Dental Implants are a great way for you to replace your missing teeth. Dental implants are replacement metal tooth roots that get inserted into a patient’s jawbone to support an artificial tooth. Dental implants are comfortable and are often made to look and feel like real teeth. The loss of one or several of your teeth can have a major impact on the look, feel, functionality, and shape of your mouth and the appearance of your smile:
- Missing teeth can change the shape of your mouth and the look of your face.
- Gaps in your teeth can impair your ability to eat certain foods.
- The spaces left by missing teeth can reduce the attractiveness of your smile and diminish your sense of confidence.
What Are Dental Implants Made Of
A dental implant is made from titanium. Implants bond to the jaw, similarly to the root of a natural tooth, and they permanently replace a lost tooth. Dental implants are suitable for anyone in good general health. They are put in place during a simple surgical procedure done under local anesthetic.
Being able to smile proudly instead of hiding your teeth is something you should be proud of. Imagine biting into a crunchy apple without the worry of breaking your teeth or triggering pain in your gums. Dental implants are able to give you the confidence to show your healthy smile.
