What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants begin with titanium posts designed to mimic that natural roots of teeth. The implant is surgically placed in the jaw bone and onto it, an artificial replacement tooth, called a crown, is placed. A single dental implant can be used to replace one missing tooth, or multiple dental implants can be used to secure a denture for a full arch of missing teeth.
Who Needs Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the most natural way to replace missing teeth. Dental implants patients offer many advantages over traditional missing tooth replacement options. Implants help stabilize jawbone tissue, prevent change of your mouth shape and reduce the risk of gum disease and additional tooth loss. Dental implants promote a natural bite and allow patients to enjoy an unrestricted diet.
People with missing teeth are potential candidates for dental implants. If you’ve lost a tooth after extensive decay due to periodontal disease, you will be left with an empty space in your mouth. More than a cosmetic concern, an empty space in the mouth can cause further tooth decay and bone loss. Implants help stabilize the tissue more than other tooth replacement options.
