Dental implants are changing people’s lifestyles. It has become a popular way to provide a secure anchor for artificial replacement teeth. A dental implant is a titanium post that is positioned surgically into the jawbone under the gumline. This lets the dentist mount a replacement tooth or restoration. With more implants, sections of teeth called bridges can be secured in the dental arch. The implant is secured as the bone grows tightly around it. This is called integration. Once fully integrated, the implant creates a stable foundation for your new teeth. These new teeth (restorations) are life-like crowns and bridges that are strong and beautiful. With fully restored dental implants, you can smile confidently and enjoy all your favorite foods. A restored (crowned) implant acts just like natural teeth with no need for any extra care other than regular dental hygiene, brushing, and flossing.
