Just How Do Dental Implants Work Anyways?
WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
WHAT ARE COSMETIC DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Cosmetic Dental Implants are now the standard of care for replacing a single tooth, or even an entire arch. They are a popular solution for those who have been in dentures for decades, or months, and who want to regain a natural dental function.
A dental implant is used in conjunction with tooth coloured ceramic crowns. They are made of titanium and are affixed to your natural jawbone. As such, they act just as a natural root. You really won’t be able to feel the difference!
Dental implants are considered to be minimally invasive. While other procedures like bridgework will affect the surrounding teeth, implants leave your existing teeth untouched. This is incredibly important to the long term health of your mouth.
Unlike dentures, dental implants do not require further adjustment after placement. With the titanium dental implant, your natural bone structure is actually strengthened through continuous exercise and stimulation. You will not experience the same bone loss as some denture patients.
