What your dentist in Salem, OR wants you to know
Are you missing teeth? If you are, you probably don’t smile as much as you used to. You may have lost your self-confidence. If you have been living with an incomplete smile, it’s time to think about dental implants. When you choose dental implants, you are choosing the most natural-looking tooth replacement available. Dr. Igor Sitnik at Sitnik Dental in Salem, OR wants to share how dental implants can complete your smile.
Dental implants are placed during a simple in-office procedure, usually requiring only local anesthetic. The implant screw is made of titanium, a biocompatible material that your bone can fuse with. After placement, your bone grows around the implant, locking it firmly in place. After the implant area has healed, Dr. Sitnik will cap the implant screw with a beautiful implant crown.
Whether you are missing just one tooth, or several teeth, dental implants can complete your smile. In addition to the natural, beautiful appearance of dental implants, there are many other benefits. Consider that dental implants are:
- Completely stable; they are a permanent part of your smile and won’t move around the way dental appliances can.
- Completely healthy; you brush and floss implants just like your natural teeth.
- Completely convenient; you never take implants out, unlike dental appliances.
Your dental implants also resist staining, and they will never decay. You can count on dental implants because they have a success rate of over 95 percent, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. That’s the highest of any surgical implant!
You can also use dental implants to provide a strong foundation for a denture, called an overdenture. The dental implants will help preserve bone and keep the denture firmly in place.
