While you may be outstanding at keeping up with your at-home dental cleaning as well as attending your routine checkups, it is our job to determine whether or not a tooth can be saved–despite all your efforts to maintain proper oral health. Be it due to an unexpected accident, tooth decay, or you require an extraction, here at Seacoast Dental Associates, we proudly offer dental implants. This is a permanent restorative procedure designed to return your smile to its natural, beautiful self.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a small titanium post shaped like a screw that is designed to replace the missing tooth root. Once the post has been implanted, a porcelain crown is placed over it that is designed to look and function just like your natural tooth. A very minor surgical procedure takes place to insert the post into the jawbone and replace the missing tooth, and is then left alone to fully heal. During the healing process, the bone is actually fused to the implant. Once healed, the crown designed to match your natural teeth is attached.
