Your First Step to a Great Smile!
Missing a tooth is never a good experience; it changes your appearance and can make chewing food much more difficult. Uptown Dental provides dental implant services to improve your smile, restore facial issues, correct biting, and ensure no surrounding teeth shift! Dental implants feel natural and will get you smiling again in no time!
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the artificial root of prosthetic teeth. The dental implant inserts inside the jaw in place of the tooth's root. The screw that is inserted extends through the gums and into the mouth. This implant provides support for artificial teeth. Tooth loss can lead to rapid bone loss, defective speech, or changes to chewing patterns. You can get a dental implant if you have a healthy bone in your jaw to hold the implant, and if the bone in your jaw has shrunk or did not develop properly, bone grafting can build it back up. Quality of life and patient health can significantly improve with dental implants!
After Receiving your Implant
Once your dental implant is in place, you will notice some changes. Dental implants will preserve the health of your surrounding bone and gums. Your ability to chew and your cosmetic appearance will be restored. Your teeth nearby will remain stable, and you will be able to smile again with confidence. You can easily take care of your new implant like a normal tooth, keeping it clean using a toothbrush and floss. Regular check-ups are essential to ensure the implant is not loose and your bite is correct. At Uptown Dental, we aim to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure and satisfied with your smile.
