With how much we use our teeth on a daily basis, sometimes we tend to take them for granted. It is only when we are faced with a tooth loss that we start to notice how essential each one is. This is where dental implants come into play— dental implants are able to replace the presence and functionality of a lost tooth. At Jeffrey Burns' office in Vernon, CT, we make it our goal to provide personalized oral care for our patients, and that includes dental implants. Read on to learn more.
What Are Dental Implants And How They Work
Dental implants can be thought of as artificial tooth roots. They are screw-like in design and usually exist in two parts: one part that bonds directly to the jawbone, and one that is attached to the artificial tooth. By bonding with the jawbone, they provide a sturdy base for the tooth replacements, and thereby reinstate oral functionality. Furthermore, dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry.
What Are Some of The Benefits of Dental Implants?
There are many advantages to dental implants, some of which include:
- Improved Appearance
- Improved Oral Health
- Improved Comfort
- Ease of Oral Care
These are just some of the advantages you can benefit from if you opt to go for dental implant surgery. With dental implants, taking care of them is no different than taking care of your real teeth, including habits like brushing your teeth, flossing and using mouthwash
