Dental Implants - Implant Dentistry
Grove City Dentist Serving Columbus, Dublin, Hilliard, Ohio
If you have lost one or more teeth in your life, you know that tooth gaps can be a source of self-consciousness when smiling and make it difficult to chew in that area of your mouth. Dental implants are the closest thing to natural teeth that the dental industry has created thus far. At Sheridan Dental in Grove City, Dr. Sheridan and his team feel implants are the ideal way to replace missing teeth.
Benefits of Dental Implant Tooth Replacement
When it comes to tooth replacement options, there is no stronger or more natural-looking solution than the dental implant. Replacing a lost tooth with an implant will allow you to chew normally, so you can keep enjoying all the foods you love.
Unlike dentures, implants are permanent fixtures, so there is no special maintenance that takes up your time. Dental implants also offer the unique benefit of preventing bone loss since they are attached to the actual jawbone. Finally, implants for tooth replacement help keep the bite stable and prevent other teeth from shifting out of place.
Sheridan Dental's Implant Role
The actual implant consists of a titanium replacement tooth root, an abutment that connects the root to the replacement tooth, and the replacement tooth (dental crown) that sits above the gumline.
Dr. Sheridan will evaluate your overall health in regards to how it might affect your implant, and examine the area to determine which implant is right for you. After the implant is set and the gums have healed properly, Dr. Sheridan will create the dental crown and ensure proper fit and comfort.
To help you better understand what dental implants can do to improve your dental health, you can prepare a list of questions for your implant dentist and bring them to your first appointment.
If you are interested in completing your smile with strong, natural-looking dental implants, Dr. Sheridan offers free implant dentistry consultations to discuss your needs. Please contact Sheridan Dental to get started.
