Dental Implants Henderson NV
When you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants are an excellent way to restore the beauty of your smile and the strength of your bite. Joshua Ignatowicz, DMD is your local doctor who can help you to reclaim your self-confidence and self-esteem through dental implant surgery.
Dental implants are the standard of care when you have a missing tooth. They are the next best thing to your natural teeth and are made to last for many years. You may be a candidate for a dental implant if you fall into one or more of these categories:
• You have one or more missing teeth
• You have healthy bone and gum tissue
• You are unable to wear a traditional denture or bridge
The Benefits of Implants
Dental implants involve the placement of a titanium rod within your jaw bone. This rod serves as the root of the artificial tooth. The new tooth is strong, stays in place and is made to match your natural teeth. There are many more benefits of choosing a dental implant. For instance, an implant:
• Does not require the use of adhesives to stay in place
• Does not slip or make noise when you chew
• Does not decay or develop cavities
What to Expect After the Procedure
After your dental implant procedure, you will be able to return to eating your favorite foods, which is not the case after a root canal procedure or the placement of a temporary crown. Your jaw will heal and grow new bone, helping to keep the implant permanently in place. You will brush and floss around your new dental implant just like you care for the rest of your natural teeth.
