One of the greatest advances in modern dentistry is the dental implant. Dental implants are the most advanced solution for replacing lost teeth, and are one of the most popular. We want to explain a little about how dental implants work, and why they might be the best option for you.
The main reason why implants are such a powerful restoration option is that they go further than any other method in reconstructing the entire tooth. It all starts below the gums with the actual implant portion of the restoration. This is a biocompatible titanium post that is inserted directly into the jaw bone. Over the course of a few weeks, the bone heals around it and forms a secure hold, mimicking the function of a natural tooth’s root.
Once the post is fully integrated, it is ready to support a variety of different restorations. If a patient is missing a single tooth, a single crown can seamlessly replace it. Partial and complete dentures can be used to replace multiple or even all of your teeth if necessary. Many patients prefer implant-supported dentures because they don’t require any messy adhesive to stay firmly in place.
Dental implants make these restorations as natural and strong as possible. You will be able to eat all of your favorite foods and smile confidently once again.
