WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DENTAL IMPLANTS
We use dental implants in our Jonesboro office to replace single or multiple missing teeth in conjunction with bridges or dentures. They can also help the shape and density of the jawbone by supporting the facial structure and soft tissues around the gums, cheeks, and lips. The functionality of implants helps you to eat, chew and have a natural-looking smile.
Dental implants at Northeast Arkansas Center for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery consist of three components: the implant, the crown, and the abutment, which fastens the crown to the implant. The implant is titanium and threaded on the outside like a screw to securely attach it to the bone.
We'll consider many factors when determining whether dental implants are good for your unique case. Overall health, oral health, and the quantity of jawbone available to anchor the implant are all factors that can increase or decrease the implant's chance of success.
If there is too little bone to support an implant securely, we may be able to perform a bone graft or sinus augmentation to increase the available bone.
