Dental implants are used in conjunction with crowns to fill gaps caused by one or more missing teeth. Implants can also be used with partial or full dentures to add more support and stability. They serve as replacement tooth roots for missing teeth.
Implants are titanium screws inserted into the jaw where a missing tooth was. A tooth-like crown is usually attached to the top of the implant to give the appearance of a full set of teeth. Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth and they are quickly absorbed by your gum tissue that results in a stable, durable and comfortable tooth restoration treatment.
Implants offer many advantages including:
Improved appearance. Dental implants give off the same look and feel as your natural teeth so they are not readily noticeable. look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
Improved speech. Implants are secure so that you can speak clearly.
Improved comfort. Implants feel like the rest of your natural teeth and they become integrated into your gum tissue. These make implants comfortable and greatly reduces the risk of allergic reactions.
Easier eating. Dental implants are stable, permanent and function like your own teeth. This allows you to eat without the fear of embarrassing denture mishaps or pain.
Improved self-esteem. Dental implants restore your smile before tooth loss. They take away embarrassing gaps left from missing teeth. You won’t have to hide your smile and you can feel better about yourself.
Improved oral health. Unlike bridges, dental implants don't require alteration of the surrounding teeth. With your natural teeth intact, your oral health is better. Implants also allow for easier access between teeth which makes it easier for regular oral hygiene.
Durability. Because implants are attached to your bone, they are permanent. They typically last many years and some patients with good oral hygiene may have their implants last a lifetime.
Convenience. Unlike removable dentures, implants are permanent and don’t come out. You don’t have to worry about embarrassing mishaps or removal for regular cleaning.
