If you’re among the 180 million Americans who are missing one or more teeth, you don’t have to live with it. Dental implants from Gary Gwilt, DMD, and the team at Tooth Corps in Peoria, Arizona, restore your smile and tooth functioning. Call the practice or use the online scheduling tool to find out if you’re a candidate for dental implants.
Dental implants are the strongest and longest-lasting option for replacing missing teeth. A dental implant places an artificial tooth root into your jaw and an artificial tooth on the gumline. The new tooth looks, feels, and performs exactly like your natural teeth.
Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth or multiple teeth with either dental crowns, bridges, or dentures. Once in place, implants improve your smile and self-confidence while making it easier to bite and chew your food.
At your implant consultation, the team at Tooth Corps uses advanced cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology to produce three-dimensional images of your teeth, gums, nerve pathways, and jawbone. This allows Dr. Gwilt to determine if you’re a candidate for dental implants and ensures proper placement of your implant.
Dental implants require oral surgery with Dr. Gwilt, a fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists who has an extensive implant and oral surgery experience. At your appointment, anesthesia keeps you comfortable while the implant is inserted into your jaw in place of the missing tooth.
Once the implant is in place, your jaw needs a few months to heal. After your implant fuses to your jaw, you return to Tooth Corps for the placement of your crown, bridge, or denture to restore your appearance and functioning.
Dental implants offer a nearly permanent solution to replacing missing teeth. Removable dentures can cause discomfort or make it difficult to eat, while dental implants stay firmly in place.
In addition to offering a strong and aesthetically pleasing tooth replacement, dental implants prevent oral health problems associated with missing teeth. For example, missing teeth can cause other teeth to move into the spaces, leading to crooked teeth and making it difficult to keep them clean.
When you have missing teeth, you’re more likely to grind or clench your teeth, which causes jaw pain and tooth damage. Replacing missing teeth closes the gaps to keep your teeth from moving out of place, and it also reduces your jaw pain.
To find out if dental implants can restore your smile and replace your missing teeth, call Tooth Corps or make an appointment online today.
