Dental implants are a popular way to replace missing teeth in a natural-looking way. Dental implants are replacement roots for a missing tooth. A popular alternative to dentures, implants provide an anchor for replacement teeth. The replacement tooth, called a restoration, is attached to the top of the implant post, which is anchored in the jawbone for exceptional stability.
Dental implants have many advantages. They improve the appearance of your smile. The implants look and feel like your own teeth. While poor-fitting dentures can slide in your mouth and make eating and speaking difficult, implants can improve your speech and make eating easier. With implants, the nearby teeth do not need to be altered, so more of your natural teeth are left intact. Dental implants can improve your self-esteem. They give you back a smile that you can feel confident about. Implants improve comfort and convenience; they are part of your mouth, so they remove the discomfort and hassle of dentures. Implants are durable and, with good care, may last a lifetime. Dental implants require the same care as your natural teeth. Brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups are all necessary.
