Abington, MA (PRWEB) July 20, 2012
At Abington Family Dental Care, E. Michael Thomas Jr., DMD, is using titanium dental implants as a permanent solution to tooth loss for his patients. Because implants are permanently installed in the jawbone, they are very durable and decay-resistant. Dental implant cost is determined on an individual basis and depends on a number of different factors including the number of implants that will be required, their location and the health of the jawbone.
When Dr. Thomas uses dental implants, he takes all of those factors into account on an individual basis in order to make a proper determination for the procedure and the dental implant cost. When teeth are extracted, whether because of excessive decay, gum disease or even because of an accident, they leave a gap. The surrounding teeth may try to move to fill in that gap. In addition, the jawbone can begin to erode or deteriorate almost as soon as the tooth has been removed.
Surgically installing dental implants as soon as possible after the removal of the tooth can help to save the jawbone as well as support the adjacent teeth so that they remain in their proper places. The implant is formed of titanium and is designed to fuse with the jawbone. An abutment attaches to the part of the implant that sticks out of the jaw and is used to connect the crown. The crown is color matched to the adjacent teeth so that it will blend in perfectly with the rest of the natural teeth.
At Abington Family Dental Care a patient can choose dental implants whether one tooth is missing or many teeth are missing. Dr. Thomas is very experienced in the use of implants and appreciates their longevity. In fact, implants are being used with excellent results for over 20 years. They can be a permanent solution to the problems associated with missing teeth.
