Whether due to age, injury, or improper oral hygiene, you may lose a tooth in your lifetime, and the gap in your mouth could affect your dental health, ability to eat, and your confidence in your appearance.
With dental implants from Dr. Aziz Majid in Harrisburg, you can restore your teeth to their healthiest and most functional while improving the look of your smile.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are screw-like metal posts that serve as the root for an artificial tooth. Secured into your jaw bone, dental implants provide a secure, permanent base to improve your jaw structure and allow for the placement of an artificial tooth, customized at our Harrisburg office to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth.
What can dental implants correct?
Dental implants can replace a tooth that is already missing or one which requires removal for fracture, chips, severe decay, erosion of enamel, or damage from an injury.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants are natural-looking and attractive, so people won't be able to tell it isn't your real tooth. Because they are permanent, dental implants require no removal for cleaning or sleeping. You will be able to bite, chew, brush, and floss like normal without any discomfort or concern about the implant become loose or shifting around in your mouth. Dental implants also improve your oral health, as the void from a missing tooth can become susceptible to bacteria build-up, decay, and infection.
Dental implants are beneficial to total body health as well, giving you the ability to eat nutritious, crunchy foods like produce so you can obtain vitamins and minerals.
How do I take care of dental implants?
Once your dental implant is healed, you can eat, brush, and floss as normal. Make sure to continue making regular visits to our Harrisburg office for professional cleanings and examinations.
