The Unique Benefits of Dental Implants

Missing teeth cause problems with chewing and speaking, and over time other teeth in the area will shift, causing more dental problems. It's best for the health of your mouth and smile to have teeth replaced, and Dr. Kimberlee Murphy of Crystal Dental Care can help with dental implants.

Dental implants are a strong and beautiful option for replacing missing teeth. Keep reading for all the benefits of dental implants and come see us in Crystal, MN, to find out if you're a candidate for this method of tooth replacement.

Implants are strong

A dental implant is made from a screw-like titanium post and a ceramic crown. The post is implanted during minor surgery, and then you heal for a period of several weeks. During this time, a process called osseointegration takes place and your jawbone fuses to the implant, making it strong. After the healing period, the implant is capped off with a crown to replace the tooth.

Implants blend in with your smile

The ceramic crowns used with dental implants are custom-made to blend in with your natural teeth. During the initial healing period, you may wear a temporary tooth cap to protect the implant. This won't match perfectly but is only temporary while your custom restoration is being fabricated. When you leave from your final appointment you will have a crown made to last and match your smile.

Dental implants are easy to care for

When you have dental implants you need to take great care of your teeth, but it's easy to keep up a good oral hygiene routine at home. Your dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. If you grind your teeth at night your dentist will recommend a nightguard to protect the new crown frown damage. Schedule regular dental visits so you have cleanings and exams twice a year.

At Crystal Dental Care, Dr. Kimberlee Murphy transforms smiles by replacing missing teeth with dental implants. If you are missing a tooth a dental implant could change your life! Contact us for an appointment in Crystal, MN, at (763) 537-3655.
