Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. They look, function, and feel like natural teeth and have been proven to last for many years. Our teeth are made of two parts. The part you see is called a crown, and it is covered with enamel; the part you don’t see inside the bone is called a root. The roots are what holds the tooth in place.
What Exactly are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is usually made of titanium. It is surgically anchored into your bone to hold a restoration. This restoration can be a replacement tooth (crown), a fixed bridge, or an overdenture.
The most common dental implant material is titanium. It is compatible with your body tissues and is similar to those materials used in orthopedic knee and hip implant surgery. Titanium is integrated into the bone and permanently anchors the implant.
Our Procedure for Dental Implants
During the initial consultation X-rays are taken to be sure that adequate bone, spacing, and gum tissue are available for the implant. In some cases, different kinds of x-rays might be necessary. The procedure itself is painless and quick but enough time has to be given for proper healing.
Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits ensure the long-term health of your dental implants.
