What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants have been hailed as one of the great advances in the field of dentistry, and with good reason.
Dental implants are titanium posts placed into the jaw. The posts fuse with your jawbone to form a solid anchor for a restoration.
A single implant can support one artificial tooth, while several can support a bridge or dental arch.
The great thing about dental implants is that they function like natural teeth. The titanium post integrates with the bone so well that the body seldom recognizes them as a foreign object. Implants have a success rate of greater than ninety percent.
Conventional dentures may be more affordable than implant-anchored dentures. But because they are removable, most patients find them unreliably loose. They can also affect the ability to enjoy food. These are not issues with implant-supported dentures.
