As such, especially if you are experiencing tooth loss or damage and are interested in receiving dental implants, you may be wondering about their overall safety and longevity. A dentist can assist you in making the best choice in deciding to receive dental implants!
Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces natural tooth roots with metallic or ceramic, screwlike posts; damaged or missing teeth are replaced with artificial teeth that look and function much like real ones. Dental implants can be a great alternative to dentures or bridgework that don’t fit well and can be an option when a lack of natural teeth roots doesn’t allow for building denture or bridgework tooth replacements, as they act as natural tooth roots.
Dental implant surgery may involve several procedures and is largely dependent upon the type of implant and the condition of your existing jawbone. A major benefit of implants is creating solid support for your new teeth — a process that requires bone to heal tightly around the implant. Since jawbone healing requires time, the process can take several months in total.
As with any surgical procedure, risks are involved. However, they are easily remedied and often avoided altogether due to high level expertise from the dental staff and professionals. Risks can include:
Dental implants are, without a doubt, a great option for anyone looking to improve their smile.
