What Are Dental Implants?


Dental implants explained by Total Health DentalDental implants are the closest dental restoration to your original teeth. They are natural-looking and provide the functionality of a normal tooth. Dental implants can replace missing or severely damaged teeth and can be used to secure restorations like dentures and dental bridges. Patients with dental implants often have greater satisfaction and results than with other types of dental restorations.

What is involved in a dental implant


Dental implants have two primary parts, a small titanium post and a crown. The small titanium post is first implanted into the jawbone. Titanium is used because of its unique compatibility with human tissue, since the jawbone will grow naturally around the titanium, unlike other metals.

The jawbone will grow around the post and secure it in place. After the post is secure the dental crown or other dental fixture is attached to the post. The titanium post acts similarly to a natural tooth root and the crown provides a natural looking tooth and biting surface. Dental implants can replace a single tooth or many teeth, regardless of whether the tooth loss was caused by disease or injury.

Total Health Dental explains the reasons for dental implants
