Replace missing teeth with Metal-free dental implants
Do you avoid smiling, laughing, and socializing with other people because of one or more missing teeth? Have you found that by not replacing your missing teeth, you are experiencing the shifting of the remaining teeth in the dental arch? Are you embarrassed by how you look and how difficult it is to chew and speak properly? Tooth replacement is key to ensuring a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile. At Chase Inspired Dentistry of Draper, Utah, patients can ask about solutions such as dental implants to replace one or more teeth in the smile.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a method of replacing missing teeth with a permanent restoration. At our office, we offer non-metal implants for patients to consider. These ceramic restorations are highly desirable because they are more natural-looking and are appropriate for patients who might have allergies to certain metals. During surgery, these posts are placed into the jaw’s bone to act as a tooth root replacement. The abutment of the post above the gumline is then restored with a crown, bridge, or denture—depending on how many teeth are being replaced.
Why choose dental implants?
Some of the benefits of dental implants include:
- Restored ability to eat and speak
- Restored confidence and self-esteem
- Prevention of bone loss in the jaw
- Maintaining natural bone for a youthful look
- Longevity of the final restoration
- Stabilization of dentures
- Fast and lasting restoration of a beautiful smile
How do I care for dental implants?
Once dental implants are placed and restored, they function just like natural teeth—and should be cared for in the same way with brushing, flossing, and routine dental cleanings and evaluations every six months.
