So you’ve lost some teeth and now hesitate to smile because of the gaps. If only you could go back in time and take back that full-toothed smile you once had. Guess what? With dental implants, you can!
For most patients, a tooth implant is the perfect replacement for both the root and crown of a tooth. They feel so real that implant recipients forget that they ever lost a tooth in the first place.
A tooth implant is anchored into the jawbone with a durable metal post. It doesn’t move around like dentures, and unlike a dental bridge, it protects healthy jawbone and prohibits bone recession. After the post is entirely enmeshed with the jawbone, the supporting device (called an abutment) and beautiful crown are firmly attached to the post. Some patients are able to undergo all three parts of the treatment at once.
Another way to go back in time is to bleach your teeth to the sparkling color they were when you were an adolescent. There are several different types of tooth whitening systems, from same-day procedures to at-home treatments. Again, communicate with Dr. Acton about your goals and budget.
