What You Should Know about Dental Implants

what you should know about dental implantsDental implants are considered by many to be the best way to replace missing teeth. When an entire tooth is lost, the root and crown are lost, and this can put you at risk of developing gum disease and bite misalignments. But a dental implant will help preserve your oral health and restore a natural, healthy-looking appearance.

The implant itself is composed of a titanium post that is integrated directly into the jawbone. This serves as a substitute for the tooth root. It fuses with the bone through a process known as osseointegration, and this provides a sturdy foundation for your new tooth. An abutment is placed on top of the implant that will connect the implant with the dental crown placed on top. Your dental crown can be custom-designed just for you so that it blends in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.

Implants can be used to support a single crown, but they can also be used for an implant-supported dental bridge or dentures containing multiple teeth. Dental implants are the best thing you will get next to your healthy, natural teeth. With dental implants, you will be able to retain your natural facial structure, and your smile will not change in the slightest. You will be able to speak, eat, laugh, and smile just like you used to without having to worry about whether or not your restoration looks natural or not. And with proper care and maintenance, a dental implant can last a lifetime.
