When it comes to restoring missing teeth, there is nothing quite like implant dentistry. Dental implants are a newer advancement in dental technology that allows your dentist to replace teeth and give you a smile that looks, feels and functions just like a natural one. Due to the fact that dental implants are surgically attached to the patient’s jawbone, they are extremely secure and can last a lifetime with proper at-home and professional dental care. With dental implants, no dietary restrictions or adhesive pastes are necessary. Patients can enjoy all of their favorite foods and speak more properly. Dental implants can also be useful for improving a patient’s appearance. Many report that they even appear younger due to implants making their face appear more full.
Dental implants are actually comprised of the parts, which include the implant, the abutment and the prosthetic. The implant is a small titanium post which is surgically attached to the jaw. The jaw bone will bond with the titanium, creating a strong and permanent foundation. Once healed, the abutment is then attached to the visible portion of the dental implant. The prosthetic is then secured to the dental implant using the abutment. Prosthetics for dental implants can be dental crowns, bridgework, partials and even dentures depending upon your ultimate smile goal, oral health, and budget.
Dental implants are changing the way those with missing teeth are living their lives, allowing them to enjoy all their favorite foods, improve their appearance and not worry whether their teeth will stay in or not.
