What Is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants use a titanium post to secure a prosthetic tooth in place. The post functions as the new root for the tooth and is screwed into the jaw bone. This gives the new tooth stability and permanency. Dental implant posts can be used to create a singular new tooth by adding a dental crown or may be used as part of a dental bridge or to secure dentures.
What Is the Procedure Process?
Dental implant surgery can begin once the area where the missing tooth was located is healed. If the tooth was extracted or bone grafting was required, this must heal before the implant can be placed. The titanium post can be surgically inserted in one session. However, it can require up to four months to heal and adhere to the bone before it can be completed with a permanent dental crown.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
When it comes to replacing lost teeth, dental implants offer the closest resemblance to natural teeth in function and aesthetics. These prosthetic teeth can be used to replace one or several teeth, or they can be used for implant-secured dentures. The high success rate for dental implants make them a wise choice. While they may be initially more expensive than a bridge or dentures alone, they can last for decades and offer higher stability for replacing lost teeth. Plus, they can inhibit bone sorption and protect your face and jaw from excessive bone loss.
