Whether you’re missing one or more teeth or you have a denture that keeps slipping and falling out, dental implants can correct a variety of dental problems. They do not require surrounding teeth to be compromised and are semi-permanent in nature. Implants can last for several years when placed correctly. They are made out of strong titanium, which is able to withstand a lot of pressure and force.
A dental implant is a titanium post. This post is inserted deep into the bone of the jaw and given several months to heal fully. As the implant heals, the bone around the post will bond and fuse with the metal. This creates a secure and strong anchor for which crowns, bridge work and dentures can be made and placed on top. Implants are a great alternative to other procedures and can help to create a full and realistic-looking smile.
Because not everyone is a candidate for implants, a consultation appointment is necessary in determining if it’s the right choice for you. However, the majority of patients who both want and need implants can safely have the surgery done and experience a high success rate while the implant heals. You can have one or many implants placed at the same time and according to your own oral health needs. Your new implants are a long-term solution to many dental problems that you might have faced in the past.
