What are dental implants?
If you are missing one, a few, or all of your teeth, then dental implants are the right solution for you! Dental implants are essentially artificial high-tech tooth roots and serve as a foundation for bridges or crowns which replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a post made of titanium that is embedded in the jawbone just below the gum line. Dental implants are very durable and do not become loose like dentures, and they actually look, feel, and act like real, natural teeth. They do not need support from surrounding teeth as they can exist independently on their own – this makes them a better quality alternative than other available options. When properly cared for, a dental implant can literally last for the rest of the patient’s lifetime. They are now the gold standard when it comes to needing a tooth replacement thanks to their superb advantages over older solutions that used to be commonplace. Patients can lose their teeth for a variety of reasons including disease, gingivitis, decay, or injury. Whatever reason you lost your teeth you can be rest assured that your smile can be restored and beautiful once again.
