If you have one or several missing teeth that need to be replaced, you may be thinking about getting dental implants. At our dental practice, Gauri Savant DDS, our expert Uptown dentist, Dr. Gauri Savant, will be able to provide you with well-placed and attractive dental implants.
If you have a gap left by a missing tooth, it is important that you have this tooth replaced by some method. Dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement method at our dental practice because they look, feel, and function just like regular teeth. Additionally, dental implants will play two important functions in your mouth, aside from replacing your missing teeth. First of all, they will keep adjacent teeth from trying to move over to fill in the gap left by the missing teeth. Secondly, the titanium dental implant root will replace the root of the missing tooth. This means that your jawbone will not atrophy due to the fact that there is a missing tooth root, and your face will not have its appearance age due to the atrophying jawbone. When patients come to see our Uptown dentist to get dental implants, our dentist will first need to see if you are a good candidate for the procedure. It is important that your jawbone is thick enough and healthy enough to withstand the dental implant procedure. Once it is determined that your jawbone is in good health, and is thick enough to hold the dental implants, our dentist will surgically insert one dental implant into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. After a healing period of several months, a beautiful porcelain crown will be attached to the top of the dental implant, and your dental implant will be complete. You will be able to once again eat, smile, and speak with total confidence, and in total comfort.
