Do you have big plans with family and friends for the upcoming holidays? It’s a festive time of year ahead of us that usually involves a few photos. Is your smile camera ready? Or are you hiding it lately because of a compromised tooth? If you have a tooth that is failing or already missing, Herndon dental implants may be able to restore your smile just in time for you to wow your family for the holidays!
How Does a Dental Implant Restore My Smile?
Dental implants are capable of replacing one or multiple missing teeth, so even if you are struggling with more than one tooth there are options for you.
If you are replacing a single tooth, the implant is placed into your jawbone during a fairly simple surgical procedure. The implant is made of titanium, which will naturally fuse with your bone because it is biocompatible. It becomes part of your dental anatomy, while also creating a stable foundation for your new tooth.
A porcelain crown designed to match and complement your smile is the icing on the cake. It is placed permanently after your implant is fully integrated, which takes around 3 to 6 months. In some cases though, a temporary tooth is placed to complete your smile during the healing process.
Restoring Multiple Teeth
If you are replacing multiple teeth, a few implants might be used to anchor a dental bridge, partial, or denture.
Herndon implant supported dentures offer denture wearers a stable and secure fit so they don’t have to worry about movement or slippage when they’re talking or eating causing embarrassing situations during the holidays.
The Additional Benefits of Choosing Dental Implants
Besides restoring your smile, function, and confidence, there are a number of other benefits that dental implants offer.
• They protect your oral health by replacing both your root and your tooth. This protects the health of your jawbone and neighboring teeth.
• They offer excellent longevity because they have the potential to last for a lifetime.
• Single implants provide the aesthetics and function of a natural tooth
