An enormous number of Americans experience tooth loss of some type throughout their lives. Quite often, this tooth loss is due to various gum diseases, trauma, or decay. Dental technology has greatly improved over the years. We’ve gone from having dentures and bridges as the only option for missing teeth to having another great option in dental implants.
Dental implants are one of the best options available for replacing damaged or missing teeth. Implants are a permanent fixture in your mouth and are an excellent way to bring back your bright smile. At Bellflower, we work together and carefully coordinate with a full team to make sure you have the best experience possible.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are a permanent fixture in your mouth. They are anchored to the tooth root, allowing your teeth to have a firm and stable foundation and maintaining the strength of the jawbone. Here are some excellent benefits you should consider regarding dental implants.
- Customizable with the perfect fit and color match for your teeth
- Dental implants provide a permanent fixture that stimulates bone growth and protects your jawbone from deterioration due to missing teeth
- Fully replace missing teeth, including functions such as speaking, biting, and chewing.
- Improved appearance with a bright smile and no missing teeth or gaps
- More comfortable than dentures as they do not slide or come loose
- Dental implants are durable and designed to last for many years, if not a lifetime.
How Are Dental Implants Installed?
For more specific information on the placement of dental implants, you can visit our page that breaks down the details “Overview of Implant Placement”, however, this is a summary of how implants are installed.
Dental implants begin by replacing the root of your missing tooth with the implant. This is the first step. From there, it takes some time for your jawbone to regain strength and bone growth. After a short period of time, we then attached an abutment, which is a titanium support piece. This titanium post gives the new tooth a strong foundation. The final stage of the process is to install a crown that matches your other teeth onto the support post to replace the missing tooth.
