What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a synthetic tooth root that can be used in combination with a dental crown to create a perfect tooth replacement.
Each dental implant is created with a special titanium alloy that can fuse directly with your bone just like your natural tooth root. When a patient loses a tooth, the jawbone underneath can start to deteriorate. Dental implants are the only restorative option for missing teeth that replaces both the tooth root and the surface area of your tooth.
The Benefits of a Dental Implant
- Dental implants provide all the same functionality that you enjoyed before your tooth loss.
- Dental implants support the jaw bone and prevent deterioration, keeping your face looking younger and more beautiful.
- The porcelain crowns used to restore a dental implant look beautiful and feel natural. No one will be able to tell that you once lost your tooth.
- Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. Dental implants can also be used to secure implant supported dentures.
