Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a tooth replacement option for those who have lost their teeth. They take the place of missing teeth and help you maintain your oral health. These dental prosthetics, are made out of titanium and can be used to replace one or more teeth. Implants work by fusing with the jawbone so that they become stable in the mouth without moving around as dentures would do. It is a great tooth replacement option because they offer many benefits such as being permanent, natural-looking, comfortable, and long-lasting!
How do implants work?
Dental implants typically have three parts: the post, the abutment, and the prosthetic crown. They can be used in single tooth replacements, multiple arch replacements or even to support a full denture. The implants are surgically placed into your jawbone or gums by a prosthodontist or dentist with general anesthesia in a procedure that takes about one and a half hours. The implant is then fixed to the area with a titanium screw.
Dental implants are one of the most effective and natural-looking ways to replace missing teeth. It replaces missing tooth roots with titanium posts that act as anchors for replacement crowns or other prosthetics.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental Implants give you back what we all want: your smile! Missing teeth due to injury or tooth loss is an unfortunate occurrence for many people every year. They allow us to replace missing teeth by providing support for artificial replacements so that they may look more natural like real ones did before being lost. They also help keep oral muscles and tissues intact since there’s not as much pressure put on them when you bite down because the dental implants will hold up better than dentures would if they were just one piece of plastic.
Many people who have dental implants say it feels like their new tooth has always been there! The implant acts much like a real tooth root and it will feel like the tooth is your own. Dental implants can make you smile again!
