Dental implants have been called one of the greatest advances in the history of dentistry, and with good reason. They are available at Koch Aesthetic Dentistry in Birmingham.
What Is A Dental Implant?
A complete single-tooth dental implant restoration has three parts:
A dental implant is a permanent anchor (post) that is inserted into the jaw. In the months after implantation, it integrates with the jawbone. This is called osseointegration.
The post becomes a solid base for the visible restoration above the gumline. A crown is then attached to the implant to replace the missing tooth.
Your jawbone and blood circulation treat the post as if it’s a natural tooth root, which prevents bone recession.
One implant can support one artificial tooth. Multiple implants can support a dental bridge or dentures.
Why Are Implants Better Than Dentures Or A Bridge?
With a dental bridge, tooth structure must be removed from the adjacent teeth to attach the bridge (false tooth). As a result, it compromises the integrity of those teeth.
A dental implant doesn’t cause any damage to the adjacent teeth. In fact, it helps them.
Dentures make it difficult to eat, taste, and talk. It’s more onerous to consume a nutritious diet with dentures.
Dentures don’t prevent bone recession. And they can irritate the soft tissues of the mouth. Plus they decrease self-confidence and quality of life.
