Implants are a fixed option for tooth replacement that are placed into the bone in the mouth and mimic roots of natural teeth. They are usually made of titanium or its alloy as it is compatible with our biology. The process in which the implant heals within the bone is called osseointegration.
The implants support artificial teeth like natural roots support natural teeth. This procedure is great option for many patients looking for a fixed option to replace missing teeth. At Refresh Dental, we provide implant restoration services.
Implants can be a good option to replace missing teeth. They are currently the closest thing we have to replacing a natural tooth. If a tooth is missing or needs to be extracted, there are many options for replacement including an implant supported restoration. Here are some reasons an implant restoration may be suitable for you.
Increased denture support- Implants can be used to anchor dentures and provide additional support and biting force. Missing teeth - Implants can be used to replace teeth in a fixed manner without preparing other adjacent teeth.
Implants integrate with the surrounding bone structure and are fixed into place. Replacing missing teeth can decrease the chance of drifting/shifting of adjacent teeth, increase chewing function and help to maintain bone.
This procedure doesn't suit all patients. Young individuals who are still growing, patients with active tooth decay or gum disease as well as certain medical conditions may make you unsuitable for this procedure. Our general dentists will examine your current oral health to assess you're a suitable candidate.
