One of the most beneficial cosmetic surgeries that helps to return your lost, sparkling smile is the dental implant. Dental implants are useful to those who have lost tooth or teeth as a result of some disease, trauma etc. Implants are artificial roots that are fixed in place of a lost tooth into the jaw in order to hold a replacement tooth and thus, they help to restore your natural appearance and smile. As they are positioned and fixed into the jaw, beneath your gums, they provide strength and support to the replacement or artificial tooth, dentures, or a bridge.
Implant Dentistry Benefits:
- Dental implants restore proper chewing function.
- Implant-supported tooth replacements won’t move or loosen.
- Dental implants prevent bone loss.
- Unlike other restorations, implant dentistry doesn’t damage other healthy teeth.
- Dental implants eliminate the irritated, painful gums associated with dentures.
- Implants can improve your speech.
How do they work?
It is a minor surgical process wherein the dentist secures the implant into the gum tissues and underlying bone onto which the artificial tooth or teeth are attached. Therefore, good oral hygiene, healthy gums and bone tissue is required to hold the implant in place. Made of titanium which is a biocompatible element and is well accepted by the body, these implants also support the jawbone and other facial tissues to maintain its shape and appearance. Apart from the look, the dental implants also, restore normal functioning of the tooth so the patient can eat or chew or talk just as the natural tooth.
