Dental implants are one of the options available to our patients who are missing one or more teeth. If you want to replace missing teeth and are curious about dental implants, you may be interested to know some of the advantages of this type of restoration:
- Looks and feels natural
- Optimal durability and strength
- Require the same care as your other teeth
Dental implants replace the missing tooth root, as well as the upper, visible portion of the tooth. Tooth root replacement results in a sturdier, stronger replacement tooth. The root also promotes the density and health of the bone in which it is implanted. The top of the dental implant can be affixed to a dental crown, to replace a single missing tooth; or to a dental bridge, to replace multiple teeth.
Dental implants are also one of the longest-lasting ways to replace teeth. Dental implants can last many years, with the potential to last a lifetime. Good oral hygiene, including flossing and regular dental visits, is key to promoting the health of the gums and tissue that support the dental implant.
