When teeth are missing for any reason, dental implants can come to the rescue. They simulate tooth roots and provide a strong base for artificial teeth placed on top. Implants are a popular and long-lasting solution that avoid the hassles associated with dentures or bridges. Implants fit, function, look and feel like natural teeth.
The reason that dental implants feel so secure is that the titanium rod is inserted directly into the jaw bone so that it fuses to the bone. The result is a strong anchor for a new tooth placed on top that has no risk of loosening or falling out. You’re able to speak, eat and laugh without concerns for the security of your restoration.
Dental implants may be the solution for replacing a single missing tooth, multiple teeth, or even a complete upper or lower set of teeth. Dentists or oral surgeons who are trained and experienced in dental implants have great success in providing this life-long way to restore beautiful and fully functional smiles.
You’re not the only one if you feel like your smile has become dull and yellowed. (more…)
