The idea and process, of dental implants, can be confusing and foreign if you have never been a dental implant patient before. Dental implants are not what most people consider day-to-day dentistry. However, due to the versatility and predictability of implants, they quickly became the gold standard for tooth replacement after their dentistry introduction in the early 1980s.
Titanium, one of the most bio-compatible materials on the market, is the primary material for implants. Which is good news if you have a metal allergy because you are still likely to be an excellent candidate for implants. An implant is placed in the jawbone and is designed to function as the root of a tooth. The difference comes in the top portion of the implant which can be a single tooth, a part of a bridge helping to replace multiple teeth, or a component designed to improve a denture or partial denture.
There are many benefits to receiving a dental implant:
While many people look at a missing tooth as an aesthetic concern, it is important to realize it is a health concern as well. Healthy teeth play an essential role in the body from head to toe. When even one tooth is missing, you can struggle with jawbone deterioration, declining self-esteem, and the inability to correctly digest your diet. All of these instances work to negatively affect your entire body’s overall health and should be avoided at all costs.
