Not every tooth in your mouth will last you a lifetime, and when it’s time to replace one or more of them, you can count on the practice of Dr. Adam L. Bear for the expert placement of our 11772 dental implants.
Many people are familiar with the more traditional fixed bridges and partial removable dentures, which were once the only options available for restoring complete teeth. Even when implants first became available, and they’ve been around for several decades, they were too expensive for most people to afford. The good news is that times have changed, and our 11772 dental implants are well within the means of most of our patients. And when you consider their longevity, their cost per year is a remarkable bargain. With proper maintenance, they can last for life. There are three stages of implants. First there is the surgical procedure of putting a titanium post in your jaw, which serves the role of a root. Over the course of a few months, your jaw tissue grows around the post. Eventually, there is a complete fusion of the two. A small healing post is then added. Ultimately, it will be replaced by a support piece that further stabilizes the tooth that is yet to come. The final portion of our 11772 dental implants is the tooth-colored crown that is made from impressions and that will be cemented to the post and held in securely with the support piece. Simply put, there is no loss of material from your other teeth, you never have to use messy adhesives, and your new tooth looks, feels, and performs like a natural tooth. What could be better?
