Don't Let Gaps Control Your Smile

Gaps in your smile can make you feel as though your appearance is lacking. However, replacing those missing teeth and filling in your dental implantsgaps can boost your confidence and help you get a look you love. Dental implants are the most permanent and effective form of tooth replacement available. Find out more about dental implants with Dr. Kimberlee Murphy at Crystal Dental Care in Crystal, MN.

Am I a candidate for dental implants? 
A good candidate for dental implants should be in good dental and general health. Their teeth should be free from any instances of tooth decay or gum disease. When you lose a tooth, it causes the bone underneath to degrade, a process called bone atrophy. Since the implant sits within the jawbone, candidates should have minimal bone atrophy in that area to ensure that the implant stays securely integrated into the bone.

Can dental implants work with other procedures?
Dental implants work well with other procedures, particularly those which improve the appearance of the smile. Treatments like teeth whitening, dental bridges and crowns, and bonding and reshaping can help further improve your smile while implants fill the gaps. Working with your dentist is the best way to determine the right procedures for you and which treatments can help your teeth best.

Dental Implants in Crystal, MN 
Dental implants are permanent and non-removable, allowing patients to easily care for their implants the same as they would their natural teeth. Dental implants require a surgical placement of the implant’s fixture, requiring several visits to your dentist before and after the actual implantation process. If you think dental implants could be for you, you should consult with your dentist at a consultation. From there, you can choose the best treatment plan for you.
