“What Are Dental Implants And How Are They Used To Replace Missing Teeth With Crowns?” Part 3

In Parts 1 and 2, I discussed dental implants, what they are, how successful they are (over 95 %), how strong they are, etc. Today’s article has a few final thoughts and some real patient pictures.

Some Final Thoughts

  • Implants will give you the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth.
  • Implants will enhance your appearance and self-confidence; no need to worry about smiling or speaking in public because of missing teeth.
  • Implants will promote better health… natural biting and chewing with them.
  • Implants, as I mentioned before, are cost effective and many patients feel they are one of the best investments for their dental well being they ever made.

Case Examples:

These are pictures of three different patients who had implant therapy.

  • The first is of a young girl missing two upper teeth.
  • The second is of a middle aged woman with four lower teeth missing. The middle photo here illustrates the two abutments which screw into the implants.
  • The last is of a senior citizen who had seven implants placed. Count them on the X-Ray. There are 7. Now he is repairing his lower teeth.
