If you are missing one or more teeth from your smile, dental implants may be suggested by our skilled dentists, Dr. Bansal and Dr. Jun, to restore your smile. Dental implants are a surgical treatment and are available from start to finish at Salem Family Dental and Orthodontics. When compared to other forms of tooth replacement, dental implants are considered exceptionally strong and stable, designed to replace the entirety of your tooth from the tooth root to the crown.
To place dental implants, a small titanium post is first surgically placed into your jawbone. This post acts as your new tooth root. A period of healing follows as the post fuses to the bone. In order to hold your new tooth, which is normally a crown, bridge, or denture, into place, we will place an attachment called an abutment on the titanium post after it has healed. When everything has been checked for quality and fit, your final dental restoration will be cemented in place.
Dental implants look, feel, and function just like natural, healthy teeth. With dental implants, no one needs to know you ever lost a tooth. If you are interested in discovering all of the ways that dental implants in Salem, Massachusetts can benefit your smile, we invite you to call and schedule your consultation with Dr. Bansal and Dr. Jun today. We are eager to help restore the brilliance and health of your smile!
