There is more than meets the eye when it comes to this metal tooth replacement.
If you were to look at a dental implant you might be surprised to see that it’s just a skinny little metal post. “What’s so special about that?” You might wonder. Well, these metal restorations are actually artificial tooth roots, and our Jenkintown, PA, dentists Dr. Tyler Sorensen and Dr. Diana Silva are here to tell you the main benefits you’ll enjoy if you decide on dental implants to replace your missing tooth or teeth.
Just Like Natural Teeth
The implant itself is made from titanium, so needless to say this restoration is extremely durable. Plus, dental implants boast very high success rates. This means that once the implant is placed within the jawbone you could have this tooth replacement the rest of your life.
In fact, if you are looking for the next best thing to real teeth you can’t do better than dental implants. Our Jenkintown, PA, cosmetic dentist will design an implant that even matches the look, shape and color of your other teeth so the only people that know which tooth is a dental implant is us.
Prevent Bone Loss
When you lose a permanent tooth you also lose bone density in your jaw. The roots of your teeth provide your jawbone with the stimulation it needs to stay healthy. By placing a dental implant into the jawbone to replace your missing tooth roots we provide your jawbone with the continued stimulation it requires to remain healthy.
Restore Your Bite
Since dental implants actually fuse together with the jawbone and natural tissue you can rest assured that when you bite down or chew that your new implant will be able to handle the force of your jaws. Not only that, but the implant isn’t going anywhere. You can trust that anytime you want to enjoy your favorite foods that your implant is ready for the job.
Simple, Straightforward Maintenance
When you get dental implants you can go ahead and treat it just like a natural tooth when it comes to cleaning and caring for the restoration. It doesn’t require any special tools, cleaning products or adhesives like dentures. Just brush and floss like you usually do and you’ll be doing what you can to ensure that your implant stays healthy and lasts a long time.
