Dental implants are an attractive solution to offering a next-to-authentic alternative to replacing a missing tooth. By definition, a dental implant is considered a ‘root’ device. Typically made of titanium, is surgically inserted below the gums and directly into the jawbone. As a replacement to the natural root, an implant is placed into the jaw exactly where the natural root was previously located.
This process is done carefully by the professionals at South University Dental, with residual pain being much less than one would expect. The implant then integrates with the jawbone, creating at a fusion that renders the most natural result possible. Crowns, bridges, or dentures can fixed onto an implant once the process is finished.
Here are a few examples:
As mentioned earlier, implants actually fuse to your bone. This can cause dental implant restorations to ultimately feel like natural teeth. The security that comes with implants makes them a safer, more comfortable, secure-feeling solution compared to bridges and dentures.
