As you age, your teeth can become susceptible to disease, decay, or injury. Today, millions of Americans experience tooth loss at some point in their life. Untreated tooth loss can negatively affect the appearance of your smile, reducing your social confidence. In addition, untreated tooth loss can lead to a range of other problems such as facial structure change, bone degradation, and loss of function.
Dental implants are a trusted method for replacing lost teeth. While there are many ways to replace lost teeth, dental implants have proven to be a very sturdy, effective, and long-lasting solution, enabling you to regain the function and appearance of your mouth.
Unlike other tooth replacement solutions, dental implants are designed to function, look, and feel like your normal teeth.
Your dental implant procedure begins with your dentist administering nitrous oxide or other sedation method to give you a pain-free and relaxing experience. Your implant that’s made out of a titanium post is then screwed into your jawbone where your previous tooth root was located.
This titanium post fuses with your bone over time, rooting firmly in place. In this way, it takes over the function of your old tooth root. A crown, or other replacement option, is then attached to the dental implant. This replacement tooth looks and feels just like your original tooth.
Because of their design, dental implants have several advantages, including:
In addition, dental implants are convenient, as they are not removed.
