Besides being embarrassing, missing teeth can cause speaking and chewing difficulties. Missing teeth can also weaken your bite and increase the risks of oral health problems, such as infection. If you’re looking for an attractive permanent way to replace missing teeth, implant restoration may be right for you. Dental implants involves placing a titanium steel implant into your jawbone. As your bone and gum tissues grow around the implant, it fuses with the rest of your jawbone. A dental crown is then attached to the implant to restore your smile.
Compared to conventional dentures, dental implants offer superior stability, durability, and natural looking results. In fact, many patients are surprised at how natural an implanted tooth looks and feels. This is because unlike conventional dentures, implants don’t move or shift around. Besides offering amazing support, implants strengthen nearby teeth and help to maintain the overall structure of your jawbone. Once placed, implants can last for many years with proper care.
