The Only Permanent Tooth Replacement
A dental implant will replace a missing tooth and can last a lifetime with good oral hygiene. Dental implants are an excellent choice for patients with one or more missing teeth and are also used to support dentures and bridges for a better fitting, longer lasting result. The best thing about a dental implant is that it will never need to be replaced or updated as long as you care for it properly.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a titanium post that your dentist surgically places in your jawbone to act as a prosthetic tooth root. On top of the post is an abutment, which allows your dentist to add a prosthetic, like a crown, bridge, or denture, for an extremely secure and natural-looking result.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
- A Dental Implant is the only permanent way to replace a tooth. The titanium post placed in your jawbone will eventually fuse with the bone tissue and become a permanent part of your body. Because titanium is highly biocompatible, the chance of an adverse reaction is very slim.
- The success rate is high with a Dental Implant, and the results look and feel more natural than any other type of tooth replacement. You won’t even be able to tell the difference when you look closely in the mirror.
- Dental implants are extremely versatile. With modern technology, an implant can be placed almost anywhere in the mouth where the bone structure is robust and healthy enough to support it. A combination of 4 to 6 implants can be used as a base for full dentures, providing a more stable and comfortable fit.
