Here at Ocean State Oral Surgery Center, L.L.C. in North Providence, Rhode Island, our team is excited to talk to you about dental implants, so you can understand how they can complete your smile.

Dental implants are extremely popular when it comes to replacing a missing tooth and are an excellent choice if you are looking for a long-term restoration. Restoring a tooth is important because, without a tooth to fuse to the bone, you could risk bone loss in your jaw and smile. The dental implant performs as the root of the tooth, giving your jaw bone and gum line the support it needs.

Titanium is the main material of choice when it comes to dental implant restorations because they work so well with our human body and jaw. Once the implant is carefully, but surgically placed in your jaw, your bone will fuse around the dental implant making it a strong anchor of support for your smile. While you are in the healing period, your doctor may recommend a diet of softer foods for your smile.

After the healing period is over, and your implant is safely in place, Dr. Aaron Ercole will be able to tailor a dental crown to place over the dental implant. The dental crown is important because it looks like your natural tooth, so you can have a complete smile restoration.
