When it comes to dental injuries, tooth loss can be one of the most devastating, both to your overall oral health and your self-confidence. Unsightly gaps in your smile can make it hard to share your full enthusiasm and personality with friends and colleagues for fear of being embarrassed by unsightly gaps in your smile. Worse, patients who’ve lost one or more teeth tend to be at an increased risk for gum disease and additional tooth loss, not to mention a newly crooked look as the remaining teeth shift so as to fill the empty area.

What is a dental implant?
A dental implant
actually consists of multiple components! First, there’s the small post that’s made from biocompatible titanium, which is placed in the appropriate socket. This post will help keep your jawbone healthy and full by giving it a new tooth root to fuse with.
Then, once an appropriate amount of time has passed for healing, Dr. Schramm will create a beautiful, customized porcelain crown to sit atop the post. This crown will look and feel just like a natural tooth, and better yet, the dental implant
will add a valuable extra layer of sturdiness and stability. Dental
implants can also be used to anchor dentures, partials, crowns, and bridges – no more worrying about slippage for you!
