What are dental implants?
A dental implant is used to support one or more false teeth. It is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails. Just like a tooth root, it is placed into the jawbone.
The natural look and feel of implanted teeth have restored confidence and comfort for thousands of people suffering from tooth loss. Whether you are missing one or all of your teeth, dental implant procedures can restore a lasting smile and sense of well being.
Benefits of dental implants
- There is no better way to replace missing teeth than with the use of dental implants. Since they are properly set in the jaw they provide stability needed to make prosthetic teeth look natural.
- Implants are much better than dentures because they do not be removed for cleaning or when you go to bed. You clean implants the same way that you clean regular teeth and so long as you follow your dentist’s instructions regarding care your implants should last a long time.
- Dental implants, unlike dental bridges, do not depend on neighboring teeth for support. During the installation process, the dentist will not need to interfere with your other teeth. In fact, implants will provide added support for neighboring teeth which will keep them straighter for longer.
- Dental implants allow you to eat with ease, you can interact with others without feeling self-conscious and they also keep the overall shape of your face intact. In other words, dental implants will allow you to interact with the rest of the world with confidence.
