In today’s blog post, we’re going to give you a rundown on some of the basics on dental implants. From their many benefits, and the entire process of installing them. If you or someone you love are living with missing teeth, this blog post should be of particular interest to you.

What Do Dental Implants Do?

Dental implants can replace one missing tooth, or even many missing teeth. They can also be used to replace severely decayed teeth when other dental procedures fail. Dental implants are quite simply the best solution for replacing missing teeth.

Dental implants provide greater protection to your jawbone and surrounding teeth than dentures or bridges. Dental implants help keep your entire mouth healthy, ensuring you can continue speaking and eating in the same way you did before you lost your teeth.

Dental implants also bring stability to your mouth. They won’t slip around like ill-fitting dentures sometimes do. Our dental implants also look incredibly life-like, ensuring that no one but you and your dentist have to know it’s not a natural tooth. Our patients also say that our implants look and feel just like real teeth.

How Are Dental Implants Installed?

Dental implants are a titanium rod or screw which are used as an artificial replacement for a tooth root. We begin by making a small opening in your gums, and place the rod in your gums. Once the rod is embedded in your gums, it will begin to fuse with your jawbone.

After the rod is fused to your jawbone, it will safely act a root for your teeth. We can then place a false tooth on the rod. We offer teeth that are fixed in place or removable, depending on your needs. In addition, dental implants can be used to hold dentures in place securely.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants help to constantly stimulate your jaw bone, preserving the density and health of the bone. When you are missing teeth, your natural chewing can quickly deteriorate that natural shape of your jaw. Dental implants are replacements that can work just like natural teeth to support your teeth.

We can also use dental implants to hold dentures. These dentures are more secure, allowing for more naturally eating. It also helps maintain the shape and appearance of your jaw and face.

In general, dental implants will make you more comfortable when eating and speaking. In addition, it doesn’t require the reduction of any of your existing teeth. They are extremely durable, but also have a great realistic appearance.
