Losing any tooth in your mouth can have a profound effect on your oral function and your life. This is especially troublesome if the missing tooth was a part of your smile. Not only will it alter your appearance it could also cause you to slur your speech and lead to future orthodontic complications.
One effective way to restore the tooth’s presence and appearance in your mouth is to have Dr. Jay Hildreth install a dental implant with a porcelain dental crown.
This dental restoration calls for Dr. Jay Hildreth to insert a titanium dental implant into the underlying bone structure of the void. This can often be done in a single outpatient appointment requiring full sedation. Afterward, you will need someone to drive you home and lend you a hand for a few hours while your senses fully clear.
Once it has bonded with the surrounding bone tissues, Dr. Jay Hildreth can start the process of fitting the dental implant for a porcelain crown. This special dental material can be perfectly shaded to match the surrounding teeth in your smile.
This will fully restore the function and appearance of your original tooth for many years ahead.
