Are you interested in replacing your missing tooth with a dental implant? If so, good for you! Dental implants can give you the complete, functional, and beautiful smile you’re looking for. To help you know a little more about this beneficial dental restoration, Dr. John Bosak, Jr. and our dental team are happy to share some facts about dental implants in Granada Hills, California.
A dental implant is a restoration that replaces your tooth as well as its roots. It includes a titanium post, an abutment, and a dental crown. First, the titanium post will be inserted in your jawbone. After the bone has healed around the post, your dentist will attach an abutment. Then, he will create a customized dental crown for you and place it over the abutment.
A dental implant can help you in a myriad of ways. It can improve your appearance, improve your speech, improve your confidence, make eating easier, improve your oral health, and give you the confidence you need. They are also very reliable because they are sturdy and permanent.
A dental implant is also easy to maintain. All you need to do is care for it like you care for your other teeth. Make sure to brush it twice a day and floss it once a day. It’s also important to visit your dentist every six months.
