Unfortunately, severe tooth decay, gum disease or trauma can cause one or more of your teeth to fall out or need to be extracted by your dentist. So what are your options for replacing missing teeth? Depending on a number of different factors, you have quite a few dental replacement options. One of the most reliable and popular choices would be a dental implant.
Here at Hot Smile Dental, Susan K. Wilson, D.D.S., provides complete dental implant services. Make Dr. Wilson your number-one choice for dental implants in Columbus, OH.
Dental implants can replace one or more of your missing teeth after they have fallen out and have many advantages over other tooth replacement options. Since implants are actually attached to your upper or lower jaw bone, they promote the function of your jaw and can even stop your jaw from deteriorating. Dental implants also look and feel like real teeth, and you can have as little or as many as you need implanted into your jaw bone.
The process of placing dental implants takes several dental appointments, exams, and procedures to achieve the final result. But even though the entire process can take several months, you will be left with strong, long-lasting teeth by the end of the final procedure. As long as you take good care of your dental implants by regularly brushing, flossing, and keeping up with dental checkups, your new implant teeth can last a long time.
If you think dental implants could be the right solution for you, or you just want to learn more about our different dental implant options, feel free to give our Columbus, OH, office a call at 614-235 -5560. We will be more than happy to examine your mouth, discuss your oral health, and develop the best solution for you.
