WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS
Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing or extracted teeth, which are designed to blend in with your other teeth. They are better than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to place the new tooth. In fact, the development and use of implants is one of the biggest advances in dentistry in the past 40 years.
The first part of the process is to install the implant itself, which involves placing it directly into the bone. An incision is made in the gum so that the implant can be inserted. Dental implants are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body, and they serve as posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth.
Dental implants are the new standard of care for people with missing or broken down teeth. You no longer have to rely on dentures, bridges and other removable appliances. With our dental implant services, our team at Green Spring Dental Care can help anyone smile with confidence and eat comfortably.
WHY WOULD YOU NEED DENTAL IMPLANTS
When you've lost a tooth, or a tooth has been damaged beyond repair by injury or decay, you'll need to consider your alternatives. If you have lost teeth because of disease or an accident, dental implants may also be a good solution for you.
Living without one or more of your teeth can be unhealthy. It can also destroy your confidence, and make you reluctant to smile or speak naturally. Temporary or other alternatives, such as a bridge or dentures, can fill in the gap; however, they will not look or feel the same as your natural teeth. Additionally, these temporary alternatives can cause other problems, including damage to otherwise healthy teeth that are being used to support the artificial device, bone loss, and deterioration in the bone structure of your face.
Dental implants can be used to replace one or more of your teeth in a manner that is durable, beautiful, and that mimics your natural tooth structure. A tooth implant from Greenspring Dental Care can be made to look and feel so natural that it will seem – to you and to others – like your natural tooth.
You may want to choose dental implants if you:
- Hide your smile because you have missing teeth
- Wear dentures that are uncomfortable
- Want to keep your other teeth intact
