Are you looking for a dentist for implants in Middletown? Titus Dentistry in Middletown can help you with your dental implant needs. It used to be if you lost a tooth or a few, you had very few options for replacing them. Now dental implants can replace just one tooth or all your teeth. Plus, implants can save any remaining teeth from becoming damaged while restoring your beautiful smile.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is surgical grade titanium post that are surgically placed in your jaw. After about twelve weeks, when the bone has grown around the implant, the implant integrates and becomes secured in the jawbone. Depending on what the implant will be used for, a variety of attachments can be fastened to the implant. If the implant will replace a single tooth, an abutment (a post that extends above the gums) is attached to the implant and a crown made to go over the abutment.
If the implant is being used to secure a denture, an abutment of a different shape will be attached to the implant that allows a denture to snap to it.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- Beautiful natural-looking smile

- Easier and more enjoyable to eat.
- Dental implants last a long time.
Regular trips to the dentist are still necessary even if you had all your teeth replaced with implants. Your gums need to be cleaned and examined to ensure there isn’t any infection or gum disease.
