Dental Implant Solutions In Derry NH
Sometimes a single tooth can be lost due to a sports injury, decay, or other accident. When this happens and the tooth cannot be saved or reinserted, we can replace the lost tooth with a single dental implant.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant, or tooth implant, is a tiny metal rod that functions as a synthetic tooth root. Like your natural tooth root, a tooth implant will fuse directly to your bone and keep your jawbone healthy and strong. Our dental implants in Derry NH are made with a special titanium alloy. When combined with a beautiful, fine quality porcelain crown, a tooth implant can replace a lost tooth and give a patient their full smile back.
The Benefits of Using a Dental Implant for a Single Tooth Replacement
Other tooth replacement options for patients who have lost a single tooth are less durable and less permanent. Some require patients to remove the application from their mouths before they eat. For younger patients especially, this can cause embarrassment or insecurity. A dental implant is inserted directly into your gumline. It will never fall out of place or get lost, and it can last a lifetime alongside the rest of your natural teeth.
Dental implants look and feel completely natural. No one will be able to tell you ever lost a tooth. The synthetic tooth root keeps your jawbone healthy, and provides better benefits for your oral health. Dental implants are easy to care for and can be flossed and brushed along with your regular teeth.
