Dental implants replace teeth you have lost regardless of the reason, baring bone degradation. Crafted from titanium, a lightweight material, implants bond to healthy bone through osteointegration. This results in the fusing of metal and bone to create a permanent, secure anchor.
Dental implants offer a solution for single and multiple missing teeth. Unlike dentures and bridges, dental implants don't require you to have the nearby teeth altered in any manner. Therefore, implants offer a better, less invasive treatment.
There are many advantages to having dental implants, including:
- Normalcy in eating and speaking
- It helps prevent bone loss
- Preserves oral wellness
- Maintains and preserves the natural-looking smile
How Long do Dental Implants Last?
Dental implants can last a lifetime, as long as you care for them properly. You'll need to brush and floss, keeping the same habits as we all should daily. Additionally, we will thoroughly explain how to effectively maintain them during your appointment.
We may suggest cleaning aids to help keep your implants in working order. Furthermore, you'll need to commit to all follow-up appointments so that we can monitor your implants to ensure they're functioning and healing properly.
Although oral implants aren't susceptible to cavities, they're nonetheless affected by daily wear and tear. Remain especially careful when you're eating sticky or crunchy foods. These are just as harmful to enamel as they are to porcelain or ceramic.
