Our dentist are specialists in cosmetic surgery and are capable of offering options for individuals that are missing a tooth. A missing tooth causes a gap that can cause other teeth to shift and bacteria to affect the gum. To prevent teeth from shifting and to prevent gum infection the gap needs to be filled. The tooth gap may be filled with a crown and a bridge or with a dental implant. A crown and bridge is a procedure that requires one or two adjacent teeth that can anchor the bridge in place. This process will require a crown to be placed on the anchor teeth. When a crown is placed the anchoring, teeth are filed down to make room for the crown. Individuals that want to keep their teeth intact may want to learn more about dental implants. A dental implant does not require adjacent teeth to act as anchors, however, a dental implant procedure will require healthy gums and jaw bones. A dental implant consists of three parts. The part that requires the most attention and time is the dental implant. The dental implant is titanium based and are implanted to the jaw bone. Once the implant is placed, it may take up to nine months for the bone and implant to bond through a process known as osseointegration. Once the implant is integrated, an abutment is placed. The abutment connects the implant and the crown. The crown is the shining pearl that everyone gets to see and once it is placed, it will conclude the dental implant procedure. When gums and jaw bones have degraded, an oral surgery may be required before a dental implant is placed.
