Dental implants are indistinguishable from your natural teeth. An implant is an “artificial root”, which looks similar to a screw. The implant is precisely placed into the jawbone and is generally accomplished in a single sitting. Sometimes, with the assistance of computer analysis and design, the teeth can be placed on the same day as the initial implant placement. Other times, a period of healing is required prior to placing the tooth, which attaches to the implant.
There are other restorative options for missing teeth, but in many cases, implants are the only option for restoring functionality. Implants are more functional than bridges and dentures, as well as more permanent. There are many advantages to dental implants, they help prevent bone atrophy, restored the ability to chew, improved cosmetic appearance, look and feel of natural teeth, and implants don’t need any adhesive or overnight soaking. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth, to support dentures, and to support bridges.
In either scenario, replacing the missing tooth or teeth can improve one’s smile cosmetically, functionally, and structurally.
