A Quick Guide to Dental Implants, Anchorage, Alaska

Dental implants are a cosmetic dentistry solution and involve permanently affixing a structure to your jawbone to serve as a replacement tooth. They can restore the look of your smile, and they also provide a replacement chewing surface in the case of missing teeth.

What Is the Procedure for Dental Implants?

dental implantsAccording to the experts at Denali Dental Care in Anchorage, AK, the dental implant procedure is fairly straightforward. Your dentist will begin by preparing the implant site. This is done by drilling a small hole into the bone, which serves as the location for the implant post. A dental crown is then attached to the post to complete the process, taking on the appearance of a natural tooth.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

If you have damaged or missing teeth, implants can repair the look of your smile without the use of a dental bridge. The implant will blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.

But the benefits aren’t just aesthetic because a missing tooth can cause a host of other issues. For example, some patients opt for partial dentures or dental flippers to replace a missing tooth, but this can cause speech problems. With dental implants, your speech will remain completely unaffected.

Likewise, eating with a missing tooth or with a partial denture can cause discomfort. But with dental implants, your tooth functions naturally, allowing you to chew with ease.

Dental implants are a durable, natural-looking option for patients who would like to restore their smile and get back to feeling their best. If you’re interested in this cosmetic dentistry option, schedule an appointment at Denali Dental Care by calling (907) 274-7691. For more information, visit their website.
