Dental Implants Restore a Lost Tooth

Posted .

If you need to restore a lost tooth, then you have come to the right place! Our team at KC Smile Doc in Kansas City, Missouri, offers dental implants as a way to restore a lost tooth and can improve your oral health.

Dental implants are a successful dental procedure where a titanium post is surgically implanted in your jaw. This titanium implant acts as the root of a tooth and will bind to the bone and gum tissue. Dental implants keep your jawbone strong, so your cheeks do not droop from the bone loss that can occur if a tooth is empty for too long. After it is healed, your dentist, Dr. J. Richard Burch can restore the look of your dental implant with a dental crown placed over it. This will blend in with your teeth and give your teeth full restoration and function again.

There are also other uses that dental implants can provide, such as keeping dentures in place, or holding in a dental bridge if you have multiple missing teeth. Dental implants are extremely durable, which can help your teeth stay healthy and strong for years to come.
