What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed into the jaw and fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration. Bone growth envelopes the post making it a secure tooth root for a prosthetic crown. Prosthetic crowns shine with the luster of natural enamel and match your surrounding dentition.
Health Advantages of Dental Implants
Dental implants positively affect oral health. They keep surrounding teeth from shifting out of alignment, and they maintain the health of the jawbone. After tooth loss, the jaw bone begins to atrophy, losing volume and strength. Implant posts stimulate the jaw tissue and prevent the bone from resorption. If the jaw bone loses volume due to resorption, the facial structure begins to undergo changes. The mouth can appear sunken, prematurely aging a person’s appearance.
Traditional implants require a process of about four months to complete and they have a success rate of over 95%.
