Many adults think dental implants are the next best thing to having natural teeth, and they might be right. When you lose your teeth due to tooth decay, a disease, or a traumatic injury, your self-esteem and smile can take a hit. Strong, durable, and aesthetically attractive, dental implants help restore the simple confidence that comes with having natural teeth.
A dental implant is a titanium post that's surgically anchored to your jawbone, beneath the gum line. Essentially, it’s the root of your new tooth. Your mouth will need a few weeks to heal after the post is in place. Once your mouth has fully recovered, your dentist will mount the replacement tooth on the post. The replacement tooth is called a crown. The implants fuse to your jawbone, which makes them incredibly steady and secure.
These posts also help other dental work, like bridges and dentures, stay solidly attached to your jaw.
On top of looking, feeling, and functioning like your natural teeth, dental implants offer the following advantages:
If you’re missing a single tooth or a couple of teeth, you could be a great dental implant candidate. Good candidates have healthy gums, and their jaws are finished growing. Dental implants are not for children but are an excellent solution for adults.
You may also be a prime candidate for implants if you are ready to replace a bridge or partial dentures, or if you’re tired of having dentures that slip. Men or women wanting a permanent, lifelong solution to ongoing dental work may be exceptional dental implant candidates. Wondering if dental implants are right for you? Meet with your dentist to ask questions and learn more about your options.
