Dental implants offer people in need of tooth replacement with the best of both worlds. Not only do they get a new crown to replace the missing tooth, but a new root as well. In addition to reinforcing and strengthening the crown in its place, without the need for bridges or support from the surrounding teeth, implants also help to preserve density and bone health in the gums, which is critical for oral and general health.
Dental Implants in Springville
Dentists at Hobble Creek Dental Care, in Springville, UT, offer a range of cosmetic dentistry services for patients in need of anything from professional teeth whitening to a new set of teeth. Adults in good general health with sufficient healthy bone tissue in the gums are usually good candidates for implants. Once it is placed in the jaw, the implant gradually fuses with the surrounding bone tissue, which anchors it in place. After it has healed, an abutment is put in place, which secures the replacement crown to the implant.
In addition to providing a durable, permanent solution that most accurately resembles the structure of a natural tooth, implants offer versatility in tooth replacement options. Just a few implants can support a set of full or partial dentures or a bridge. Once they have healed, implants are cared for in much the same way as natural teeth, although patients must be willing to commit to rigorous oral hygiene care and follow-up dental visits.
