Gaps or inconsistencies in your teeth no longer have to break up the beauty of your smile! When replacing missing or damaged teeth, dental implants can provide all the function and aesthetic appeal of natural teeth.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth root that is installed directly in the jawbone. This sturdy implant post serves as a replacement support for a crown, bridge, or dentures. The implant provides stability for an artificial tooth, allowing it to be used normally alongside the surrounding natural teeth.
A dental implant can replace a missing or severely damaged tooth root.
Our Implant Restorations
Dr. Tryon will examine your teeth and determine whether an implant would be a good way to restore your smile. Our practice works closely with an experienced specialist for the installment of your implant. Dr. Tryon is involved in the measurement, sizing, shaping, and placement of the implant. Your implant will be designed and placed for optimal comfort, function, and aesthetic.
Repair of Existing Implants
We can also repair and replace any existing dental implants you might have already. Because dental implants are not biological structures, they cannot repair themselves like real teeth and must be repaired by a dental professional.
An existing dental implant should be repaired or replaced if it is:
- Worn or misshapen.
- Stained or discolored.
- Broken or cracked.
- Loose or has fallen out.
- Causing pain or discomfort.
- Making eating or speaking difficult.
Even if you are not experiencing or seeing any of these signs, you should have your dental implants regularly evaluated. A damaged implant can lead to more damage and require more intensive dental work if ignored for too long. Dr. Tryon can examine the condition of your implants and let you know if they require any repairs.
