If you have recently lost a tooth, you’ll want to schedule an appointment with our Holland dentist as soon as possible to learn if you are a candidate for dental implants.
A dental implant is a titanium rod inserted in your jawbone that acts much like a natural tooth root would to later support an abutment and porcelain crown.
It’s important to understand that your teeth are held in place by roots and surrounding teeth. This means that when you lose one tooth, nearby teeth begin to tilt toward the open space and may eventually become loose.
Benfits Of Dental Implants
To protect your smile, we recommend exploring tooth replacement options like dental implant surgery. While the dental implant procedure takes several months, many of our patients believe that it’s worth having a false tooth that looks and feels natural.
The dental implant process takes several months. During your first appointment with us, our dentist will insert the implant into your jawbone. Over the next several months, the tooth implant will fuse to your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. Once the implant has successfully fused, your dentist will be ready to place the abutment and dental crown to give you the function and appearance of a natural tooth.
