Even a single missing tooth can have an adverse impact on your oral health. Implant dentistry provides an easy and effective solution to replace the tooth as well as the root. Dental implant is an artificial tooth replacement that provides additional support where teeth are missing.

The implant is made of titanium, which is most compatible with the human body, to serve as a replacement for the root portion of the lost tooth. A natural tooth has a crown and a root which is hidden under the gum. The dental implant is placed in the bone of the jaw. Once the bone grows around, implants hold the crown just like roots hold natural teeth. Versatile implants can be used to support a single missing tooth as well as complete set of teeth. Dental implants are a long lasting alternative to dentures. While dentures are not permanent and can be removed, implants are anchored into the jaw and hence cannot be removed.

The Irvine Dentist Who Is Right For You

When considering a dental implant, you should select a dentist with in-depth knowledge and experience in all aspects of various treatments. It is only after a thorough examination that a dentist recommends a suitable and correct treatment for you. It is essential to go to a dentist who can be relied on for implant dentistry.

Earlier, dentists replaced teeth with conventional treatments like root canals, dentures and bridges. The shortcomings of these methods have been eliminated by implant dentistry. Implant dentists offer several types of tooth implants. Most dental implants are endosteal root form fixtures. Osseo-integrated implant is the most successful and most effective implant procedures.

After getting a dental implant you experience better oral health, improved speech, reduced chances of getting gum diseases, and a comfortable bite. Unlike bridgework, implants avoid grinding down adjacent teeth.
