Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants
Dental implants are the closest thing to having natural and healthy teeth. These fixtures can radically rejuvenate a smile, as they are designed to permanently reconstruct lost or damaged teeth.
What Are Dental Implants?
In most cases, a dental implant is a titanium post or frame implanted where the root of a tooth would normally sit. These structures sit below the gum line and form a new foundation for replacement teeth. Once the implants are installed, one or more artificial teeth are then affixed to the frames, essentially replacing a lost or damaged tooth completely.
Benefits of Dental Implants
A short time after the procedure, implants offer a very stable and secure fit. Part of the reason implants are so effective is due to Osseo integration — a process in which the bone grows and fuses to the implant material.
This secure fit allows your dentist to rebuild the natural contours of your mouth, restoring the function of your teeth, revitalizing your appearance and rebuilding your confidence. You’ll be able to eat, talk and smile again without worry.
Exploring Your Implant Options
In order to be successful, implants rely on the health and density of the jawbone. Candidates for dental implants must possess a healthy bone system to facilitate the bone fusion, which locks dental implants into place.
Additionally, the installation of dental implants is a significant surgical procedure. As such, candidates must be in overall good health and have strong immune systems to recover well and allow the implants to set firmly and permanently.
