The Solution for Tooth Restoration
If you’re missing a tooth and it’s causing dental issues, Dr. Wetherill might suggest a permanent solution called a dental implant. Dental implants are a common procedure designed to replace a missing tooth with a custom-built implant that gets attached to the jawbone with a screw. Dr. Wetherill will refer you to an oral surgeon or periodontist to have the implant placed, after which you return to Wetherill Family Dentistry for completion of the process. Once the implant is placed, Dr. Wetherill will design a custom implant crown that will cover the implant and improve the functionality of your smile. A variety of dental implant restoration procedures are available at Wetherill Family Dentistry in Wilmington, each providing a unique method for tooth replacement. Our restorative dentist and dental team can discuss which implant restoration method is the best solution for you.
Dental Implant Restoration Benefits
A missing tooth can cause a host of oral health and speech problems, and it can even affect your confidence. Implant restoration crowns can last for up to 15 years, while the screw holding the implant can last a lifetime. To ensure the longevity of your implants and restorations, it’s important to go for regular checkups every six months, floss regularly, and brush daily.
By opting for this procedure, you may see an improvement with the following:
- Eating and chewing
- Infections and disease
- The overall aesthetics of your teeth
