Why You Should Try Dental Implants

Losing a tooth can severely impact your confidence and may affect your smile by causing you issues in the long run. Dental implants are one of the top forms of tooth replacement and can help complete your smile as well as strengthen your teeth in the long run. Dr. James Petraitis and Dr. Alexis Pelekanos-Gonzalez at Alcoma Dental Associates in Verona, PA, are here to help inform you about how dental implants can benefit you.

How Dental Implants Can Help You

When you lose a tooth, your smile may feel incomplete, and you may find yourself avoiding certain foods that you once enjoyed. However, you can make your smile whole again with dental implants and stop avoiding the things you once enjoyed. Dental implants from your dentist in Verona, PA, are designed to look totally natural. No one will ever know you lost a tooth to begin with unless you tell them.

The most important part of the dental implant is the titanium post that is fused into your gums and jawbone. This post is used to replace the tooth root that was once there. This post will help stimulate your gums and stop your jawbone from disintegrating and causing facial sagging in your future.

Once your gums heal and the post is fully fused, the implant is then topped with a dental crown that is custom-made to match your smile. A mold of your smile is created and a dental crown is then made to match your teeth in shape and size. This crown can also be color-matched to the rest of your teeth and will blend in perfectly!
