Patients receive dental implants for a variety of reasons. For instance, they provide a fixed solution to having complete or removable dentures and therefore, are an ideal way to replace missing teeth.
Dental implants consist of artificial teeth and roots, typically made of titanium. These roots forms are situated in the lower or upper jaw bone. Next, the teeth are attached to the implants. They are extremely natural looking and usually restore or enhance a patient's smile.
Dental implants are very stable, strong and completely durable. They are built to last for many years.
Reasons for dental implants:
People get dental implants to restore a confident smile, to enhance or restore facial tissues and even to improve and restore digestion, chewing and speech. Dental implants are utilized to resolve bite or joint issues caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space. As well, dental implants replace one or more missing teeth without affecting any of the surrounding or adjacent teeth. Lastly, dental implants are often used to support a denture or a bridge in order to make them more comfortable and secure.
