Millions of Americans are missing one or more of their teeth. That’s something that would make anyone self-conscious. If you have lost a tooth because of an injury or disease, a dental implant from Five Star Dental Care in Valrico can restore your smile.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically implanted into your jaw. An artificial tooth goes on top of the post. Once they are in place, they look and function like natural teeth.
Modern implants have been around for about fifty years. They used to be uncommon, but today they are considered part of mainstream dentistry. With today’s digital technology, dental implants can be placed in the patient’s jaw with nearly one hundred percent accuracy.
Not everyone is a viable candidate for a dental implant, because you need to have enough bone mass to support one. Even if you don’t, there is a solution: bone grafting can give you enough.
Most patients who receive a dental implant find that they are stable, and an excellent replacement for their natural tooth. Implants can also be used to anchor dentures.
Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant can transform your life. To find out more, call Five Star Dental Care in Valrico. We also provide cosmetic dentistry, including porcelain veneers, and clear braces from Invisalign. Schedule a consultation with us today.
