Dental Implants in Estevan
You can smile confidently again without anyone ever suspected that you have a missing tooth. Dental implants are a beautiful, functional, and sturdy solution for replacing missing teeth. Not only do they look natural, but they also help to protect your jawbone from erosion and damage.
How implants work
Dental implants are composed of two parts; the implant and the artificial tooth.
A regular tooth has roots that attach to the jawbone and prevent the bone from eroding away. When the tooth is missing there must be a replacement for the root as well to prevent further damage to the jaw.
This is where the implant comes in; a small titanium rod is surgically inserted into the jaw to mimic the function of a natural tooth root. Once the implant is fully healed, a natural-looking artificial tooth is attached to the implant.
Once the dental implant procedure is complete, the end result is strong and beautiful.
