Although there are many different varieties of tooth replacements, one of the most successful forms is dental implants. Not only are they permanent, but they can last a lifetime if you take care of them well. Replace your missing teeth with dental implants and give your mouth the smile it deserves.
Dental implants are installed directly into your jawbone. A patient is required to have adequate jaw strength for this procedure to be successful. Speak with your dentist to determine if your jaw is capable of sustaining dental implants. After they are installed, the implant and bone will fuse together during the healing process, due to a process known as osseointegration.
If your jaw has multiple missing teeth, it will begin to weaken and deteriorate over time. Implants can help maintain the jawbone’s structure and functionality. Dental implants can even be designed to look and act just like your natural teeth. This will make your smile look better, and function better for tasks such as eating, chewing, and speaking.
If you take care of dental implants correctly, they can last a lifetime.
