As you probably know, millions of Americans suffer from tooth loss, mainly due to tooth decay, periodontal disease and injury. Earlier, the only options available to patients with missing teeth were bridges and dentures, but now another option is available – dental implants.
So, what exactly are dental implants? Well, a dental implant is a titanium post, like a tooth root, that is surgically positioned into the jawbone, beneath the gum line. This allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth into that area.
If you have missing teeth, treat yourself this Fourth of July by claiming your independence with dental implants. With implant technology advancing rapidly there has never been a better time to get dental implants from your trusted dentist.
Dental implants do not come loose like a denture, and they also improve general oral health because they do not need to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges. Because implants fuse with your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. To receive implants you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant.
