Dental Implants

Over time there are a number of factors that can contribute to tooth loss. Daily wear and tear, physical trauma, or disease and infection can all result in tooth decay. When someone loses a tooth or several teeth, this can bring about unwanted changes to their appearance, negatively effecting their confidence and self-esteem. In addition, it can lead to further oral health complications. With the advent of implant dentistry, however, those who are missing teeth no longer have to accept a lifetime of embarrassment of inconvenience.

Dental implants are strong, durable, titanium posts that are rooted in the jawbone to serve as anchors for replacement synthetic teeth. These dental restorations improve the look of the smile, provide structure for the face, and prevent further infection. Below is an overview of dental implants, for more detailed information we invite you to explore our implant dentistry section.

What are Dental Implants?

Implants are small, titanium screws that are surgically implanted in the jawbone to provide a base for the placement of synthetic teeth, such as dentures or dental bridges. They can be used to replace a single tooth, or all of the teeth. Dental implants are the most comprehensive and durable restorative dentistry treatment available for patients with missing teeth.

Consider dental implants as investments in your dental future, with far less risk than most other investment ventures. Dental implant has a higher than ninety percent successes rate, and with a bit more dental implant information, you'll know how to lower that risk even more.

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to support a restoration for a missing tooth or teeth, helping to stop or prevent jaw bone loss. The success or failure of implants depends on the health of the person receiving it, drugs which impact the chances of osseointegration and the health of the tissues in the mouth. Thank you for sharing!

I have a really good friend that lost a couple teeth in a car accident. After going to his dentist, he was told that he should go see a all-on-4 dental implant specialist. He's a little nervous because he doesn't know much about implants. I'll definitely show him this post-- you really clear up a lot of the basics. I had no idea that the implants are screwed into your jaw bone, for example. Hopefully my friend can find a good clinic to take care of him!
