What Can Dental Implants Do?
Dental implants are a secure, stable, and natural-looking way to replace teeth you have lost. A dental implant can be used to replace a single missing tooth, or two or more implants can be used to support multiple crowns, or even an entire arch of upper or lower replacement teeth (dental implant-supported bridges and dentures).
A dental implant is a very small titanium fixture that serves as a replacement for the root portion of a missing tooth. The implant post rests beneath your gum line in the bony socket that used to hold your missing tooth and acts as an anchor for the replacement tooth. A lifelike dental crown is attached to the post and is the only part of this tooth-replacement system that is visible in your mouth.
Bridges and full and partial dentures are the most common restoration used for patients missing natural teeth. Although removable tooth replacement options are usually the most inexpensive, they can be uncomfortable and inconvenient.
Here are three reasons why you might choose dental implants as your tooth replacement solution.
Dental Implants are the Next Best Thing to Natural Teeth
Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants form a permanent attachment to your jaw bone through a process called osseointegration. Just like your natural teeth, the implant forms a solid attachment with the bone in your jaw. This is because they are made of titanium, a metal that has a unique ability to fuse to living bone. The dental crowns attached to your dental implant is visually indistinguishable from your natural teeth, creating a natural look and feel. Dental implants allow you to eat, speak, and smile with complete confidence because they will never slip or shift like removable dentures often do.
Dental Implants are a Long-Term Solution
Dental implants provide a truly reliable, permanent solution for restoring your smile. Unlike the removable tooth replacement options that may need to be replaced over time, they are designed to last a lifetime, are crafted to be durable and to withstand the everyday wear and tear of chewing. Because dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that actually fuse to the existing bone in your jaw, they essentially become an extension of your body. That’s what makes this choice of tooth replacement the best long-term value.
Dental implants Will Give You Your Confidence Back
You will no longer have to worry that your teeth will fall out when you eat, talk, or smile. Implant-supported teeth allow you to eat, speak and smile with complete confidence because they will never slip or shift like removable dentures often do. Dental implants also maintain the contours of your face by preventing bone loss. When teeth are lost, the jawbones begin to deteriorate, almost immediately, leaving your face to sag and appear old and wrinkly. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that will also maintain the jaw bone structure allowing you to maintain the natural shape of your face. Dr. David Juliani takes special care to make your new dental implant crowns blend right in with your natural smile, so not even you will be able to tell which ones are not your natural teeth. With dental implants, you can truly achieve a beautiful smile and look your best once again!
