Dental Implants From our Experienced New Hampshire Practice
We offer dental implants at our Nashua, New Hampshire, practice for patients who are missing one or more teeth. Dental implants are composed of three parts: a tiny titanium post, a metal ball atop the post and a rubber O-ring. The post is surgically inserted into the gums in place of the missing tooth’s root. The ball rests on top of the gums, where it anchors the artificial tooth (the crown, bridge or denture) in ball-and-socket fashion. The O-ring is placed as a cushion between the artificial tooth and the gums, providing enhanced comfort. The complete apparatus looks and functions as a natural tooth would, allowing patients to enjoy numerous benefits of complete oral functioning.
Benefits of Dental Implants
The benefits of dental implants are numerous. Because implant-supported crowns, bridges and dentures are anchored directly to the jawbone, they do not slip and slide like tooth-supported restorations, providing unparalleled self-confidence while eating, talking and chewing. They also do not cause the misalignment and gum corrosion often associated with traditional restorations. Dental implants can be used to replace just one tooth, or to replace multiple teeth — or even all the teeth in the mouth — in a total mouth reconstruction.
Dental implants administered at our New Hampshire office can be used to support a single crown, a bridge or a full set of dentures, restoring ease to chewing and speaking. The result looks and feels so natural that you may not be able to distinguish the dental implants from your original teeth. One of the advantages of a tooth implant from our New Hampshire dentists is that they do not rely on surrounding natural teeth for support. In addition, they require no special maintenance. As long as you maintain a sensible oral hygiene routine and schedule regular dental exams, the dental implants our Nashua dentists restore should last a lifetime.
