If you have been thinking about getting dental implants to replace one or several missing teeth, you should visit us at Weston Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. At our dental practice, our expert dentist, Dr. Neil Weston, is able to provide our patients with dental implants in Germantown TN.
In order for a patient to be a good candidate for dental implants, our dentist will first need to determine that your jawbone is thick enough to withstand the oral surgery procedure. Once our patient is determined to be a good candidate for getting dental implants, our dentist will determine exactly where the dental implants should be located, and then surgically insert a titanium dental implant root for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There is then a waiting period of several months during which time the jawbone will completely heal and the dental implant root will firmly fuse to the jawbone. When our dentist has determined that all healing has completed, a beautiful new porcelain crown will be created which will be permanently attached to the top of the dental implant root. The dental implant crown will be made to perfectly color-match the adjacent teeth so no one will be able to tell that you have a dental implant. In fact, the dental implant will be so comfortable you too will soon forget that you even have it in your mouth. The porcelain crown will be firmly held in place by the dental implant root and you will never need to worry that it will hurt or shift position when you speak or chew. And, if well taken care of with a great at-home dental cleaning regimen, and with periodic dental cleanings at our office, there is no reason why your dental implants in Germantown TN should not last you for a lifetime.
