With nearly 40 million Americans having lost some or all of their teeth, dental implants are a popular option for replacing those lost teeth. Implants are comfortable, attractive and will help you regain confidence in your smile.
They are an alternative to bridges, partials or dentures. Implants can look and feel like natural teeth. An implant simply is a metallic titanium object that is inserted into your jaw bone to act like a natural tooth-root. Titanium isn’t recognized by the body’s immune system, so it is not rejected as an implant. It integrates with the jaw bone to give firm support to the artificial replacement that it will support.
Reasons for receiving an Implant Supported Restorations:
- Helps preserve healthy vital tooth structure (unlike bridge)
- Implant supported crown look and feel like your natural teeth
- Increase your self-confidence when talking and smiling
