The Benefits of Dental Implants - Dr. Santosh Paripaty
A dental implant is actually a replacement for the root or roots of a tooth. Like tooth roots, dental implants are secured in the jawbone and are not visible once surgically placed. They are used to secure crowns (the parts of teeth seen in the mouth), bridgework or dentures by a variety of means. They are made of titanium, which is lightweight, strong and biocompatible, which means that it is not rejected by the body. Titanium and titanium alloys are the most widely used metals in both dental and other bone implants, such as orthopedic joint replacements. Dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device. Dental implants are acts as an anchor, which gives a lot of confidence to eat, drink and enjoy life.
When you loose your natural tooth the jaw bone will shrink. This shrinkage will mage your face a little bit older than it is. This is when we consider a dental implant. Dental implants are stable and comfortable and there is no adjustment is needed after placement and normally it will serve for life.
The advantages of dental implants compare to a traditional denture are first one is improved appearance and second one is dental implants preserves natural teeth and the last important thing is it is a permanent solution. When you loose a teeth shrinkage of your jaw bone will cause your face to look a bit older and dental implants can stop this process. When teeth are lost, the bone that supported those teeth is lost too. Placing dental implants stabilizes bone, preventing its loss. Along with replacing lost teeth, implants help maintain the jawbone’s shape and density. Dental implants are stable and comfortable and there is no adjustment is needed after placement and normally it will serve for life.
