Dr. Sam Shamoon of Today's Smile Center places dental implants for patients in the Berkley, MI, area. If you have missing teeth there are some great benefits to dental implants. Implants are made from a titanium post and ceramic crown so they are strong and blend in with your natural teeth. Read about the benefits of implants and come see us if you are missing teeth.
Dental implants are topped with a crown that is custom-made to blend in perfectly with your natural teeth. Ceramic crowns are designed to blend in with your smile and be strong like your natural teeth. You wear a temporary tooth cap during the healing period with an implant while your custom crown is fabricated. Your permanent crown is placed at a final appointment and you leave with a new tooth!
Implants are made from a screw-like titanium post implanted in the jaw. During a healing period, the implant fuses with your jaw bone, giving it strength. This process is called osseointegration. When the strength of the jawbone is maintained with an implant, there is less facial sagging in that area. So dental implants can even help you look younger!
Easy to care for
Caring for dental implants is as simple as taking good care of your teeth. Your Berkley, MI, dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Make sure you floss in the area of the implant and remove all debris from around the crown. If you grind your teeth at night, your dentist will recommend a nightguard to protect the surface of your new crown.
If you are missing teeth, dental implants could be the best solution for you. Come see Dr. Shamoon of Today's Smile Center in Berkley, MI, for a dental implant. Contact us for an appointment at (248) 543-1778.
