After tooth loss or extraction occurs, it is critical that patients in the Maple Grove, Minnesota, area seek replacement options as soon as possible. Without replacing these teeth, patients may experience low self-confidence, poor chewing and biting efficiency, and the inability to speak clearly.
While many options are available to patients, the team at Weimar Family and Implant Dentistry may recommend a solution, such as a dental implant to replace one or more teeth. But what are dental implants? How long do dental implants last? Are they for everyone?
Let’s take a closer look at dental implants and find out if they are right for you!
Dr. Richard Weimar describes the dental implant as a restoration made of titanium metal or ceramic that is placed in the jawbone where a tooth has been lost. It can support several restorations, including a dental crown, bridge, or denture, making it a versatile tooth replacement option for many patients.
We invite patients with sufficient jawbone structure to consider implants, as the appliance requires natural bone to stimulate the process of osseointegration and fuse the implant to the jawbone for optimum stability and strength.
When patients visit their dentist regularly for cleanings and evaluations and give attention to their daily oral health routines, they can expect their dental implant to last a lifetime! However, the implant restoration may need replacement occasionally, depending on wear and tear.
Repairing the smile after tooth loss and extraction with dental implants is a highly recommended solution for many of our patients at Weimar Family and Implant Dentistry.
We are open to new and returning patients at our state-of-the-art facility located at 11256 86th Avenue.
