Replacing Tooth Loss with Dental Implants

Posted .

Are you looking for ways to restore your teeth after dental trauma or tooth decay? If so, we are happy to offer several options. After losing a tooth, you can still have a beautiful smile thanks to cosmetic and restorative dentistry. In particular, dental implants can provide long-term results that are beautiful and very popular among many patients. We invite you to learn more about dental implants and their placement process below.

Dental implants are known to provide long-term restoration following the loss of a tooth or several teeth. Addressing tooth loss is very important to your smile since it can affect the jawbone and result in bone loss if the bone has lost the anchor of the tooth root. Placing a dental implant serves the same function of the tooth root, enabling your jawbone to maintain its strength so that you can have a healthy smile.

Titanium is a highly useful material for dental implants since it is highly compatible with the body and begins to fuse with your jaw after it is placed so that your new tooth can have a very strong anchor that enables the implant to last as long as a lifetime. While the healing process takes place, you may need to eat foods that are soft to give your mouth a break.

Following the full restoration of your mouth, our dentistss can offer a custom-made dental crown to complete the implant so that the new tooth can look like a natural part of your smile.

If you would like to speak with Dr. Daniel Merrill or Dr. Stephanie Merrill about receiving dental implants in West Chester, Ohio, we invite you to contact Merrill Dental today at 513-779-7711 to schedule a consultation.
