In the case of a patient who is missing one or more permanent teeth, Dr. Manveen Atwal, DDS may recommend a dental implant in Gainesville, Florida. A dental implant is a restoration that replaces both the crown and root of the tooth. The dental implant post, which is placed in the jawbone by a specialist, becomes a permanent part of your smile. The dental restoration, which is usually a dental crown, is attached to the dental implant post to replace the missing tooth.
Dental implants have many advantages to you and your smile. They can improve your appearance because they are designed to look and feel just like your natural teeth. Because the dental implant post fuses with your jawbone, your dental implant will become a permanent part of your smile. Dental implants can allow you to speak properly once again. Unlike some other restorations, you won’t have to worry about your new tooth or teeth slipping. Implants also allow you to eat with confidence and comfort. Dental implants are very durable, so they will last for many years, or even a lifetime.
