While tooth loss has an effect on the look of your smile, it can also lead to further dental complications if the tooth is not replaced. That’s why more and more people turn to dental implants to replace their missing teeth. It not only provides a natural tooth look and feel, it is the longest lasting tooth restoration that helps keep your smile healthy, too.

How Do Dental Implants Work

Dental implants act like a complete tooth. A titanium post is first surgically implanted into the jaw bone, acting as a tooth root. The post eventually fuses to your jaw bone so there is no shifting or slipping. This is what provides a solid and long lasting support for the replacement tooth.

Once the bone heals, an abutment is placed on the post. This connects the tooth crown, or the replacement tooth, to the post. The crown is then placed on the abutment and will look and function just like your natural teeth.

Dental implants are a popular treatment because of advantages that include:

  • Offer a natural look and feel – Implants look and feel just like your natural teeth. They provide a comfortable fit and you won’t even notice the difference. They provide a strong and permanent solution that allows you to live life with confidence.
  • Long lasting – With proper care, your implants can last up to a lifetime, unlike other tooth replacement treatments. In fact, there is no additional care needed. Brush and floss as you would your natural teeth and visit your dentist for regular checkups.
  • Protect from further dental damage – A missing tooth can cause the jaw bone to slowly deteriorate over time and even cause bone loss. As dental implants are positioned in the jaw bone, they help stimulate bone growth and keep the jaw bone healthy and intact. Implants also stop the shifting of your natural teeth which can occur due to missing teeth.
