Is it time to fill your gummy smile with fixed, permanent teeth? Well, Dr. Taylor and Dr. Wagner are happy to do so with dental implants in Jonesboro, Arkansas!
Dental implants are very beneficial for those who want to replace their missing teeth with a stable and reliable option that will stay implanted for a lifetime. This process, however, might take some time to complete. The treatment generally requires multiple trips to Taylor Wagner Family Dentistry. The first step involves your dentist placing a small titanium post into the bone socket of the missing tooth. This step requires the bone to heal around the post to safely secure it, which could take anywhere from six to twelve weeks. After the bone has healed, a connector post is attached to the implant, which will hold the tooth in place. Your dentist will then create your new teeth by making impressions and sending them to the lab to be created for you. Once the teeth are made, they are securely fastened to the posts, which then gives you your new-and-improved smile!
This is an option that will improve your appearance, self-esteem, comfort, speech, and oral health. It is also a convenient and durable option that makes eating easier. To learn more about dental implants, call our office today!
