Dental Implants: What They Are & How They Restore Your Smile, Elyria, Ohio

If you’ve recently lost one or several teeth, you should consider getting dental implants from an excellent oral health expert like  Leidenheimer Dental Group in Elyria, OH. Dental implants look like natural teeth and don’t require changes in your dental health habits.

With dental implants, all you have to do is brush, floss, and visit your dentist as you normally would. Sounds great, right? But you’re probably wondering exactly what dental implants are and how they work.

Elyria-OH-dental-implantsA dental implant is a tiny cylindrical piece of titanium that is surgically inserted into the area of your jaw where you previously had a natural tooth. During the healing process, the dental implant will fuse with your jawbone to create a durable foundation. This process can take a few weeks or even a couple of months, so during this time you will have to take extra care of the area so the dental implant isn’t disturbed.

Once the implant is fully secured, your dentist will place an abutment on top and connect it to the replacement tooth or teeth using a screw or dental cement. Replacement teeth usually are crowns made of a mix of porcelain and metal alloy, but there are full-porcelain and full-metal options available.
