What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a wonderful option for patients who are experiencing tooth loss, have severe decay, or have had trauma to the mouth. They can be used for a number of different purposes. For example, dental implants are often used to replace one tooth or multiple teeth or in conjunction with bridges and dentures. The process is rather involved and includes placing an artificial tooth root into the jawbone below the gumline. After this part of the treatment, the area needs to heal for approximately 4-6 months to ensure the artificial root is fusing properly with the jawbone and the treatment is successful. Once the implant is deemed successful, an artificial tooth is placed on top, such as a dental crown or implant-supported dentures.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are extremely popular and often recommended because of the numerous benefits they provide to patients. Dental implants are a permanent solution for tooth loss, and if treated and cared for properly, implants can last a lifetime. Dental implants also blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. They are easy to care for and only require brushing and flossing to clean. It is important to maintain your regular hygiene examination appointments after treatment. Patients often comment that their lives are changed following implant treatment because they are able to eat their favorite foods without difficulty.
