What dental implants can do for you
Dental implants are the closest tooth replacement to having natural teeth. The dental implant screw is implanted in your jaw during a simple in-office procedure. This screw will function as the “root” of your missing tooth. Following the implantation is a healing period, during which the bone will fill in around the implant screw, locking it in place. After the area has healed and your implant is fully embedded, it will be capped with a beautiful implant crown, giving you a new tooth!
There are many reasons why people prefer dental implants to rebuild their smiles. Consider that dental implants:
- Look just like natural teeth, because the dental implant crown material is light reflective and is virtually indistinguishable from natural tooth enamel
- Are completely stable, because they are embedded in the bone, making it so that they will never move around
- Provide convenience, because they are a permanent part of your smile and you never have to take them out
- Are easy to maintain, because you simply brush and floss them along with your natural teeth
Dental implants are also highly successful because they are made of biocompatible materials that your body won’t reject. In fact, they are the most successful surgical implant, boasting a success rate of over 95 percent, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
