Implants Could Help You Improve Your Quality of Life
Posted on 4/15/2020 by Elmwood Dental Group
If you want to improve your quality of life, you may want to seriously consider implants. Implants are permanent restorations that make it easy to attach fixed dentures or secure dental prosthetics, such as crowns. Not only can the implants improve your smile, they resemble natural teeth in the way they function. The following information gives you more insight as to the use of these artificial roots.
What Are Implants?
Implants are titanium dental “roots,” meant to replace the natural roots of teeth. They are designed to anchor prosthetics, such as dentures or crowns, so restorations can be made with more ease. The implant, itself, is made of the root and an abutment that is used, for example, to hold a crown. Titanium is normally used to make an implant, as it fuses better with the jawbone. If you opt for this dental treatment, expect to wait about 6 months for the implant to fully fuse with the bone. If we find that you do not have enough bone to hold an implant, we may suggest a bone graft. This type of procedure will lengthen the time for adding an implant or implants.
Do Implants Really Work?
People who have undergone implant surgery say that they like how implants have improved their life. The titanium roots can be used to fill in missing teeth or replace removable dentures. When implants are inserted, many patients state that they feel like they have regained their smile. They can speak more easily, smile without feeling self-conscious, and enjoy eating more.
