Dental Implants: Missing Teeth Solution
Do you have one or more missing teeth? Are you self-conscious about your smile? If you have one or more missing teeth, Dr. Jason McDowell of Wayzata Dental wants to provide you with a solution: dental implants.
Dental implants are provided to our patients who have one or more missing teeth due to tooth trauma or dental hygiene mistakes. Tooth trauma is obviously something that is beyond your control. Likewise, we can all make dental hygiene mistakes, while cavities can often go unnoticed if you aren’t seeing a dentist regularly.
In these instances, Dr. McDowell can provide you with one or more dental implants to completely alleviate these problems.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant consists of an artificially created tooth root. This root is made of durable titanium, and it serves as the base for a crown. At Wayzata Dental, our dentist uses natural-looking crowns that have the same aesthetic qualities as your original teeth.
Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone so they will secure your crown, bridge, or denture firmly in place. Implants can also be used to secure a denture or bridge, and, therefore, they are very versatile.
How Dental Implants are Created
At the first appointment, your artificial titanium root will be inserted into your jaw. One of our dental technicians will create your crown, denture, or bridge. Your crown, denture, or bridge will then be applied to your artificial root, giving you a perfectly, natural-looking tooth.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
There are a variety of added benefits of dental crowns. These benefits include:
- They are unnoticeable
- They will allow you to talk, eat, and smile with confidence
Thus, it can be seen that dental implants are a wonderful way to remedy your smile. Your new teeth will look perfectly natural, and you will never even feel as if you were ever missing teeth.
At Wayzata Dental, we will perform your oral surgery procedure quickly and efficiently using only the highest quality sedation techniques. You will most likely undergo oral sedation during the procedure, so that you can experience an anxiety-free appointment.
We pride ourselves on having created a practice that puts our patients and their families first. We dedicate ourselves to providing our patients with the highest quality service and a personal investment in their dental needs. In addition, our practice is small, so you will get the individual attention you deserve.
