Feel like you need a miracle to replace your missing tooth? If so, read below to find out why dental implants from Grateful Dentists' Billerica office may be the right option to give you a smile beyond description!
The Inner Workings of a Dental Implant
While maybe not the most interesting part for you, it’s important to understand how a dental implant works to see whether or not this is the right treatment option for you. After all, our Billerica, MA, general dentists want you to make an informed decision about your health.
A dental implant is a small tapered metal post or screw that is surgically placed within the jawbone where it functions like tooth roots. Once the dental implant is placed within the jawbone, the bone and tissue will naturally fuse together with the implant to become one permanent structure. Once this occurs, usually within 3-6 months after implant placement, the implant will be a stable, immovable fixture from which to support a false tooth or teeth.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Because of the uniqueness of how these restorations work, you might imagine that they can offer some pretty unique benefits as well. One of the major advantages to dental implants is how they function just like real tooth roots. This functionality ensures that you won’t find another restoration that is as close to real teeth in both looks and feel.
Other benefits include,
- A lifelong restoration
- Preventing jawbone loss (a complication of untreated tooth loss)
- Preventing teeth from shifting or moving around and around
- Fully restoring chewing and speech
- Support for your natural facial structure
- Boosting confidence and self-esteem
- Improvement to your appearance
