Dental Implants

Restoring Your Smile for a Happier Life

While it would be ideal to have perfect natural teeth with excellent oral health, the reality is that many people may have damaged teeth, from decay, periodontal disease or trauma. This may cause gaps in their smiles, less self-confidence, and problems eating all the foods they love. At Delaware Periodontics, we’re proud to offer dental implants, that offer a long-lasting solution for patients looking to improve their smile and get back to living life they way the want to! We have unmatched experience providing this treatment to patients in Wilmington, near Dover and other surrounding areas, and you’ll find out more about them below.

Dental Implants: The Gold Standard in Tooth Replacement

If you’re missing one tooth or several teeth, you may be a good candidate for dental implants considered the gold standard in tooth replacement. Not only do dental implants look, feel, and function just like natural teeth, but they’re also very stable and long-lasting.

Many people today are choosing dental implants over other tooth replacement options like partial or full dentures because implants require very little special care and offer many advantages over dentures. Dental implants never shift out of place or make clicking noises when chewing or speaking, nor do they require the use of any messy dental adhesives.

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a small, screw-like post made of a biocompatible material like titanium that is surgically implanted into the jawbone where a natural tooth root once was. Once it’s put into place, the implant is given time to heal and integrate with the bone. Then an abutment is screwed into the implant so that a crown (tooth top) can be attached to the abutment to complete the procedure.

In addition to improving how your smile looks, dental implants can help preserve your facial structure by preventing bone deterioration that occurs with missing teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, multiple teeth, or even an entire upper or lower set of teeth.
