Understanding Dental Implants

How dental implants from your family dentists in Cincinnati, OH, can rebuild your smile.

Dental implants are an investment in your smile, and you need to understand what you are getting and how you can benefit. The truth is, dental implants provide the most natural-looking tooth replacement available today. They also can give you superb chewing function, which helps your digestion and overall health.

Drs. Ron Solomon, Angela Burleson-Ott, and Bradley Girdwood of Cornerstone Dental Group in Cincinnati, OH, offer comprehensive family dental care, including dental implants to rebuild your smile.

The dental implant process is straightforward. The dental implant screw is placed during a simple in-office procedure. This screw will become the “root” of your missing tooth.

Over time, bone grows around the dental implant screw and fuses with it, anchoring it firmly in place. After the implant screw is secure and stable, it is capped with a sparkling new dental implant crown.

Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth, several missing teeth, or even an entire arch of teeth. Dental implants can give you back your smile.

There are many important benefits and reasons why you should choose dental implants. Consider that dental implants are:

  • Lifelike and natural, because dental implant restorations are made of materials that closely resemble natural tooth structure
  • Fully stable, because they are locked in place by bone, so they will never move around
  • Easy to maintain, because you can simply brush and floss them just like your natural teeth
  • Permanent, because you never remove them, so they are an excellent choice for your active lifestyle

Dental implants are also extremely successful. In fact, they are the most successful surgical implant, boasting a success rate of over 95 percent, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
