What Is Implant
Implant Dentistry - Prime Dental Clinic
The goal of teeth replacement is to restore your tooth’s function as well as esthetics. Dental Implants are a great way to restore a beautiful smile by replacing missing teeth.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture that is placed into the jawbone and allowed to fuse with the bone over the span of 3 to 6 months. Dental implants act as a replacement root of a missing tooth. They are made of titanium, which due to its properties is not rejected by the body.
The benefits of implant dentistry
One of the main benefits of implant dentistry over other tooth replacement options is that they prevent the sunken look that is associated with missing teeth. Because the implants are placed in the jawbone, they help retain the fullness and contours of the face by retaining the supporting bone, much like a natural tooth root.
In addition, dental implants look and function much more like natural teeth when compared with other types of replacement options. Unlike dental bridges, which depend on surrounding teeth for support, dental implants stand-alone without affecting other teeth.
Dental implants require no extra maintenance aside from regular brushing, flossing, and recall visits to see your hygienist.
