With the loss of one tooth or multiple teeth, or even a tooth being extracted from your smile, your smile can be put back together with a dental implant! Suffering from an injury, dental infection, or extraction does not have to be part of your daily pain. Let our team of professionals here in Chincoteague, VA, and Eastern Shore, VA, help you get your best smile that will last for years to come.
A dental implant can help improve your eating and speaking habits, taking away the pain of trying to avoid that area or hide it. It is one of the top preferred methods with a solid structure of titanium built into the jawbone underneath the gums. Titanium is an incredible, durable metal, easily fusing into the jawbone in a process called osseointegration. This process is simple: you are given an aesthetic, then an incision is made in the gums, and a small channel is drilled into the bone. The titanium implants are then placed in the opening.
Afterwards, your gums are sutured closed, and your dentist will send you home with at-home-care instructions. Sometimes dental implants need the assistance of a bridge, crown, or denture to ensure its placement. Your dentist will discuss with you which course of treatment is best for you and your smile.
Here at Morrison Dental Group in Chincoteague, VA, we want you to have the best treatment so you can return to your regular lifestyle with the confidence knowing your eating and speaking habits aren’t affected by a missing tooth.
