Dental implants offer patients who have lost a tooth a “replacement in kind”: a prosthetic tooth that is anchored into the jaw bone with a tiny titanium post that mimics the tooth root. The tiny post implanted acts much like a natural tooth root. It helps generate natural bone growth to support the tooth structure. An implant not only provides patients with a secure, natural-looking and functioning tooth, but it can also help reduce further bone loss and support long-term dental health.
They can also be used to secure dentures when a patient has either multiple missing teeth to replace or wishes to fix the problem of ill-fitting dentures. Strategically placed implants will support the denture and help maintain sufficient bone retention and growth.
Dental implants feel just like a natural tooth. Once complete, and patients can eat and function normally. There is no special daily care involved in maintaining the implant. Regular preventive care visits are important for keeping the implant healthy, along with monitoring its condition over time.
