What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a titanium post made to act like a tooth root that is placed in the jawbone. A porcelain crown is placed on top of the implant, supported by a connecting abutment. A dental implant looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth. A Modern Solution For Missing Teeth

Dental implants serve a number of different purposes such as: supporting and stabilizing dentures, adding stability and support to dental bridges, and for partial or full-mouth teeth replacement.

The modern solution for missing teeth

With current advances in modern dental technology, dental implants have become the most preferred and most effective solution for replacing missing teeth. They are favored over dental bridges for single-tooth replacement, and dentures for multiple tooth-replacement.

Dental implants:

  • Look, feel and act like natural teeth. People usually don’t notice any difference
  • Are really the strongest and longest-lasting replacement for missing teeth
  • Let you smile, talk, chew and exert pressure just like with natural teeth
  • Don’t require alteration to the structure of adjacent teeth, as with dental bridges
  • Deter or prevent bone loss that occurs when teeth are lost which can lead to so many future problems
  • By filling the gap, they keep adjacent teeth stable and prevent bacteria from accumulating that would lead to gum disease

    Dental Implants Are A Better Alternative to Dentures

    For a long time now, dentures have been a popular teeth replacement option for many people because of their affordability. Also, the idea of having surgery may seem frightening to some.

    But today, there are many affordable options to replace missing teeth with dental implants and current advances in dental technology have made dental implant surgery minimally invasive.
