When there is severe damage to your teeth for any reason, it may be difficult to find a treatment to save them. The damage could be due to an accident where your teeth experienced a severe impact. It could be due to neglect or waiting too long to see the dentist to determine the cause of mouth pain. When you are finally ready to restore your smile in all its glory, dental implants might be the solution for you.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial teeth that are affixed to titanium posts that are surgically embedded into the jawbone. This sounds like a complex procedure, but it may be simpler than you think. Some types of dental implants only take one or two visits to be placed and can be used right away. The implants can be used to replace a single tooth, used in conjunction with abutments to support a bridge, or even used to hold permanent dentures in place.
How Can Patients Benefit From Implants?
Not every patient qualifies for dental implants, but those who do may experience certain benefits. You can care for implants the same as you do your natural teeth. Because the titanium post is placed in the jawbone, it helps to maintain the shape of the face and prevent deterioration of the bone. Implants are a secure and long-term solution when cared for properly. Most of all, implants help patients to feel normal again and to smile with confidence.
