Why Dental Implants?

Posted .

If your missing teeth persuade you to feel embarrassed or you’ve discovered that it’s more difficult eat and speak and the thought of dentures sound disagreeable, know this: there’s a solution. One choice is dental implants.

Dental implants are well-built, fantastic replacement teeth. They are made up of dental crowns and titanium posts which are carefully implanted into your jawbone.

Little by little, this titanium post combines with the surrounding tissue of the jawbone, narrowing the space around it and intensifying its bond so that the implant can last a lifetime. This process is called osseointegration, which plainly means “combines with the bone.” This process is a reason why dental implants are one of the largest innovations in dentistry in the past 4 decades.

Another benefit to consider is that dental implants can be modified to fit the exact qualifications of your mouth, creating the perfect smile.

It is imperative to take care of your missing teeth soon, and here’s why: if you wait for too long, your bite pattern may gradually shift out of position. It may also create a sunken appearance in the face and diminish your jaw strength over time.
