A new solution to replacing missing teeth is dental implants in Dodge City, Kansas. This high-tech dental solution is perfect for just a few teeth, a full arch, or even a whole set of teeth. It’s important to understand once you lose a tooth, bone loss in the jawbone begins to occur, since the root of the tooth is no longer stimulating the bone. When you visit First Dental, we will go over with you the issues you may be dealing with, regarding missing teeth. The dentist will discuss with you all of the information you need to make the right decision for you or a member of your family. Dr. Lehmkuhler or Dr. Asbjornson will also explain the process of placing implants. Our office uses BioHorizon® dental implants, which are lightweight and very strong.
We care about you and your family’s dental health, so please contact the dentist today, at 620-225-5154, for an appointment.
Dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or all of the teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post. Following this healing period, our dentist will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, complete denture, or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function, and appearance. A dental implant is a great option for restoring your smile because the implant is designed to look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth, and with proper care, it can last a lifetime.
