Are Dental Implants for You?

May 29, 2017

When teeth are missing, dental implants are an excellent choice as they appear, fit and feel like natural teeth. Dental implants are tooth roots made of titanium cylinders that are placed in the jaw where there are missing teeth. Over time, the bone and titanium root bond together to form a strong foundation for the replacement teeth. Dental implants are an effective, long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, decayed teeth or chronic dental problems. Dental implants can replace one tooth, several teeth or when needed, a full mouth restoration.

DENTAL IMPLANTS TYPICALLY HAVE THREE PARTS:

1) The implant: A titanium screw that is permanently attached to the jaw and serves as a root for your new teeth.
2) The abutment: A connector that supports and holds a tooth or set of teeth.
3) The crown (or cap): The crown is usually made of zirconium or porcelain for durability and aesthetics.

The benefits of dental implants are many. They improve your appearance where facial structure is preserved and no longer sunken in. Your ability to eat is improved along with being able to speak more clearly. Because missing teeth may cause embarrassment, dental implants improve confidence and self-esteem.

Dental implants are also durable and will last for many years. They need no special attention as they require the same care as your natural teeth. Keep to your home care routine of brushing and flossing as well as your regular exams and cleanings.
