Recovering from tooth loss is a matter of appearances to some extent. You want to replace your missing teeth and eliminate the gaps in your smile. You don’t want your tooth replacement to be merely perfunctory though. A quality dental prosthetic should recreate your natural teeth. That’s what a dental implant can achieve. When placed with precision and care, a dental implant can serve as a base for a lifelike tooth replacement that not only restores the appearance of your smile, but the function of your bite as well. Are you a candidate for dental implants?
Placed at the Proper Angle, Dental Implants Fit Seamlessly Next to Natural Teeth
Dental implants are biocompatible posts, typically made from titanium, that are surgically implanted into your jawbone. That means that they take time to heal after surgery, but once your implant has healed, it will fuse with your jawbone, creating a strong base for your tooth replacement. The angle of your dental implant placement matters, because the proper angle will ensure that your prosthetic fits alongside your other teeth and forms a comfortable bite with your other natural teeth. This is why options for implants that utilize digital imaging technology are preferred.
The Strength of Dental Implants Matches Natural Teeth
There are a number of dental prosthetic options to help you replace missing teeth. Many of these options are made out of materials that will match the appearance of your natural teeth, so cosmetics aren’t an issue. Where dental implants set themselves apart is with their functionality. Dental implants have the stability of your jawbone that allows you to chew with confidence. They also stand on their own, so they aren’t reliant on other teeth for support or strength. An issue with a neighboring tooth won’t necessarily cause a problem for your dental implant.
Dental Implants Create a Base for Lifelike Dental Crowns
Your implant is a titanium post that doesn’t look or feel like a natural tooth on its own. However, the implant serves as a base for a dental crown. Dental crowns are fabricated from dental porcelain to recreate the color and reflection of a natural tooth. The crown can be fabricated to look just like your natural tooth — fitting comfortably alongside your other teeth and giving you a functional chewing surface. Dental crowns are also fabricated using precise measurements of your teeth to ensure a proper fit.
