Living with gaps in your smile because of one or more permanently lost teeth won’t only look unpleasant, but it can cause great damage to your oral health. Once you have lost a tooth, there is no longer a root there to stimulate your jawbone. This will weaken your jaw and the bone will slowly start to deteriorate if left untreated.
Dental implants are a revolutionary tooth replacement option that is the only solution that helps protect and rebuild your jawbone to support a new tooth root. They obtain one of the highest success rates of any other dental therapy and they can last for years with proper care.
How The Process Works
After your consultation at Summit Dentistry with Dr. Lopez, he will create a treatment plan specific to your dental needs and begin at your next appointment. At your following appointment, your journey towards a new, fully restored smile will begin.
Every implant is made with an artificial titanium root that is inserted into the jaw where your missing tooth once stood. New bone then develops around this artificial root throughout your healing period which can make it stronger than even your healthiest teeth.
At your final appointment, Dr. Lopez will complete your treatment with a final tooth restoration. This is the final step of your treatment and your new smile will be ready to shine. It will look and function just like your natural teeth.
