Millions of Americans are missing at least one of their teeth. Because of this, they don’t smile very often. If you are missing one of your teeth and wondering what options you might have, a dental implant from Chesterfield Smile Design may be for you.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically implanted into your jaw. An artificial tooth goes on top of the post. Once they are in place, they look and function like natural teeth.
Modern implants have been around for about fifty years. They used to be uncommon, but as the technology improved they’ve become part of mainstream dentistry. With today’s digital technology, dental implants can be placed in the patient’s jaw with nearly one hundred percent accuracy.
One caveat: you need to have enough bone mass to support the implant. Even if you don’t, there is a solution: bone grafting can give you enough.
Most patients who receive a dental implant find that they are stable, and an excellent replacement for their natural tooth. Implants can also be used to anchor dentures. Ask us about All-on-4 Implant Supported Dentures.
