Reasons to Consider Dental Implants

Dental implants could solve your smile problems for good. Improving bone health and strength and remaking natural smile function and appearance, dental implants placed by Dr. Renuka Kumar in Scottsdale, AZ, are today's best tooth replacements.

What is a dental implant?

It's a titanium metal screw that functions as a replacement tooth root. Dr. Kumar places the implant right into the empty socket. Over time--weeks to months--the implant and jaw bone bond together. Dentists call this osseointegration, and once complete, it facilitates placement of a metal abutment and porcelain crown.

Dental implants form the foundation for fixed bridgework or full dentures, too. In other words, implants are very versatile, and Dr. Kumar individualizes each treatment for her patients to maximize their personal appearance and oral function.

There are more reasons to consider them.

Dental implants rebuild your jaw bone

When you lose teeth, your gum tissue and jaw bone deteriorate quickly, changing how you look and eat. Simply put, your hard and soft oral tissues require exercise to stay sizable and durable. In the absence of natural teeth, dental implants can supply that stimulation and maintain your supporting bone.

Dental implant last

Implants can potentially stay in place for life as long as you keep up with good oral hygiene, in-office exams and cleanings and if you can, stop smoking.

Amazingly, dental implant procedures feature a success rate of up to 98 percent, reports the Institute for Dental Implant Awareness (IDIA). That means when Dr. Kumar examines your mouth and underlying jaw bone, qualifying you for the implant surgery, you definitely can anticipate a tooth that looks natural and acts efficiently.
