Definition of dental implant:
A dental implant is a post made of titanium that is placed into your jawbone. As the insertion site heals, the bone fuses around the post, anchoring it into place. This creates a structure that is remarkably close to a natural tooth root. After the healing process is complete, an artificial tooth is screwed into place on top of the post.
Advantages of dental implants:
- Natural appearance: They look and feel like your own teeth. Because of the way the post anchors the tooth into your mouth, it is a permanent solution to tooth loss.
- Comfort: After the process is complete, the dental implants fit effortlessly into your mouth with none of the discomfort associated with dentures.
- Improved oral health: There is no need to reduce surrounding teeth, as is needed with traditional dental bridges. This allows your natural teeth to remain intact. Care for them is as simple as an excellent oral hygiene routine that involves brushing and flossing.
- Permanent: With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.
