Many people will need to replace at least one tooth in their lifetime. Dental implants can replace teeth that have been lost or extracted because of damage or decay. They are possibly the best form of restoration for teeth. Here are 3 reasons why you should consider them.
1) They replace the entire tooth structure. Unlike other restorations, dental implants go beneath the surface and replace both the crown and root of a tooth. The implant portion of the restoration is a titanium post placed directly in the jaw bone. This gives them great strength and stability.
2) They last. A long time. There is not really such a thing as “permanent” in dentistry, but dental implants come as close as anything. They are really designed to last a lifetime. And if a crown gets damaged, repairs are easy.
3) They blend perfectly with your natural teeth. Crowns for dental implants are made of material designed to integrate seamlessly with your natural teeth. Factors such as shade, shape, and lustre are all considered. Once it is placed, your smile will really be as good as new.
These are just three reasons why implants might be right for you if you need one or more teeth replaced.
