Have you lost one or more permanent teeth? Do you wish to restore your smile? To replace missing teeth, Dr. Bryce E. Justesen may recommend dental implants in Mesa, Arizona. A dental implant is made up of a titanium implant post and a custom-made dental restoration. The implant post is surgically placed in your jawbone by a specialist, where it acts as replacement tooth roots. After your jawbone has healed, our dentist will attach the dental restoration to the implant post.
Dental implants have many advantages to you and your smile. They look and feel like your natural teeth, so they improve the beauty of your smile. The implant post is designed to fuse with your jawbone, so your dental implant will become a permanent part of your smile. Dental implants are very durable, lasting for many years or even a lifetime. Unlike dental bridges, dental implants do not require tooth reduction. Because of this, your long-term oral health is improved. Implants have several benefits over dentures. Dentures can move and slip in the mouth, making eating and speaking difficult. Because dental implants are a permanent part of your smile, you can eat and speak with ease.
