What are dental implants?
Dental Implants are a reconstructive prosthetic that will restore your mouth and teeth to full functionality. The dental implant can be compared to the roots on your natural teeth as they hold the tooth in place. Made out of titanium, they are small metal posts that permanently bond with bone. Unlike bridges and crowns alone, dental implants provide the most stable base for maximum functionality.
What are their benefits?
When you lose a tooth, the jawbone immediately starts to disintegrate as there is no longer any support from the roots of your teeth. Dental implants placed into the jaw encourage continual bone regeneration. This helps your replacement tooth to look and work exactly like a natural tooth should. Maintenance of your dental implants are no different that of your natural teeth. Continue your daily brushing, flossing and regular check-ups for optimal results.
Dental implants can be used to:
- Replace a missing tooth without compromising the surrounding teeth
- Stabilize dentures and bridges
- Improve chewing and speaking
- Restore your beautiful smile
