If you suffer from missing teeth, talk to your dentist about dental implants. Dental implants provide many advantages when it comes to completing your smile.
In a nutshell, dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements for any or all of your missing teeth. The dental implant post is surgically placed inside the jawbone of your missing tooth. This is important because the post acts as the root of your implant tooth offering support to make sure your implant will be stable. Once the post is in place, Dr. Ken Killpack will recommend a healing period to allow your jaw bone to connect with the post. Once the healing period is over, your implant will be added and complete.
Dental implants appear as your natural tooth and are custom made to fit your smile. Some advantages to receiving dental implants include:
• Improved appearance
• Speech improvement
• Eating easier
• Self-esteem boost
