Dental Implants in Eastside Albuquerque, NM
These days, replacing a missing tooth doesn’t have to be stressful or confusing. There are so many advancements in dental technology that ensure that you get a beautiful, long-lasting false tooth that looks just like your natural teeth. Here at Ross Family Dental, we offer our patients dental implants, a permanent solution to tooth loss. This artificial tooth root looks, feels, and even acts like a real tooth, making it a popular option with many of our patients.
In the past, the only option was bridges or dentures if a patient lost teeth, but today there are so many wonderful solutions to rebuilding smiles after tooth loss. For our healthy adult patients who are missing one or more permanent teeth, we often recommend dental implants. We understand that after tooth loss, a patient is really looking for what’s going to give them a false tooth that is as close to their natural teeth. They want to be able to talk, chew, and smile without worrying about their artificial tooth. We understand that, which is why we offer dental implants.
An implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into the jawbone. It also preserves the health of the jawbone by stimulating it to produce new bone cells (just like real tooth roots do!). The implant will prevent the jawbone from deteriorating, which does occur after losing one or more teeth. About 3-6 months after the implant has been placed into the jawbone, the bone will heal around it. This makes the implant a permanent structure within the jawbone. From there, it can support a dental crown.
Of course, we want our patients to understand that dental implants are quite versatile and can be used to replace all of your missing teeth. Even if you are missing an entire row of teeth, dental implants are still a great option for you. They can even support your current dentures if you have dentures right now.
