Dental implants in Milford, MA 01757
A dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth root. In many cases, it is one of the best ways to replace missing teeth, or several missing teeth. Your dentist in Milford can work with you to determine if you’re a good candidate for dental implants. In some cases, especially if you are older or the tooth (or teeth) has been missing for some time, you might have experienced some bone loss in that area. In these cases, it may require you to get a bone graft to “build up” the bone structure in that area before applying the implant.
Dental implants are one of the ideal ways to restore a tooth, or teeth, for a couple of reasons. The first is retention. They are extremely strong and durable, and in many ways, function like your natural teeth. They even naturally stimulate bone growth of the surrounding area. The second is reason is the aesthetic. Since you will receive a “crown” that screws into the “titanium root”, you and your Milford dentist will be able to discuss size, shape, and color of the tooth (or teeth).
