A dental implant is a replacement for a missing tooth. it is a titanium fixture that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option used by dentists for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. There are various types of implants, including screws, cylinders or blades surgically placed into the jawbone. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth.
Dental implants are an excellent choice can look very natural, and can have a success rate of up to 98%. When a tooth is lost, it can not only affect your appearance and self confidence, it also sets up a domino effect in your mouth. When you lose a tooth, THE OTHER TEETH IN THE MOUTH BEGIN TO MOVE TO ACCOMMODATE FOR THAT NEW SPACE, AND YOU WILL NOW HAVE TEETH THAT ARE TILTED, CROOKED, OR THAT HAVE ERUPTED OUT OF THEIR SOCKET.
dENTAL IMPLANTS ALSO HELP TO MAINTAIN THE BONE IN THE AREA OF TOOTH LOSS. wITHOUT AN IMPLANT IN PLACE, THE BODY WILL SLOWLY START EATING AWAY AT THE BONE, AND IT WILL SLOWLY DISAPPEAR.
