At Acre Wood Dental, we understand that losing a tooth can have a major impact on the way you view yourself and your ability to live a fully functional life. Not only can self-esteem be damaged, but you can quickly begin experiencing difficulty with eating, chewing, and speaking. To ensure your smile is restored to optimal health, we offer dental implants. Dental implants are a revolutionary approach to replacing one or more teeth. Dr. Johnson, Dr. Nguyen, Dr. Spindle, Dr. Smith and Dr. Olzack will generally follow these measures to complete your dental implant:
- First, our dentists will surgically implant a small metal post, generally made of titanium, into your jawbone. These metal posts will act as your new tooth roots.
- Your gums and jaw are allowed to heal, which also provides time for your natural bone tissue to fuse to the metal posts. This process allows for extra strength and stability.
- Once the healing process is complete, we will attach an abutment to the post, which will be used as a base for your new tooth.
- Your new tooth, generally a crown, bridge, or denture, will be attached on top.
