When you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you may want to get dental implants. Dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement solution at our office because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. If you want to get dental implants in Greenlawn, we hope you will visit us at our dental practice Roger Curtiss, DDS where you can see our implant dentist, Dr. Roger D. Curtiss for a consultation.
When a patient comes in to our dental practice wanting to get dental implants in Greenlawn, we will ask that you come to see us for a consultation visit. We will address all your questions and concerns. We may also ask that you have a dental/radiographic exam and full health history taken to help ensure that you are a good candidate for the procedure. Once it is determined that dental implants will work well for you, our dentist will surgically insert a titanium dental implant root into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There will then be a healing period of several months during which time the jawbone will completely heal from the surgery, and the dental implant roots will fuse to the jawbone. Once our dentist determines that the healing time is completed, he will then create a porcelain crown which will perfectly color-match the adjacent teeth. The porcelain crown will then be permanently attached to the top of the dental implant root and your dental implant will be complete. You can now eat, smile and speak in total confidence. In order to make sure that your dental implant lasts for a lifetime, you will want to follow a great at-home teeth cleaning regimen, and come into our dental practice for periodic dental cleanings.
