If you have a missing tooth or teeth, dental implants are a great choice to replace them. Contact Lupine Dental about whether dental implants are right for you.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, made of titanium. They are surgically inserted into the jawbone where the missing tooth was. Once stabilized, a natural looking artificial tooth, or crown, is attached to the implant by a small attachment called an abutment.
Dental implants look and function like real teeth, and can fully restore or even improve your smile.
Dental implants are recommended by dentists as tooth replacements as they come with many benefits:
Your implant crown will be the same color and match the shape of your natural teeth. It will feel and function exactly like a real tooth.
If a tooth is missing, the bone around where the root used to be starts to deteriorate. When an implant is inserted into the jaw, the bone grows around it, stopping or slowing the bone loss and strengthening your jaw.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, or multiple missing teeth. Sometimes they are used to support other dental work such as bridges and can be used as an alternative to partial dentures.
Because the implants fuse with bone, they are a steady and long-term solution to replacing missing teeth. If anything happens to the replacement crown, it’s easy to put a new one onto the existing implant.
Studies show that dental implants have an extremely high success rate, better than most other tooth replacement options. Patients are also happy with the immediate and long-term results they get from dental implants.
