Worried about missing teeth and replacements that don’t look and feel natural? Dental implants are here to your rescue. No more worries about people staring at your not-so-natural-looking replacement teeth, no restrictions on the foods you love to eat and no more fear of prosthetics slipping away as you eat, laugh and smile in public. Dental implants offer you the confidence and ability to smile, chew, brush, floss and laugh just as you would with your natural teeth.
Essentially, a dental implant is a small post made of a metal such as titanium and is placed in the jawbone to act as a root for an artificial tooth. The implants are surgically placed and slowly integrate with the jawbone to become a part of your oral structure. Once this is accomplished, replacement teeth are fitted on top of the implant to give you natural-looking, naturally functioning replacement teeth. Implants are undoubtedly the most effective and durable tooth replacement option and are a choice for many patients who want a permanent way to restore their lost teeth.
The loss of teeth could occur due to trauma, decay, damage, gum disease, root canal infection, excessive wear and tear, and a number of other reasons. A lost tooth not only impacts the way you look but also creates functional problems. It can cause your bite to become irregular and can also lead the remaining natural teeth to drift out of their positions. Dental implants are an effective and proven remedy to combat the ill-effects of tooth loss and to help improve your quality of life in a natural-looking and naturally-functioning way.
