With dental implants, patients can restore their smile after tooth loss. While there are several tooth replacement options available to the patients of Dream Dentistry, our primary dentist, Dr. William Lesh, strongly encourages patients to consider the advantages of dental implants. Dental implants are titanium posts made to act as a tooth root replacement. They are placed into the jawbone and restored by the dentist using crowns, bridges, or dentures to replace one or more teeth. These restorations have many advantages which make them a highly desirable solution for many of the patients who visit our practice.
How do dental implants derive their strength and durability?
Because dental implants are placed into the jawbone during oral surgery, they stimulate the growth of bone during a process known as osseointegration. This process is what allows the dental implant to stay firmly in place, giving it strength that cannot be obtained by other tooth replacement options. This also makes them a great choice for patients who need to anchor dental bridges or dentures to replace one or several teeth.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants have several advantages that make them a reliable, obvious choice for many of the patients who visit Dream Dentistry considering tooth replacement:
● Dental implants maintain natural bone to avoid a shrunken appearance of the jaw that is common with denture-wearers.● Dental implants are versatile and can be used to anchor a crown, bridge, or denture.● Dental implants are biocompatible and safe to use in the oral cavity.● Dental implants are strong, and often last a lifetime with proper care.● Dental implants are easy to care for as they do not require any additional attention when compared with the other teeth.● Dental implants are restored with porcelain restorations that mimic natural tooth enamel and look natural.● Dental implants are an investment in a healthy and beautiful smile for life!
