Dental Implants Can Restore Your Damaged Smile

Whether a patient is missing one tooth or a couple teeth, the embarrassing gaps in his or her smile can be significant. A gap in one’s smile can easily cause one to hide his or her beautiful smile. A missing tooth can also lead to additional oral health problems such as crooked teeth, infections and the deterioration of one’s jaw bone tissue.

A gap in one’s smile caused by a missing tooth can be quickly and easily restored with dental implants. At Lincoln Dental Associates, we can help revitalize your smile and restore your ability to eat and speak properly with dental implants.

What Are Dental Implants and How Do They Work

A dental implant is a 3-part dental appliance consisting of a titanium rod (called a root), an abutment and a dental crown. At Lincoln Dental Associates, dental implants are a relatively simple procedure.

We start by placing the strong, lightweight titanium implant into the jaw. Once it is in place, the surrounding jaw bone will naturally fuse to the metal rod, creating an extremely strong and durable bond. Once the jaw bone has fully healed around the titanium post, we can place the abutment which will secure the crown in place on top of the titanium implant.

The crowns we use at Lincoln Dental Associates are metal-free meaning your smile won’t be ruined by ugly, embarrassing dark spots. Our porcelain ceramic crowns look and feel like your natural teeth. When Each crown is uniquely made to fit the mouth and match the surrounding teeth of each patient. When you get dental implants in Lincoln, NE at Lincoln Dental Associates, people won’t even know you were ever missing a tooth.

Case-by-Case Considerations

Dental implants require patients to have enough bone density in their jaws for the implants to be securely applied. Patients who don’t have enough bone density or bone structure in their jaws may need a bone graft or have their sinus lifted to accommodate the titanium screw of the implant.

At Lincoln Dental Associates, we will work closely with you to determine all the variables and provide all the information you need to make the best decisions for your dental health.
