In the case of a patient who is missing one or more permanent teeth, Drs. Schulte, Garrity, Wiebe, and Freed may recommend a dental implant in Canton, South Dakota. A dental implant is a restoration that replaces both the crown and root of the tooth. The dental implant post, which is placed in the jawbone, becomes a permanent part of your smile. The dental restoration, which is usually a dental crown, is attached to the dental implant post to replace the missing tooth.
Dental implants have many perks for you and your smile. They are designed to look and feel just like your natural teeth, so they can restore and improve the beauty and functionality of your smile. Because the dental implant post is designed to fuse with your jawbone, your dental implant will become a permanent part of your smile. Dental implants can allow you to speak properly once again. Unlike some other restorations, you won’t have to worry about your new tooth or teeth slipping. Implants also allow you to eat with confidence and comfort. Dental implants are very durable, so they will last for many years, or even a lifetime.
