Dental implants are perfect for people who have been self-conscious about their smiles for a long time. There are a variety of reasons why you might choose not to smile, which is sad because smiling is a way of interacting with others, and missing teeth is generally at the top of the list.
If you're missing teeth for any reason, don't wait to get help to save your smile. Tooth loss gradually leads to bone loss, making surgeries to restore your smile more difficult and expensive.
What Are Dental Implants and How Do They Work?
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone. They will become tooth roots, supporting the posts that will act as anchors for the crowns or bridges that will be placed on top of them. Before crowns or bridges are placed on top of the implants, they must first bind with the jawbone in a process known as osseointegration, which might take months. In the meantime, your dentist can offer you dentures.
Dental implants have a number of advantages:-
- Missing teeth have a number of dangers. The following can be avoided with dental implants:
- Other teeth begin to shift out of place, develop problems, and eventually fall out.
- Chewing is painful, and you won't be able to chew your food properly, which might lead to digestive problems.
- Bone loss causes changes in facial structure, such as sagging or hollow-looking cheeks.
