What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are an option for replacing missing teeth. Regardless of if you are missing one tooth or all of your teeth, implants may be the best bet for restoring your smile. Dental implants are a biocompatible titanium post that is inserted into the jawbone to replace the missing tooth root. While healing, the bone and post bond together in a process called osseointegration. Once this happens, the dentist places a custom-made implant onto the post. Depending on the patient’s needs, the implant may resemble a crown, a dental bridge, a partial denture, or a full denture.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth and reviving your smile. If one properly cares for their implants, they can last a lifetime, providing a natural-looking and strong replacement. The design of dental implants is meant to imitate those of natural teeth in their look, feel, and function. Implants also do not cause any problems with the neighboring natural teeth. So, one does not need to worry about the implant causing issues with the natural teeth around it. Getting dental implants can greatly improve one’s oral health, restoring their smile and the use of their teeth.
