Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically embedded in the jaw. Once healed, they mimic the role of natural tooth roots and help to provide a lifetime of support for dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. Patients who receive dental implants can enjoy a wealth of functional and aesthetic benefits:
Patients who are not good candidates for traditional dental implants may be able to enjoy many of these same benefits by qualifying for a non-traditional type, such as All-on-4® dental implants. Dr. Damon can review your restorative treatment options during a personal consultation.
One of the biggest advantages of receiving dental implants is the overall improvement to your oral health. When a patient experiences tooth loss, the surrounding bone and tissue will begin to deteriorate with time. As the years pass, this degeneration can lead to further tooth loss and other oral health issues. Dental implants are the only restorative treatment that can stop, and even reverse, this bone atrophy. As the surgically embedded implant posts heal, they will fuse with your bone through a process called osseointegration. This will ultimately help to stimulate and strengthen your jaw. These unique advantages have made dental implants an ideal restorative treatment for millions of patients.
If you are missing teeth, dental implants can offer unrivaled improvements to your oral health and function. To find out how dental implants can restore your or your loved one's smile, contact our friendly staff today to schedule a consultation.
