If you are thinking about getting dental implants, we hope you will visit us at our dental and implant practice, Roger Curtiss, DDS. Our expert and highly trained dentist, Dr. Roger Curtiss, can provide you with dental implants in Greenlawn which will be well placed, attractive, and fully functional.
If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, dental implants are a great treatment option. This is because they look, feel, and function just like regular teeth. When you have a gap left by a missing tooth, you can develop additional dental problems which can lead to further tooth loss. Your jawbone can also begin to atrophy due to the fact that there is a missing tooth root. For these reasons alone, you may want to get dental implants in Greenlawn because they solve these problems. Dental implants are also a permanent way to have your missing teeth replaced. If well taken care of with regular dental cleanings and with a great at-home teeth cleaning regimen, your dental implants should last you for a lifetime. Dental implants can be used as individual teeth, or to hold dentures securely in place. If you come to us to get dental implants, our dentist will request that you have a dental/radiographic exam, and have a health history taken, so that he can properly determine whether or not you are a good candidate for this type of treatment. Will be happy to answer all questions you have about dental implants at that time. The entire dental implant process takes many months. After the oral surgery during which the dental implant roots are inserted into the jawbone, there is a healing period of several months during which time the jawbone will heal and the dental implants will fuse to the jawbone. Our dentist will then create a porcelain crown to serve as the tooth portion of the implant.
