What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a root-shaped titanium material that fuses to your jawbone to support a prosthetic tooth. Unlike other forms of tooth replacement, the titanium implant acts like a tooth root, which makes up two-thirds of our teeth. Other forms of replacement include prosthetics that are attached to surrounding teeth with adhesive.
Implants can be used for single tooth replacements, to support a bridge prosthetic that replaces multiple teeth at a time, and they can even be used to support a full set of dentures. So implant dentistry is inherently versatile. But that’s not their only advantage over other forms of tooth replacement. Let’s look at the other benefits that dental implants provide.
The Advantages of Dental Implants
- Prevent jawbone decay: As the titanium implants are fused to the jawbone, they prevent decay. Normally when a tooth is lost, the jawbone begins to decay due to a lack of stimulation.
- Sturdier than other treatments: Dental implants are by far the sturdiest form of tooth replacement, making them lower maintenance over time.
- Improved appearance: Dental implants look more realistic than alternative treatments, giving you more confidence in your smile after your treatment.
- Easier eating: With the sturdiness of the titanium implant, you can eat what you want without having to worry about damaging your tooth replacement. While dental implants aren’t invincible, they are certainly stronger than competing forms of tooth replacement.
