Thousands of Americans lose their teeth every year. Whether it’s due to tooth decay, facial trauma, or injuries to the mouth, people are subject to tooth loss. A missing tooth can cause pain and frustration, and can lead to embarrassment. Although it may seem like an annoyance and an aesthetic blemish at first, a missing tooth can lead to more serious problems over time if left untreated. Dental Group West, located near Sylvania, Ohio, offers comprehensive tooth replacements in the form of fixed (not removable) dental implants.
What are Dental Implants?
The team of doctors and their support staff at Dental Group West are passionate about providing bright, life like, healthy smiles to every patient who desires this service. We want to ensure that everyone receives the best treatment possible, which is why our office is equipped with the latest dental technology and our staff is current with the latest dental trends. We know that a missing tooth is no laughing matter, which is why we can provide a dental implant solution to effectively restore function and form to your mouth. Implants can last a lifetime, if cared for properly, and can support very natural looking teeth. It is literally like growing a new, free standing tooth.
What is the Procedure?
When you arrive for your initial comprehensive examination appointment at our Toledo, OH location, we will take the time to assess the environment in your mouth, especially the place or places an implant would potentially work. If an implant is feasible, the process begins. Implants consist of three parts; the implant body, placed in the jaw bone, and the abutment head and crown, placed above the gum line. We entrust the placement of the implant as well as any grafting necessary to our oral surgeon partners whom we’ve worked with for over twenty years. Once healing is finished, we restore the top of the implant.
