People’s confidence about their teeth affects how they feel about themselves…both personally and professionally. Replicating the natural function and appearance of the lost teeth can be very difficult to accomplish, making it that much more important to have an experienced cosmetic dentist working on your teeth.
If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to regain the ability to eat virtually anything and smile with comfort and confidence, there is good news! Dental implants are natural-looking replacements for missing teeth that provide the same function as your natural tooth root. Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost your tooth!
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a small, sturdy, titanium post that functions as the root structure for a natural tooth. Titanium metal is used because of its compatibility with bone and oral tissues. The process involves the placement of a titanium post into the jawbone where a tooth is missing. After the bone has healed with the titanium, the implant can then hold a crown, bridge or over-denture just like roots hold natural teeth in place. Dental implants also help preserve facial structure and prevent bone deterioration, which occurs when teeth are missing. Implants are very durable and under proper conditions can last a lifetime.
