Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth or add extra support for your existing teeth. They're made from titanium and can be used with the most natural-looking crowns and bridges. However, there are a few things you should know about them before going under the drill. Read on for more information!
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that can support replacement teeth or other dental appliances. They're used to replace missing teeth, but they can also be helpful for people with natural teeth problems, such as weak enamel or gums disease. Dental implant surgery is a complicated process, which makes it very expensive and time-consuming. It's not something you should rush into!
If you've already lost some of your original set of pearly whites due to accidents or injuries, then this might be the treatment option for you. We will examine your jawbone structure first to make sure there's enough space to fit implants in. This means making room where necessary by removing any other structures in the way first.
Why would someone need a dental implant?
Dental implants are used to support prosthetic teeth or false ones. This is because they have a unique shape that allows them to replace natural teeth roots perfectly. We can also combine them with regular dental restorations like crowns and bridges so you won't notice the difference between your original tooth structure and these new pieces. Dental implants do not decay because there's no need for food buildup inside of it, unlike regular replacement dentures that tend to get clogged up over time by particles from foods containing sugar or starch.
The benefits of having a tooth replaced with an implant vs. other options like dentures or bridges.
Dental implants can last a lifetime, and your overall oral health usually determines your lifespan. The implant will not decay or break like regular tooth fillings because it's made from titanium with an outer coating of porcelain. This means that no food residue will get stuck inside, leading to bacteria growth and infections in other teeth around them. After all, pain is never fun! Dental implants are also more stable than bridges and false teeth, so you won't need extra support while they're being worn either. You'll have fewer visits back to us for checkups if we do everything right the first time around!
