How Do Dental Implants Work?
Having a not-so-perfect smile can cripple a person’s self-esteem and confidence. Thousands of dental patients are gaining the courage to speak, eat, smile, and laugh in public with dental implants.
Dental implant treatments involve three simple steps:
- Metal anchors are placed in the jawbone wherever there are missing teeth
- Small titanium posts are firmly attached to the metal anchors
- Realistic replacement teeth are securely attached to the titanium posts
Why Choose Dental Implants Over Dentures?
Dental implants outlast dentures – Dentures don’t address serious structural issues that accompany tooth loss because they are only placed on top of the gum rather than being implanted. Dentures usually have to be replaced at intervals, where dental implants usually last a lifetime.
Dental implants are more comfortable than dentures – Dentures are bulky and feel unnatural. Dental implants feel like real teeth. It is more convenient and natural to speak and eat.
Dental implants look more natural than dentures – Dentures can look obviously artificial at times. For all intents and purposes, dental implants act and look like real teeth. No one will know they are artificial unless you tell them.
