Dental Implants

Wilmington and Dover, DE Implant Specialists

At Delaware Periodontics, we feel the most rewarding part of our job is helping patients achieve a bright and beautiful smile. Unfortunately, many people lose their teeth due to trauma or periodontal disease which, in turn, limits the kinds of food they can eat and greatly reduces their self esteem.

Luckily, our practice provides the residents of Wilmington and Dover with the highest quality of dental implants to help you regain your lost confidence. Continue reading below to learn more about dental implants and how they could improve your quality of life.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants consist of titanium posts that are surgically embedded into the jawbone where a natural tooth would typically reside. These metal posts provide stability for the artificial tooth, just as the root does for natural teeth.

Once the post is put in place, a smaller post is then attached to the implant and an artificial tooth placed on top. Aside from the obvious aesthetically pleasing benefits, these implants can preserve your facial structure by preventing severe bone deterioration that occurs with missing teeth.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Over the years, advances in dentistry have made dental implants a more common choice among patients who are missing teeth. A patient who receives a dental implant will not only improve his or her smile, but regain the ability to consume all the person’s favorite foods.

Although dentures or partial dentures are a viable solution for missing teeth, patients who wear them may have difficulty chewing certain foods, lose their sense of taste, and may have lost confidence in their smile. Furthermore, once a dental implant is in place, you no longer have to worry about it, unlike dentures, which require additional maintenance.
