Dental implants are becoming more popular in today’s dental society for a number of reasons. Whenever a tooth is lost, the biting forces change and the teeth next to the space can shift. Also, opposing teeth may even be compromised by extruding into the open space, resulting in eventual tooth loss. Implants are titanium cylinders that are surgically placed in the jaw to serve as artificial roots. Attaching a replacement tooth to an implant allows us to avoid placing a bridge.
Benefits of Implants
With dental implants, you can have a beautiful smile without any invasive procedures. Dental crowns and bridges are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth – so securely fitted that they don’t move when chewing or speaking; additionally, dental implants are a great way to achieve the perfect smile. They improve chewing function and contribute towards preserving healthy teeth, which in turn gives you an attractive appearance with self-esteem that will make everyone notice your amazing grin!
Your tooth structure has two main sections, the root, and the crown. A dental implant replaces this entire section of your jaw with an anchor in order for you to have proper support against wear from things like eating hard foods or grinding your teeth during workouts! This process starts off by placing the implants where needed after which they will be covered up by gum tissue until it’s time that we attach them into place just under skin level using local anesthesia so there isn’t any significant discomfort at all. This procedure usually takes between 1 – 2 hours depending on how many teeth need to be replaced. The second step in installing a tooth is to attach an abutment. This part of the implant will support your crown and make it strong enough for chewing tasks.
Finally, the implant is given an impression of its own. A restoration crafted from abutment to crown will be ready for use immediately after completion; it’s comfortable and will leave you smiling nonstop! When your implant procedure is complete, it will be ready to use immediately. This means that the only thing holding back from going about normal activities is walking out our dental office.
