Have you recently lost one or more teeth? If so, you may be a candidate for dental implants.

A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth root that's made out of a titanium alloy. Once the implant fuses to your jawbone, Dr. Langellier will place an abutment and crown over top.

Together, the crown, abutment, and implant give you the look and function of a natural tooth. The result is a healthier, more attractive smile.

Advantages of Dental Implants

One of the benefits of dental implants is that you're able to eat all your favorite foods. Unlike dentures, you'll never have to worry about your dental implant slipping. Dental implants fuse to your jawbone. This provides the ultimate stability for your new tooth replacement.

Even the best-fitting dentures will slip on occasion when you laugh, cough, or sneeze. The only solution when you're in public is to gently bite down and swallow. This helps guide the dentures back into place.

The good news is that patients with dental implants never have to deal with the hassle. Instead, they're able to eat, smile, and laugh with confidence.

Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth!

How to Care For Dental Implants

Continue practicing good dental hygiene at home. This means brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day. Sticking to this routine will help you avoid plaque buildup and the oral health issues it causes.

We also recommend that you continue seeing Dr. Langellier for preventive dental care. He'll be able to examine your dental implants during your routine checkup to ensure they stay in excellent condition.
