Replace Teeth with Dental Implants in Lincoln
A full smile is essential for good self-confidence, as well as good health and well being. If you need to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth, our Lincoln dental office has a terrific solution for you. Dental implants can help you restore what you've lost, with results that will look and feel natural.
What separates dental implants from their traditional counterparts? The answer to that is simple. Besides replacing your missing tooth (or teeth), implants also replace your missing roots. This will provide your restoration with vital support, for added strength and stability.
The Importance of Tooth Roots
Our tooth roots have two important jobs. The first, and the most obvious, is that they hold our teeth in place. The second, which is just as essential, is that they stimulate the growth of new bone tissue in the jaw.
When you lose a tooth, you also lose the root that held it in place. As a result, that part of your jaw will begin to atrophy. As it does, healthy teeth nearby will become vulnerable over time. If your root isn't eventually replaced with an implant, you may lose addition teeth.
Implants, on the other hand, are designed to prevent all this by interacting with the jaw the way a natural root does. Through a process known as osseointegration, your implant(s) will form a natural bond with your jaw, preventing further bone loss while providing your restoration with much-needed support.
Full-Service Implant Dentistry from Pioneer Greens Dentistry
Treatment with dental implants is completed over two phases. In the first phase, one or more metal implants will be surgically placed in your jaw. Most practices must refer their patients to an outside oral surgeon for this phase. But at Pioneer Greens Dentistry, a member of our own team will be happy to complete your procedure.
Afterwards, we'll give your mouth time to heal. The osseointegration process will also occur during this period.
When this process is complete, you'll return to our Lincoln office for the second phase of care, which will culminate in the attachment of your new restoration.
