Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth, and they can last a lifetime with proper oral care. The durability of dental implants is a major advantage, and makes them a good solution for patients missing one or more teeth. Since they are surgically inserted into your jawbone and they are made to mimic a tooth root, they look and feel natural, and you won’t have to worry about removing them to eat or sleep. If you have missing teeth and are looking for an ideal replacement solution, call Dr. Zhang at Mendota Springs Dentistry today!
The Dental Implant Process
Dr. Zhang is proud to be a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) with the specific training and skill to successfully restore patients’ smiles with dental implants. Once Dr. Zhang determines that you are a good candidate for dental implants, we will refer you to a specialist who works closely with our office to place your implant.
During this appointment, a small, titanium post will be surgically inserted into your jawbone and you will be given a temporary crown until your jawbone heals. At your next appointment with Dr. Zhang, a custom, permanent crown will be placed. Your smile will be beautifully restored with a long-lasting, natural-looking replacement tooth.
Are Implants Right for Me?
Since dental implants are inserted into your mouth, a patient must have sufficient jawbone and healthy gums in order to receive a dental implant. During a consultation, Dr. Zhang will thoroughly assess your dental health to determine whether dental implants are the right restorative option for you. If you are missing teeth and are looking for a permanent solution, call Mendota Springs Dentistry at (608) 237-6080 to set up a consultation today!
