The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically attached to the jawbone. When dental implants are in place, it is possible for us to mount replacement teeth onto them. Dental implants are a great solution for tooth replacement. They provide incredibly stable support for artificial teeth. If you have dentures or bridges mounted to your dental implants, you will find that they won’t slip or shift in your mouth.
If you want artificial teeth that look and feel natural, dental implants are the perfect choice. While dental implants are more expensive than other tooth restoration options, they more than make up for it with their success rate. We offer two types of dental implants, the first being endosteal implants. These are surgically implanted directly onto the jawbone. When the surrounding gum tissue heals, a second surgery is performed. We then connect a post to the implant and following that we will connect an artificial tooth to the post. We also offer subperiosteal implants; these implants are a metal frame that is fitted onto the jawbone below the gum tissue. As your gums heal, the frame will become fixed to the jawbone.
Who Needs Dental Implants?
If you are missing one or more teeth, you are the perfect candidate for dental implants. If you are looking for the best way to replace missing teeth, dental implants are a strong contender. When you have implants, you will find they are almost indistinguishable from the real thing, making you more confident and comfortable with your smile. To be a suitable candidate for dental implants, you will need to commit to frequent and thorough dental implant maintenance. Furthermore, if you are someone who finds bridges or dentures are simply not possible; for example, you have sore spots in your mouth that prevent you from using dentures, dental implants are the perfect choice.
