Did you know, it is important to restore a missing tooth? Dental implants have swept the nation in popularity because they are effective at restoring oral health and teeth. That is why, our team here at My Dentist Albuquerque in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is happy to give you some information on dental implants, so you can keep your smile healthy and strong.

When a tooth is gone due to injury, tooth decay, or gum disease, over time you can suffer from bone loss. To avoid this and any other oral health complications, having a dental implant is usually ideal. A dental implant is compatible with our smile and goes deep into the jaw acting as the root of a tooth, so your jaw stays healthy and strong and the crown over your implant stays supported.

After your dental implant is placed in your gums, there will be a healing period. During this time, you may want to nibble on softer foods to help your mouth heal effectively. Once the healing period is complete, Dr. Mike Roussel may place a dental crown over the top of it, to blend in with your surrounding teeth and restoring your smile.

Here at My Dentist Albuquerque, we take personal pride in your care and treatment. Our caring and professional staff stands ready to assist you for any of your oral health care needs. If you feel you have questions about dental implants or wonder if they are right for you, please call us today at 505-881-4365 to set up an appointment. We look forward to giving you a fully restored and healthy smile you can be proud of.
