With today's technology, surgical dental implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth. Dental implants help strengthen your jawbone after an extraction, restore your ability to bite, and give you an aesthetically beautiful restoration that's virtually indistinguishable from your real teeth.
Implants are made of a biocompatible titanium, which means they actually fuse with your bone as they heal. The implant integrates into your jaw to give Amherst, NH dentist Dr. Edwards a secure foundation to build your restoration upon. It also helps prevent bone reabsorption, which can be a problem after an extraction and can result in a sunken appearance to your mouth.
Procedures Using Dental Implants
Implants can support a variety of restorations, including crowns, implant-supported bridges, or even anchors for full removable dentures. Whether you need a single tooth restored or a complete smile makeover, implants are a very successful and useful tool for any cosmetic dentistry procedure.
Once your dental implant is healed and the crown or bridge is placed, it requires no special care. Just make sure to practice good daily brushing and flossing habits and schedule regular examinations and cleanings at our Amherst dental office. Many patients love the ease and beauty of these popular restorations.
