Implants a Good Option?
Dental implants not only replace your missing tooth, but also provide longevity to your smile by helping to preserve your bone. Your natural teeth are imbedded in your jawbone and provide stability. When you lose a tooth, your bone may begin to recede. A dental implant anchors to your bone, much like your natural tooth, and can slow down or stop the erosion of your bone.
Can Anyone Have Dental Implants?
Since each patient is different, a full exam by Dr. Beth Kreider can determine all of your tooth replacement options. She can then recommend the ones that will provide you the most success.
Most of our patients are healthy enough for dental implants. On occasion, something may make dental implants a less desirable choice for you. If that happens, do not worry. Dr. Kreider will still be able to help restore your smile.
