Do you have missing teeth that need to be replaced? If so, you will want to come to our dental practice to see if you are a good candidate for dental implants. If you have missing teeth, you want to make sure that you have them replaced so that adjacent teeth will not try to move into the area left by the missing teeth; this will cause serious orthodontic problems. An additional benefit of getting dental implants to replace the missing teeth is that the dental implant roots will serve to keep your jawbone healthy, as well as keep it from atrophying. This means that your youthful facial appearance will be able to be maintained. At our dental practice, Pine Ridge Dental, patients come to us for Duanesburg dental implants on a regular basis.
At our dental office our two expert and highly trained dentists are Dr. Don P. Evans and Dr. Rebecca S. Evans. If you come to our dental office wanting to get Duanesburg dental implants, our dentist will first need to examine your jawbone to make sure it is healthy enough and thick enough to hold the dental implant roots. Once this is determined to be the case, our dentist will be able to surgically insert a titanium dental implant root into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Afterwards, there will be a healing period of several months during which time the jawbone completely heals and the dental implant roots will fully fuse to the jawbone.
Once the Duanesburg dental implants have completely fused to your jawbone, our dentist will then permanently attach a porcelain crown to the top portion of each dental implant. At this point, your dental implants will be complete and you will be able to smile and speak again with total confidence. You will also be able to eat anything you want without ever having to worry that the dental implants will slip or will cause you any type of mouth pain. Dental implants look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. If well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and with periodic teeth cleanings at our dental practice, there is no reason why your dental implants should not last you for a lifetime.
