Restore Full Function With Dental Implants
Dental implants are used to restore full function and beauty for missing teeth. Properly placed dental implants will look and feel like your natural teeth, and last for many years.
Uses Of Dental Implants
Dental implants are most commonly used to replace a single missing tooth. However, dental implants may also be used to anchor a bridge that will replace multiple teeth, as well as to support dentures so that they are held firmly in place and won’t slip or move around when you talk or chew.
Dental implants are made up of three parts:
- a titanium post, which is surgically placed into your jaw bone to replace the tooth root;
- a titanium abutment or container, which sits just below the gum line and will anchor your new tooth crown;
- and a ceramic crown, which is made of durable, tooth-colored material and looks and feels like your own natural tooth.
Advantages Of Dental Implants
A dental implant is the closest substitute to a natural tooth. When properly placed, the dental implant will fuse to the bone and make itself a natural part of your jaw. It isn’t removable, and you can expect to eat, smile, talk and brush normally.
A dental implant will give you superior function. Dental implants or implant-supported dentures will allow you to chew normally, while removable dentures will only allow you to put 5% or 10% of the amount of pressure on them that you might normally use when you eat.
A dental implant is long-lasting. Dental implants have a documented success rate of more than 97%, and will last you for many, many years, far beyond the life span of a bridge or denture.
A dental implant preserves your remaining teeth. You don’t need to cut down adjacent teeth, or use them to support your replacement tooth. They won’t drift or move, because the implant is supported just like a regular tooth.
