Dental Implants & Abutments
Dental implants are the closest you can get to natural, healthy teeth when your teeth reach a point where repair is no longer an option. Dental implants allow you to live your life the way you want to! You can eat, smile, laugh, talk, kiss, and enjoy all of your everyday activities without being self-conscious of your teeth. Think of dental implants as artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. When they are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone to make a sturdy base for supporting your new crown.
How do I know if I need a dental implant?
In cases where irreparable decay is the culprit, or if a root canal has gone awry, typically the first warning sign is unprovoked, recurring, and lingering pain (not in response to eating or drinking). If you’re just sitting around and you have a toothache that is severe and won’t let up, it’s possible your tooth may need removal and a dental implant placed. Another warning sign is swelling of the gum tissue in the area. If you’re experiencing any symptoms such as these, contact your local dentists at SPS Dental and we can help!
