Dental implants are used to replace a missing tooth (or teeth) and look and feel so natural that you may forget which tooth it replaced! your teeth affect your confidence and how you feel personally and professionally. you might hide your smile because of spaces between your teeth or perhaps your dentures don't feel secure and you may have difficulty chewing with them. a dental implant is a root device, usually made of titanium, that is used in dentistry to replace missing teeth.
Most dental implants today are endosseous implants that appear similar to an actual tooth root and are placed in the bone. The bone of the jaw osseointegrates with a titanium post. "Osseointegration" refers to the fusion of the implant surface with surrounding bone. A tooth-like restoration is then placed over the implant.
You may be a candidate if you have good oral health, adequate bone in your jaw and healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease. No one will ever know you have replaced a tooth! The best way to find out if implants are a good option for you is to simply ask your dentist at your next check-up!
So there is a reason to be excited and be proud of that smile. And you can be even more excited as more insurance companies are now covering the dental implants options. Please call us or visit our dental office for more information!
