If you are missing one or more teeth, it can be hard to look forward to another summer of candid photographs where you’re expected to show your smile. Luckily, there is an easy way to replace those missing teeth, so you can show off your smile confidently. Dental implants provide a robust solution that works for one tooth, a span, or a total replacement. They look great, and they’re permanent, which gives them an edge over other tooth replacement options we offer.
How Dental Implants Work
If you’ve never looked into implants before, the concept behind them is simple, but the technology that goes into manufacturing them is sophisticated. Replacement teeth made of high quality porcelain are modeled to fit your mouth and bite pattern, so you have a natural replacement for your missing tooth. Then, titanium anchors are placed to connect the dental implants to your jawbone for stability. The replacement teeth are fixed to the implant, so your natural gum tissue holds them in place. The result is a strong, permanent replacement for as many missing teeth as a patient needs.
Advantages to Dental Implants
Implants have several advantages over bridges and dentures:
· They never need to be replaced unless they are damaged. Other options have planned obsolescence after several years.
· They feel natural, and you can care for them like natural teeth.
· Dental implant placement procedures have a short recovery time.
· Eat all your favorite foods without worry.
