What you need to know about implants
These implants are replacements for the roots of a tooth. A dental surgical specialist connects an implant to a permanent or temporary replacement tooth (i.e. dentures, bridgework or crowns). Dental professionals make your replacement tooth to match the rest of your mouth, and most people can’t even tell the difference.
Some of the advantages include:
Help prevent bone loss
One major reason patients choose dental implants is because of their ability to reduce bone loss in the jaw. Dental implants help stabilize the bone, which supports the shape and functionality of your jaw bone.
Strong, durable and long-lasting
While some forms of false teeth attachment require new replacements every 15 years, implants are extremely durable. Made with titanium or titanium alloy, dental implants are safe and generally won’t require expensive or frequent replacements.
Implants are remarkably easy to maintain. Just regularly see your dentist and adhere to basic daily oral hygiene and you will have clean, beautiful teeth.
Anchored in the jaw bone, dental implants are invisible from the outside of the mouth. Dental implants are a great way to permanently improve your smile without anyone being able to tell they are implants.
Implants are one of several options available to replace missing teeth. Talk to your dentist about all the options available to you.
