If you have one or more compromised teeth, you have several options in replacing them. Life with teeth compromised by decay or damage from an injury can be unbearable. Eating can be painful and social situations can be embarrassing. Many people in this circumstance will seek for ways to replace multiple teeth. One of the most popular and effective long-term solutions is dental implants.
Dental implants are changing the face of restorative dentistry. They offer the most natural-feeling dental restorations and can last a lifetime if properly cared for. You can have a natural, strong bite again, not to mention a bright, confident smile.
The secret of dental implants is that, unlike other restorations, they are securely anchored to the jaw bone. A titanium post is surgically inserted into the bone, which heals around it and holds it firm. After this process is finished, the post can support or help support a variety of restorations, from single crowns to bridges to partial and complete dentures.
Dentures supported by implants are popular among many patients because they are more stable. You don’t need to worry about the denture getting loose or have to use messy adhesive to keep it in place. Its cleaning routine remains unchanged, but it will function more like natural teeth.
