The Innovation of Dental Implants
What are dental implants, you ask? Simply put, dental implants are small rods that are surgically inserted into your jawbone, where the root of your missing tooth once was. More specifically, these implants are the only dental restoration that replaces this root, as well as the visible part of your tooth (called the crown). To some, tooth replacement may seem like a purely cosmetic option. After all, if you don’t mind a gapped smile, then you may not see the point in filling them. However, there is more to tooth loss than inconsistent rows of teeth. When a tooth is uprooted, your jawbone (which supports your tooth’s roots) receives fewer nutrients and begins to deteriorate. In time, it will shrink and lose its ability to successfully support your remaining teeth, possibly leading to their loss, as well. Replacing the root with a dental implant can help prevent jawbone deterioration, as well as restore your smile to glory and help your face retain its natural shape.
