Dental implants have been around for quite some time. Most people are aware that a dental implant consist of a titanium “screw” that acts like a root, with a ceramic or porcelain tooth on top. What many people do not realize are the amazing advancements that have taken place in the last few years with regards to dental implant technology. There are many more implant options available today, which can allow us to place implants where we never would have thought possible before. Using the latest in digital imaging technology, we are able to accurately plan where to place the implants to get the best results. We are able to place implants more accurately, faster, and with less discomfort than ever before. Sometimes we are even able to place an implant to replace a tooth the very same day that the tooth is extracted!
The advantages of dental implants are overarching. The implants will provide a base for your restoration that is specifically designed to not only but to also feel natural.
Furthermore, you will be able to carry on your daily activities with much more ease and without any worries of the restoration slipping out. Dental implants enhance your ability to eat, speak, smile and laugh making these routine activities more enjoyable and care-free than ever.
Above all the appearance benefits that dental implants offer, it is actually good for your overall health, because unlike other methods of tooth replacement, dental implants not only prevent the deterioration of the jawbone, but actually protect the jawbone.
If your dental implants are cared for properly, they have the potential to last a lifetime, ensuring you truly get your moneys worth.
