Hershey, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/09/2014 -- Unlike hockey players who wear missing teeth as a badge of honor, most people see their missing teeth as a detriment to their once beautiful smile. In the past, the only option for replacing missing teeth was dentures. Thanks to recent advances in dentistry, there are now more ways for dentists to replace missing teeth, such as dental implants. American Dental Care in Hershey is proud to announce they have availabilities for dental implant procedures this winter.
When an accident happens and a tooth is dislodged there is only a small window to get the tooth re-attached. After the window has expired, many feel they have to go through life with a gap in their teeth. Dental implants provide a fixed solution that restores, and often enhances, the patients smile. The implant, typically made of titanium, will act as a normal tooth and are durable enough to last many years.
The process will require the patient to visit the dentist in Elizabethtown multiple times over several months. During patient's first visit, x-rays and impressions are taken to make the custom implant that will fit perfectly into place. At the next appointment, the anchor will be surgically inserted into the jaw. Depending on the location of the implant, a second procedure may need to be performed to attach a post that will hold it in place. Once placed, it will take up to six months for the piece to be integrated with the jaw.
After the anchor is firmly in place, the dentist will attach the artificial tooth. Since the teeth may have shifted in the absence of the missing tooth, several fittings may need to be done, which can take one or two months. Once the implant is completed, the dentist will provide instructions on how to maximize the lifespan of the piece.
