Dental implants in Merrimac
Missing teeth can be embarrassing and damaging to a person’s self confidence. That’s why dental implants have made a difference in cosmetic dentistry by allowing patients to replace their missing teeth with an artificial one that looks just as real as their natural teeth. At Amesbury Family Dental, we perform dental implants in Merrimac for patients who want to replace their missing teeth.
Dental implants are made from titanium and are tiny posts. They are surgically implanted into the bone of the jaw, which turns them into a strong and durable anchor for the artificial tooth to be placed on top of. Implants are actually stronger than a natural tooth’s root, making them long lasting and perfect for this type of surgery. Because of their durability and strength, the implant will never require a root canal or filling. Dental implants in Merrimac are also ideal for maintaining the shape of the jaw bone, since missing teeth can warp the bone, causing a sunken in look that harms the facial aesthetics. Other options for missing teeth include dentures and bridges. Dentures are removable replacements that come in either partial or full sizes. They help to prevent the other teeth in the mouth from changing position and full dentures are suitable for those who have lost most or all of their teeth. Dentures can help improve speech and chewing and allow wearers to eat more of the foods they enjoy.
The procedure for dental implants in Merrimac takes about 2 to 3 months. After receiving a comprehensive exam to determine if you are a good candidate for implants, we will then schedule the actual surgery. The surgery may take place either in our offices or at a local hospital. Once the posts are implanted, a healing period of one to two months takes place where the posts fuse with the bone in the jaw. During this period the patient may wear a partial denture and will need to eat soft foods. Once it is completely healed, the artificial tooth is then placed atop the implant and the patient can go back to their regular eating habits.
