Dental implants in Westampton
Missing teeth have various negative outcomes. The most obvious one is that if the tooth is one that shows when you smile, you're going to have a visible gap. Your other teeth might shift, causing discomfort and possibly throwing your jaws out of alignment. Even your chewing can be compromised, which might affect your digestion. At the practice of Ella Kerzhner DMD, you can replace lost teeth with our dental implants in Westampton
What's the difference between an implant and a bridge or dentures? Those old-fashioned teeth restorations have drawbacks that are simply part of their construction. It doesn't make them bad, but our dental implants in Westampton give you everything you can get from bridges and dentures, but without the negative aspects. For example there is no messy adhesive involved. Furthermore, your other teeth won't lose any of their natural material. The reason is because an implant isn't just a replacement on top of your gums, but below them, too. There are two components. First is the titanium post that acts as a root, just like your real teeth have. It is surgically placed in your jaw. Over the course of a few months, your jaw bone grows around the post and fuses with it. Then, our dentist takes impressions that the dental lab uses to make a tooth-colored crown. That is the tooth portion of your implant, and it's cemented to the post. You can depend on our dental implants in Westampton
. Chew your food, even the toughest items, with confidence. Speak and laugh as you would normally. You may even forget that you have an implant after a while, because it feels so much like a real tooth. It looks like one and performs like one, as well.
