If you’re looking for the comfortable, permanent and retaining the feel of regular teeth, dental implant can serve you. They even look and act like natural teeth, so you can brush, floss, eat whatever you want, and speak without impediment. Making dental implants an effective permanent solution to the loss of teeth.
Unlike dentures, dental implants connect to your jawbone to help support a dental prosthesis. Through a process known as osseointegration the titanium, ceramics, and other components of the dental implant form a bond with the bone of your jaw or skull, which means that the implant is firmly anchored and won’t move. This means that dental implants don’t just look like normal teeth, they act like them, even going so far as to integrate into your jaw or skull like natural teeth do. While implants can be used to support dentures, most forms of dental implants are permanent, and can be treated, cleaned, and repaired like any other tooth.
Alternatively, dental implants can be used for a Fixed Denture, where a patient’s dentures are fixed/bolted to the implants through titanium components. Only the dentist can remove this from the mouth and not the patient. As the patient, you take care of your “fixed teeth” just like your natural teeth.
If you want to replace unpleasant spaces and enjoy good function for the longest possible time, you need to consider implants. A few of the advantages of dental implants are that they:
• Do not affect healthy teeth on either side.
• Offer many more years of durability.
• Play an important role in preserving normal health of the jaw bone and joints.
• Prevent bone loss and keep your face looking healthier and more youthful.
• Dramatically improve stability, function, health and bone retention for denture wearers.
