How Can Dental Implants Help?
If you have gaps in your smile, it could affect more than just your appearance and self-confidence. Gaps can cause your teeth to shift and your jawbone to atrophy, causing issues with your bite and even causing sagging facial skin or premature aging in some cases. Luckily, your Ultimate Dental Studio dentist in Port Orange, FL can help you fill in your gaps to look and feel great with dental implants.
What is a dental implant?
Dental implants replace a missing tooth and its root, permanently anchoring into the jawbone underneath your gap to integrate into your smile. Their design and permanence set them apart from traditional tooth replacement options like bridges or dentures. An implant has three main parts: a fixture, an abutment, and a prosthetic. Your dentist implants the fixture directly into the jawbone, allowing the bone to grow around the fixture as the implant site heals to hold it in place. The prosthetic is made from porcelain and looks like a natural tooth. It fits over the fixture to replace the missing tooth. The abutment holds these two parts together and allows your dentist to remove or replace the prosthetic if need be.
How much are dental implants?
At the Ultimate Dental Studio, dental implants may be more affordable than you think. Very reasonable financing options are available for most patients. With proper care and maintenance dental implants can give you a lifetime of improved appearance, function, and confidence.
