Dental implants have become an increasingly popular solution for missing or damaged teeth as technology advances. Unlike dentures, which can be uncomfortable and require frequent adjustments, dental implants provide a permanent, natural-looking replacement for missing teeth.
What are Dental Implants?
How are dental implants placed?
Dental implant placement is typically performed in several stages. First, the implant is surgically placed into the jawbone. The surrounding bone can heal and fuse with the implant over several months, creating a strong and stable foundation. Once the implant has fused with the bone, an abutment is attached to the implant, which serves as a connection point for the replacement tooth or bridge. Finally, the replacement tooth or bridge is attached to the abutment, completing the restoration.
Most people with good overall health and sufficient jawbone density are good candidates for
dental implants. However, individuals who smoke or have certain medical conditions that affect
bone healing may not be suitable candidates.
If you are considering dental implants, your dentist will thoroughly evaluate them to determine
whether they are the right choice.
Dental implants provide a natural-looking and long-lasting solution for missing or damaged
teeth. Proper care and maintenance can provide a lifetime of benefits, including improved
appearance, function, and oral health. If you are considering dental implants, talk to your dentist
