Dental implants are the most popular method of replacing damaged teeth. Dentists recommend getting implants to restore the functionality of the teeth as they provide a better foundation to place artificial teeth in replacement for the lost ones. By gaining dental implants, patients can continue to enjoy the standard functions of the teeth as before.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants come with Titanium screws that are inserted into the jawbone where the teeth are missing and serve as an artificial root for the new tooth. With implants, patients can be benefited with replacements that appear and operate like natural ones, give patients the freedom of consuming the food they love, maintains the aesthetics of the face, and dental setup develops into a confidence booster and prevents further loss of teeth.
How dental implants restore the functionality of the teeth?
The restorative dentist will first clean the area of the jaw bone where the implant will be inserted. After placing the implant, a sufficient period will be given so that the implant gets to properly fuse into the jawbone giving it a firm base to put the restoration above it. Later, the dentist will insert a small post over the implant onto which the new tooth will be placed.
Why do we recommend implants?
Dentists recommend implants above any teeth replacement strategy as implants are durable and provide better functionality for the dental setup.
