What Is A Dental Implant?

5 foods that can whiten your teeth.

Dental implants are becoming more affordable and more accessible than other treatments in dentistry. When it comes to comfort and durability, there’s nothing better. A dental implant replaces a missing tooth, acting as a root for a crown. Dental implants are made from titanium or titanium alloy. Titanium can fuse with the bone in your jaw and doesn’t break down in the body. Dental implants come in many different sizes and shapes to suit each patient, too, making them a diverse and versatile option. A dental implant replaces the root of the natural tooth before the placement of an implant abutment and a dental crown.

When patients are missing one or more teeth, the jaw bone recedes, and the structure of the face changes. Dental implants replace the tooth roots that would keep the jaw bone intact. Over time, patients will feel as if they have their own tooth in their mouth, making them far more comfortable than dentures. There’s no slipping or discomfort with dental implants, so you can speak and eat as you normally would.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Patients who receive a successful dental implant treatment find that they are happy with the resulting ways it impacts their lives. Dental implants are reliable, stable, and beautiful, which allows you to enjoy food, to smile without hiding your teeth, and feel confident when interacting with others. 

Those who wear dentures report the feeling of them slipping on the gum or ill-fitting and uncomfortable. Since dental implants are permanently set in the bone, they will never move or feel uncomfortable. You may even forget they are there as you go about speaking and chewing without any problems. Also when compared to cleaning and taking care of dentures, caring for a dental implant is straightforward. It is the same as taking care of your natural teeth; regular flossing, brushing, and dental check-ups.

Modern dental implants have been used successfully for over 30 years. The surgery is safe and one of the most predictable procedures with a success rate of 98%. When you come to our office to have them placed, you can rely on the experience and skills gained by our team. 

Dental implants are the only dental restoration that preserves natural bone, and even stimulates bone growth through a process called osseointegration.
