Dental Implant Facts

Posted .

Do you have a missing tooth? If so, it’s time to replace it with a dental implant! Dental implants provide strong and sturdy results and they can give you the smile you need to live life comfortably! To help you know a little more, Dr. Jerry Butler and our dental team are happy to share some facts about dental implants in Boone, North Carolina.

A dental implant replaces your tooth as well as its roots. It has a titanium post, an abutment, and a dental crown. First, the titanium post will be implanted into the bone socket of your missing tooth. After the bone has secured the post in place, your dentist will attach an abutment to that post. Then, he will create a dental crown for that abutment and will cement it in place when it is ready.

A dental implant can help you in many ways. It can improve your appearance, advance your speech, boost your confidence, make eating easier, and progress your oral health. It also offers reliable results because it is permanent.

Dental implants are also easy to clean. All you need to do is care for it like your other teeth: brush it twice a day, floss it once a day, and visit your dentist every six months.
