The void left in your mouth from the loss of a tooth can be embarrassing as well as inconvenient. The decreased ability to chew, changes in speech, and alterations in your appearance are just a few of the potential complications.
A dental bridge can certainly replace the tooth’s appearance and some of its function. Yet some people with this type of dental work complain that it doesn’t fully replicate the strength of the original tooth.
In a situation like this, you might want to receive a dental implant restoration at Morristown & Summit Prosthodontics. This calls for surgically inserting a titanium abutment into the underlying bone structure of the gap.
Titanium has a special property that allows the abutment to fully fuse with the living bone tissues. In time, this will allow the implant the have the same strength as the original natural tooth.
After your gums have healed and the titanium implant has fully fused with the surrounding bone structure, Dr. Madalina Iorgulescu can cement a dental crown onto it. This will fully restore the missing tooth’s presence, appearance, and function in your mouth.
If you live in the Summit, New Jersey, area and you’re missing a tooth, you should call 908-273-0884 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Madalina Iorgulescu. Our professional dental team is ready to assist you to get that smile you’ve always needed and wanted!
