Losing your natural tooth is never fun. Besides marring your appearance, that unsightly gap affects your oral functionality, including how you speak and chew. That’s not all. A gap between teeth is likely to trap food debris, encouraging the growth of gum infections and cavities.
Enough of the missing teeth problems — it’s time to table a solution. At Dhir Dentistry, we offer natural-looking dental implants to replace your lost teeth. Dental implants are designed like natural teeth, so you will chew, speak, and look as if you have 100% natural teeth!
Dental implants are versatile enough to replace one, several, or all missing teeth. The implant is designed to take the position of your natural tooth root; that’s why the final fit is stable and natural. In an outpatient procedure, the implant is a biocompatible titanium screw inserted deep into your jaw bone.
While the procedure itself is standard and should cause no worry, it requires ample planning and skills. Not any dentist can insert an implant. It requires the experience and skills of a dentist like Dr. Sanjay Dhir to surgically insert an implant in your jaw precisely. Inserting an implant shouldn’t affect the surrounding teeth; neither should it be too close to a nerve.
Once the implant is in place, we give it a few months for healing. During this time, the jawbone grows around the implant for a stable anchorage. Next, we install an abutment (connector) and finally place a crown, bridge, or denture, depending on the number of teeth missing.
Once Dr. Dhir installs an implant, no one will know you had a lost tooth. An implant feels and looks like your natural teeth. It’s not just the looks — an implant functions like your natural tooth. No wonder it’s referred to as the “gold standard” of replacing teeth. The functional benefits of dental implants include:
