What are dental implants?
Our team describes dental implants as titanium metal posts that are placed into the bone of the jaw to function as a natural tooth. The metal post acts as a tooth root replacement and can be restored over the top in a myriad of ways. Dental implants can replace one tooth with the placement of a dental crown over the abutment, or many teeth if it is used as an anchor for a dental bridge or a stabilizer for full dentures. The versatility of the dental implant makes it a desirable choice for patients. Along with being a great solution for different situations, it is also a permanent option. The success rate of dental implants is extremely high. This is because it is inserted into the bone and helps stimulate bone growth through osseointegration. When the bone wraps around the implant, it allows it to stay permanently within the smile and provides a sturdy foundation for the restoration. While dental implants are relatively expensive when compared to other options, they will hold their value over a lifetime, making it a smart investment for patients serious about restoring their smiles.
