You can repair your smile with a dental implant if you’ve lost a tooth or multiple teeth to either an infection in the mouth, unfortunate accident, tooth extraction, or any other incident. Here at Robert Eversole, DDS, PC, we strive to give you the dental care you need to restore your smile back to its original form or even a better alteration.
With the restoration of your smile, you will be able to return to simple daily things such as speaking, chewing, and eating correctly without the discomfort of a missing tooth. The process is simple; you start with scheduling an appointment with your dentist to determine if this is the best course of treatment for you and your smile.
In the course of one treatment visit, your dentist first starts by making an incision in your gums to open a channel to the jawbone. A drill creates a hole in the bone to place and screw in the titanium implant. The gums are then sutured closed. A dental implant is made of titanium due to its durability and ability to let osseointegration occur. This process is when a bone fuses with a foreign material.
After the installation of a dental implant, you may need a dental crown, bridge, or denture to assist your smile. With this installation, your smile can improve in functionality and looks, so give Dr. Robert Eversole a call today at 812-663-8088 to set up a consultation or appointment.
