Important Information About Dental Implants

August 12, 2015

Are you self conscious because you are missing teeth? Do you currently wear dentures and they are uncomfortable, or they fall out all the time? Do you have a bridge that just won’t stay put?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you should talk to your dentist about dental implants. Implants provide you with an effortless dental experience and will allow you to enjoy freedom with your mouth once again. If you are considering having implants installed, here’s a look at some important things that you should know about this form of cosmetic dentistry:

  • A dental implant is surgically placed into the jawbone.
  • Once the implant is installed, the bone will heal around it. This process is called ‘osseointegration’ and this is the reason why dental implants are so strong and stable and a preferred option above traditional dentures.
  • Once the jawbone heals around the implant, the artificial tooth will be attached to the implant, which serves as an artificial, yet permanent root.
  • Once installed, dental implants are strong, sturdy and are the closest thing to your own teeth as you can get.

If you are interested in dental implants, talk to your dentist to talk about the options that are available to you.
