We’ve talked a lot about the array of benefits offered by dental implants. We’ve discussed how implant technology allows your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, to replace several missing teeth. Dental implants even provide a permanent alternative to dentures. In today’s blog, your Livingston dentists want to remind patients that dental implants also offer quality single tooth replacement.
Protect Your Smile
A dental implant is unique in that the human body responds to an implant the same way it would a natural tooth. This means the body continues to supply vital nutrients, including calcium and phosphorus, to the bone surrounding the implant. These nutrients promote bone growth, preventing the loss of bone density that often accompanies a missing tooth. If left untreated, a missing tooth endangers the stability of surrounding teeth, threatening your appearance and dental health.
Benefits of a Dental Implant
Bone tissue literally bonds with the dental implant, providing a secure restoration. In addition, your Livingston dentists use durable, life-like crowns to replace your tooth. Natural looking and strong, dental implants keep your smile healthy and beautiful.
The Implant Process
At The Silverstrom Group, we understand the value of your time. Between work and family, who has time for multiple office visits and procedures? This is why Drs. David and Gary Silverstrom use onsite labs and employ a full staff of dental professionals to ensure every step of the implant process can be completed in one location. In fact, some implant procedures can be completed in a single day. The first step involves placing a special titanium post into the socket of the missing tooth. Once the post is in place and the bone tissue begins to bond with it, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will put an abutment on top of the post. The abutment allows Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom to place you custom-made crown onto the implant. At this point, you will have an esthetically pleasing restoration that can last a lifetime.
