What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a fantastic permanent option for tooth replacement. They replace the entire tooth from root to crown with many positive health implications. First, a titanium post is inserted into the jaw to act as the root of the tooth. While healing is taking place, a crown is fabricated to match biological teeth in size, shape and color. It will then be permanently placed on the post to act as the crown of the tooth. Dental implants look and function just like natural teeth.
Why Choose Dental Implants
Dental implants can replace one or more missing teeth and if cared for properly, they can last a lifetime. Implants to not damage or disturb neighboring teeth like other replacement options and they do not move around in the mouth. They allow people to bite and chew naturally with all types of food and they do not hamper speech. With dental implants, it is not necessary to avoid certain foods.
Dental Implants Are Healthy
When adult teeth are lost, the jaw bone will slowly start to deteriorate. When dental implants are placed, it stimulates circulation in the jaw. The jaw bone actually fuses to the titanium post in a process called osseointegration. This action slows or even stops the bone deterioration associated with tooth loss.
