In our last post, we started our short series on dental implants by talking about what can happen to your smile when you lose a tooth. Today, we’d like to go beyond that by explaining how dental implants can help you restore your smile.
Enjoy a Natural Smile Again
With dental implants, Dr. Sasson can help his Boston-area patients enjoy a smile that feels and looks completely natural, all because of how dental implants work.
Unlike other cosmetic and restorative solutions, which just replace the crown portion of a tooth, dental implants replace the crown and the root. But this isn’t just any kind of prosthetic root. It’s made from titanium, a biocompatible metal.
Why is that important?
Because it ensures that, over time, your prosthetic root (also known as an implant post) will fuse with the jaw in much the same way as a natural root, resulting in a restored smile that will feel just like the one nature gave you.
Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?
However, it’s always possible that dental implants aren’t truly the right restorative or cosmetic option for you. That’s why we always encourage any patients who are considering treatment with implants to schedule a consultation visit with Dr. Sasson. During a consultation, Dr. Sasson can complete a thorough exam of your smile before recommending the treatment plan that works best for you.
