Dental implants are surgically permanent devices that replace the original root to provide structural support for tooth prosthetics. They are designed and constructed to last a lifetime. Anchoring the artificial roots beneath the gums, within the bone, allows them to fuse into the jawbone. Mounting a crown atop the implant creates a long-lasting and aesthetically natural looking smile. Many patients and dentists prefer dental implants, due to the nature of preventing atrophy in the jaw, while still retaining the functionality of natural teeth.
Advantages of Dental Implants
For longevity, a dental implant offers more benefits and provides easier maintenance than that of traditional tooth replacement methods. For instance, if gums recede around a bridge, a visible defect shows where the metal base is exposed. Also, assimilated bone can produce an unattractive smile. If the cement retaining a bridge deteriorates, bacteria can erode the anchoring teeth. Benefits of dental implants include:
- Simulates functionality and aesthetics of natural teeth
- Long-term solution for longevity
- Retains the shape of your natural facial structure
- Protects healthy bone
- Durability with proven results
- Eliminates cavities in implant-restored crown
