Dental implants are the most stable tooth replacement option available. Unlike other restorations, such as standard dental bridges or dentures, dental implants simulate more than just the crown of the tooth. The dental implant itself is actually a biocompatible titanium post that is inserted into the jawbone to replace the missing tooth root. The implant post is then covered with a restoration to complete the treatment. This can be a crown to replace a single tooth, a bridge to replace one or more teeth, or even a denture to replace a full dental arch.
There are many benefits to dental implants. The biggest is that they are the most stable restorations out there and they help support your oral health now and into the future. When take care of properly, the implant post can last a lifetime. Dental implants are also flexible, allowing you to get nearly whatever restoration you need with the stability of the implant post.
