Dental implants are a popular type of tooth replacement, offering exciting benefits for people who have lost teeth. They are designed to replace a single tooth with a single implant, multiple missing teeth with an implant-supported bridge, or an entire arch of teeth with an implant-supported denture.
Dental implant treatment begins with a simple in-office procedure to place the dental implant screw. Bone will begin to fill in around the dental implant screw, anchoring it firmly in place. The dental implant screw functions as the “root” of your missing tooth.
After the dental implant area has healed completely and the dental implant screw is firmly in place, a dental implant crown is placed over the top of the dental implant screw. Once a dental implant is placed, it will look and function just like a natural tooth.
Dental implants have a success rate of over 95 percent, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. They are the most successful implant because the dental implant screw is made of titanium, a biocompatible material. Your body won’t reject dental implants.
Dental implants offer permanent tooth replacement that can last a lifetime. They also offer important benefits like these:
- Natural beauty; the dental implant crown closely mimics the look of natural tooth enamel.
- Stability; the dental implant screw is embedded in bone, so it will never move around.
- Great oral health; you can brush and floss dental implants just like your natural teeth.
- Convenience; you won’t ever have to remove dental implants, giving you the freedom of not having to go without your smile.
