If you have lost a tooth or had a tooth extracted, it is likely you are looking for a solution that will adequately replace the natural tooth that is missing. It is likely that you are tired of having to deal with all of the new problems that come up as a result of tooth loss, such as struggling to pronounce words properly and chew your food as you used to. Missing teeth also weakens the underlying bone where the tooth once was, and so acting as quickly as possible after a tooth has been lost or extracted is ideal when it comes to tooth replacement. Adjacent teeth can also move into the empty space, leading to jaw discomfort and even TMJ disorders. More and more, patients are choosing dental implant restorations as their optimal tooth replacement method. Our Jericho implant dentist, Dr. Elan Katz, has helped many patients restore their smiles with our amazingly lifelike dental implant restorations. Dental implants are known to be long lasting, and quite natural in both their appearance and their functionality. They are also an excellent option because they can replace the tooth you need to without negatively affecting any of the other teeth around it. Dental implant restorations are an in-depth process, but this is how you get the amazing results that they provide. Before a dental implant restoration can take place, Dr. Katz will need to go through a full examination of the current state of your teeth and mouth, and also consult with you about the process. In order for dental implants to be successful, you need to have healthy gums and sufficient underlying bone mass, and so our Jericho implant dentist may recommend some preliminary procedures like deep periodontal cleaning sessions or bone grafting procedures in order to make sure that you have the most hospitable environment fr a new implant. The implant is a small piece of metal that is put in place right in your jawbone, and over time it adjusts and becomes one with the bone that surrounds it. Once the foundation has been formed this way, our Jericho implant dentist will attach the replacement tooth, a customized dental crown.
