Dental implants require surgical procedure wherein the implant is positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line. This procedure allows your dentist to mount the replacement tooth where the missing tooth once was and left to heal for a set period of time. While it heals, the bone fuses to the implant, and the tooth-like crown is attached. The dental implant consists of a small, screw-shaped, titanium post that replaces the root of a missing tooth. Impants are enclosed by porcelain crowns that resemble and seem to look just like your old tooth.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Implant dentistry is expeditiously acquire demand. Dental implants have a high percentage rate of tooth-replacement and fix even the most severe problems associated with missing teeth. It is a safe and effective method for replacing missing teeth with new, natural-looking, long lasting teeth. Implants help secure the tooth-supporting bone that naturally languish when a tooth is lost, thereby sustaining the integrity of your facial structure.
Single-tooth replacements have the topmost success rate, and as a result aside from root canal treatments, a tooth implant is the best long-term investment for replacing a single tooth.
Multi-tooth replacements are very much alike to dental bridges and are frequently used when three or more teeth in a row are missing. A bridge essentially conjoins to a natural tooth, and an implant is recommended when the natural tooth becomes weak and starts to decay. With tooth implants, the enclosing teeth are not affected.
Implant-supported dentures restore entire jawlines together with the top or bottom (or both) rows. These artificial teeth bond into place so they will not displace around in the mouth or fall out during jaw movement.
