Dental implants might be a good option for you if you have one or more missing teeth and want to avoid getting dentures. You’ll need to have the following to be a viable candidate for dental implants:
Dental implants offer exceptional comfort and convenience compared to other tooth replacement options, such as dentures. You don’t have to worry about them slipping out of place or being highly noticeable.
These implants are also healthier for your jawbone since they help it maintain its natural structure.
Dr. Yeung begins this process by placing dental implants in your jawbone and taking imprints of your teeth to have replacement teeth made.
After that step, you’ll wear a temporary crown while your jawbone heals and fuses with the dental implant. Once your jawbone heals, Dr. Yeung attaches an abutment to the dental implant and secures your artificial tooth in place.
Once your dental implants are in place, they’ll function just like natural teeth. You don’t have to avoid certain foods or worry about your implants sliding out of place or coming out.
Just make sure you brush them along with your natural teeth to keep them in good condition and lower your risk of dental problems.
