Dental implants are a cost-effective way to replace missing teeth and look great. They are much like natural looking teeth, acting and moving just like natural teeth too. Implants are typically made of titanium which is a durable material that will last a lifetime! Implants are typically placed in the upper jaw and are either fixed or removable. They are secured using a post, which is made of titanium and screws into the jawbone. The post is usually placed in the mouth during the first appointment and then the artificial teeth are placed over the post during the next appointment.
Dental implants are devices that replace the roots of your teeth. They’re usually made of titanium rods and can be used to replace a single tooth or several teeth. They’re designed to mimic the way your teeth look and move. They’re usually placed in a titanium shell that is bonded to your jawbone. The titanium shell is the part you’ll see when you get them placed. Your dentist will likely place a temporary fixture on the implant after it’s in place. It will look similar to a crown and serve a similar function. It’s important to note that implants are not substitutes for tooth loss. If that sounds like something you’re interested in, you should talk to your dentist about dental implants.
