What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into the jawbone to support replacement teeth or a bridge. The implants are made of titanium or other materials that are compatible with the body, and are designed to fuse with the bone over time. This provides a stable and durable foundation for replacement teeth that look and function like natural teeth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
There are many benefits to choosing dental implants as a tooth replacement option, including:
Improved Appearance: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, providing a seamless and natural appearance.
Restored Functionality: Dental implants restore the ability to chew and speak properly, allowing you to eat your favorite foods and speak with confidence.
Long-Lasting Results: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a long-term investment in your oral health.
Bone Health: Dental implants stimulate the jawbone, helping to prevent bone loss and preserving the structure of your face.
Convenience: Dental implants are a permanent solution, eliminating the need for removable dentures or bridges.
Dental Implant Procedure
The dental implant procedure typically involves multiple visits over the course of several months. During the first visit, the dental implant is placed into the jawbone and allowed to heal and fuse with the bone. Once the implant has fully integrated with the bone, an abutment is placed onto the implant, which connects the implant to the replacement tooth or bridge. Finally, the replacement tooth or bridge is attached to the abutment, completing the restoration process.
