We Are Your Dental Implant Specialists In Springfield
Created on May 30, 2016
Sometimes, teeth are lost due to an accident or a sports injury. In rare cases, teeth are absent at birth. It’s more common, however, that teeth are lost because of a lifetime of poor dental habits which result in tooth decay, infection and gum disease. The truth is, painful, missing teeth can affect the quality of your life.
We specialize in putting a smile back on your face and offer a more permanent, long-term solution to missing teeth. We can give you back a huge part of your life, restore your self-confidence and put your dental worries to rest. Consider dental implants at Taylor Street Dental and restore your smile – dental implants are the closest thing to your natural teeth.
How do they work?
A dental implant begins with a titanium post (that functions like your tooth root) that is surgically positioned into your jawbone beneath the gum line. The post fuses with your bone and allows the replacement tooth to be mounted. By the time your custom-made crown is placed over the post, it has become a sturdy foundation. Dental implants can’t come loose like dentures can and they don’t have to be anchored to other teeth like bridges. They are the perfect solution as a replacement for old crowns, bridges and embarrassing slipping dentures.
Would you be a good candidate for dental implants?
You must have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. If your bone is too thin or soft, you may require a bone graft. At your initial consultation, we will take x-rays, discuss your dental goals with you, and explain everything you need to know about dental implants.
Dental implants look, function and feel like real teeth, but they do not decay. You must take good care of them, however, by flossing and brushing and keeping current on your twice-a-year dental visits. If you would you like to learn more, call, today, to schedule a consultation. We look forward to meeting with you and discussing this amazing dental procedure: (413) 781-7645.
