If you have a missing tooth that needs to be replaced, you may be thinking about getting a dental implant. Dental implants are very popular with our patients as a way to replace missing teeth because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. If you want to learn more about getting dental implants in Toledo, you should visit us at our dental practice, Toledo Dental Arts, where we help many patients get dental implants.
At our dental practice our expert implant and cosmetic dentist is Dr. Shabbir Hashim. When a patient comes to our dental practice wanting to get dental implants, our dentist will first examine their jawbone to make sure that the jawbone is thick enough and healthy enough to successfully hold a dental implant. Once this is determined to be the case, our dentist will be able to surgically implant a dental implant root for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There is then a healing period of several months during which time the titanium dental implant root will fully fuse to the jawbone, and the jawbone will completely heal. Once our dentist determines that the healing time has completed, he will then proceed to permanently attach a porcelain crown to the top portion of each dental implant. At this point, the patient’s dental implants in Toledo are complete. A patient can receive one or many dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth.
Once the dental implants in Toledo are completed, our patient will only need to perform regular at-home brushing and flossing, and come in for periodic dental cleanings, in order to take excellent care of the dental implants. When taken care of in this manner, your dental implants should be able to last you for a lifetime. Patients enjoy dental implants because they allow them to speak, eat, and smile in total confidence once again. Dental implants are so attractive and comfortable that you will probably soon forget that you even have them in your mouth. This is because each porcelain crown is made to perfectly color-match the adjacent teeth so no one will ever even be able to tell that you have one – or many dental implants.
