A dental implant is an artificial tooth root used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. Dental implants can be used to support crowns, bridges or dentures. The number of implant required depends on the type of restoration and the the amount of bone available. The success of dental implants is based on “osseointegration,” which is a strong bonding of titanium and other materials to the surrounding bone. This allows the new replacement tooth (or teeth) to not only have a very strong, stable, and long-lasting base, but also to enjoy all the comfort, functionality, and beauty of healthy teet.
Dentistry offers options for tooth replacement that not only look great but also restore the natural function of teeth. In many cases dental implants are the best option for replacing a missing tooth. The implant itself will take the place of the absent root. After a period of healing a crown is designed that attaches to the implant. The end result is a restoration that is as close as possible to having your own tooth back. Scheduling a consultation is the best way to find out the best avenues for corrective dental procedures right for you.
Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.
Dental implants offer a secure alternative for people who have lost teeth, who have diseased or failing teeth, or who wear dentures. You may have been told that dentures are your only option, when in fact dental implants can offer a fantastic solution that will give you back your smile and your confidence. With this technique, the adjacent natural teeth remains untouched. They can also increase your comfort by eliminating loose fitting complete and partial dentures.
