What is a dental implant?
Dr. Echetebu describes dental implants as a restoration that is placed into the bone of the jaw to function as a tooth root replacement. Once the dental implant is surgically inserted, it is restored in one of several ways. A dental implant can be restored with:
- A dental crown
- A dental bridge
- A full denture
Implants are posts made of titanium that provide the best in strength and durability. The bone wraps around the implant and fuses to it in a process called osseointegration. Once firmly in place, the restoration is extremely effective at holding a restoration. A dental crown is used to replace a single tooth, a dental bridge replaces several teeth, and a full denture can replace all the teeth in the dental arch.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
The primary benefit of using dental implants is to restore the smile in a permanent manner. Dental implants last a lifetime when patients take good care of their teeth and gums. Implants are also natural-looking, easy to care for, and provide the best stability when compared to other stand-alone tooth replacements such as dentures or bridges.
