What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant provides several advantages over other tooth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like a natural tooth, a dental implant replaces teeth without sacrificing the structure of neighboring teeth. The other standard treatment for the loss of teeth-a tooth-supported fixed bridge-requires that adjacent teeth be ground down to support the cemented bridge.
Because a dental implant replaces your tooth root, the bone is better preserved. Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact.
The technology for performing dental implants has advanced enormously in the last few years. Today’s implant procedures are better and easier than ever before, and the performance of implants exceeds that of any replacement alternative.
The success of a dental implant depends mostly on the condition of the underlying bone.
