At Focus Dental Group, an implant is a titanium screw-like post that replaces the roots of your natural teeth. These posts fuse with the jawbone and anchor for replacement teeth, bridges, or dentures. Implants prevent misalignment and the need for other complicated dental procedures in the future.
After the implant fuses with your jawbone, our dentist will attach a single crown or bridge to the post. The result is beautiful new teeth that look natural and restore full function. You’ll never have to worry about messy adhesives or embarrassing slippage again. Your new teeth will be secure for life!
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that provide a stable foundation to support permanent or removable replacement teeth. They are typically made of titanium, a strong, lightweight metal that fuses with the jawbone to provide stability and security for the artificial teeth. Once the implant has connected with the jaw, an artificial tooth is attached to the end of the implant to restore the function of your missing tooth. The restoration can be made of porcelain for a natural-looking smile resistant to staining and decay.
One of the main advantages of choosing implants is that they can serve as both replacement teeth and a treatment option for tooth loss. They replace natural teeth, allowing you to eat and speak normally without experiencing problems typically associated with traditional dentures or bridges. They can also work to restore your smile if you have one or more missing teeth, helping you avoid complications that can occur from having a missing tooth in a prominent position in the mouth. Since dental implants are surgically placed within your mouth, they will never be at risk of shifting out of place like other options.
Another benefit is that since they replace the roots of your teeth, you can rebuild your jawbone and stimulate it to grow and regenerate itself. Traditional bridges and dentures cannot accomplish this task because surrounding gums and soft tissues only support them. Dental implants help to provide you with a healthy smile while also improving your oral health at the same time. By providing stimulation to your jawbone from within, you also help prevent the loss of bone mass in the jaw that occurs when teeth are lost. This helps ensure you have a sturdy and robust foundation for your new teeth for years.
Dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement option because they look and function like natural teeth. To learn more about dental implants, visit Focus Dental Group at 6770 S 900 E Suite 301, Midvale, UT 84047, or call (801) 255-7101.
