Dental implants are very similar to natural teeth. They consist of a tiny titanium post that will fill the role that is played by the tooth's natural root. The titanium implant is designed specifically to become securely attached and integrated into the jaw bone, which is why the implant is so stable and durable. Placed permanently on top of the implant post is a tooth that is constructed in a very similar manner to a traditional crown. This will look and feel just like a natural tooth...so much so that most people can't even tell a difference in their own mouths!
People who have missing teeth are choosing more and more now to have those missing teeth replaced with implants. Dental implants are quickly becoming the standard of care in tooth replacement simply because they are the closest thing to a natural tooth.
If you have missing teeth and are considering having them replaced with dental implants, you may find the following facts helpful:
Dental implants are built to last a lifetime. They should not need to be replaced once they are put in the mouth, unlike many other tooth replacement options.
Dental implants don't move or slip around the mouth and they cannot be taken out unless done so by the dental implant professional.
Dental implants don't sacrifice the health of the teeth around the implant. Many times with a bridge or other prosthetics, the adjacent teeth need to be ground down in order to have the dental work fit and function properly. This is not the case with implants.
Dental implants encourage bone growth around the implant. Essentially, it will trick the mouth into believing a tooth is in its place so the bone will continue to grow.
Dental implants tend to have a very high success rate and are frequently thought to be the best treatment option for tooth replacement.
