The key benefit of dental implants over other tooth replacement systems is that an implant connects directly to the jaw bone. It’s obviously not the same as the original connection, but functions just the same. When a tooth is lost, bone loss will eventually occur in that region because the root is no longer stimulating and stabilizing the bone. By using titanium–which biochemically joins to bone–to replace the root, you get a bond that more accurately replicates the one found in nature.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the most advanced therapy available to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are root replacements for missing teeth. Replacement teeth are created by your dentist and placed on the foundation provided by dental implants. Dental implant restorations generally look, feel and act like natural teeth.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants are made with materials well accepted by the body. Bone forms a natural mechanical bond with the dental implants. Dental implants provide a base for your dentist to build your replacement tooth or teeth.
