Dental implants can have a positive effect on your overall oral health, not just the form and function of your smile. One of the negative side-effects of missing teeth is that the jawbone will begin to lose mass as the calcium and other nutrients are “resorbed” into the body. This can lead to a weaker jaw. Fortunately, Dr. Giauque can prevent this condition with dental implants.
Implants are made up of two different parts. One is the restoration, which is the crown, bridge or partial denture that fills in the space where the missing tooth is. The second part is the implant post, which is a small titanium screw that is surgically placed in your jawbone by our dentist and takes the place of the missing root. This post is biocompatible which means the jawbone can accept it and even be stimulated to grow, keeping the jawbone strong and healthy.
Dental implants are also a cost-effective restoration because, with proper care and hygiene, they can last you a lifetime. If you are interested in learning more about dental implants, give our practice a call today. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have!
