If you are self-conscious because you have missing teeth, wear dentures that are uncomfortable or don't want to have good tooth structure removed to make a bridge, dental implants may be an option for you.
Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth and are designed to blend in with your other teeth. They are an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile. Dental implants are root-like structures made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. They are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for the replacement of missing teeth. After a period of healing when bone will attach to the surface of the implant your dentist will customize the new artificial tooth/teeth.
Most patients find that a dental implant is secure, stable and a good replacement for their own tooth. If you are interested in dental implants, it's a good idea to discuss it carefully with your dentist first.
Latest technologies and the development of new materials have resulted in much faster and predictable outcomes for these procedures.
