Dental implants offer the most effective form of tooth replacement by becoming an artificial tooth root. This artificial tooth root acts in the same manner as your natural tooth root, allowing dental implants to provide a secure foundation to hold a crown, bridge, or denture in place. This is a functionally superior hold while also prohibiting issues such as jaw shrinkage and collapse. Dental implants are the only form of tooth replacement that can prevent these particular issues.
The Benefits of Biocompatibility
Dental implants are made of medical grade titanium, which is as strong as steel while being at least two-times lighter. It is also biocompatible. What this means is that once placed, your body is unlikely to reject titanium dental implants as a foreign material. This allows your dental implants to undergo a process known as osseointegration in which they becomes an accepted part of your jaw, making your implants a permanent solution for replacing your missing teeth.
Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants, but our experienced implant dentists will do everything possible to provide you with this superior form of tooth replacement. During your initial consultation, one of our dentists will assess the quantity and quality of your jaw and help you determine if dental implants will work for your smile.
