Dental Implants Improve Your Oral Health and Appearance

Dr. Nils Sandstrom is pleased to offer dental implants at our practice as a solution for our patients who have lost one or more teeth. Implants are complete restorations and replace the entire structure of your tooth, including the root. They are stable and permanent tooth replacements but are also a more intensive procedure in comparison to other dental restorations. So, to ensure your dental implants are suitable for your oral health and are successful in improving your smile’s function and appearance, we invite you to arrange a consultation at our office.

Your jawbone must be dense enough to support the dental implant post, a screw made of titanium. When the implant post is placed, a period of healing and recovery is required to allow it to bond with your bone structure. While it is healing, you will have either a temporary crown or bridge placed over it. So, your smile will appear natural and function properly. Once the implant post has healed, a permanent abutment (a restoration of your choice) will be placed over top of it. You can then enjoy all your favorite foods again and finally feel confident in your smile’s appearance. You can also brush and floss your replacement tooth the same way you do your natural teeth.
