People experience permanent tooth loss for many reasons, like injury, disease, illness, genetic issues, and age. No matter what the cause, every patient with permanent tooth loss has one thing in common: the need and desire to replace those teeth, both for appearance and function. People with missing teeth experience issues with eating and talking, and an incomplete smile can have an enormous negative effect on self-esteem.
The apex of tooth replacement technology, dental implants are permanent solutions to tooth loss. Natural looking and natural feeling, dental implants are the next best thing to real teeth!
The dental implant is a titanium rod with the artificial tooth mounted on one end. The first step in the process is to prepare the site by surgically implanting the rod into the jaw. The rod acts as the root of the new tooth, and is imbedded directly into the jawbone. Once the jaw and gum heals, the dentist then mounts the artificial tooth onto the rod. The result is an artificial tooth that looks and feels indistinguishable from real teeth; in fact, you even brush and floss them like real teeth.
