What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are as close to the appearance of your natural teeth. You can live your life normally, don’t have to modify your diet, and the dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, so people won’t notice the difference between your implants and your original teeth. At doctorwisdom.com, you can be fitted for dental implants to enhance the appearance of your smile or improve your oral health. You can enjoy all the activities you have always enjoyed, without having to worry about your teeth loosening, falling out, or feeling pain. 

How do implants work?

Think of your dental implant as an artificial tooth root. It is in the shape of a screw, and it is implanted directly into the jawline for stability and structural integrity. The dental implant bonds to your natural teeth and your jawbone, so they blend in naturally with the rest of your teeth. If you have one or several artificial teeth or crowns, your implants are a sturdy base and serve as a structural support system for those teeth and crowns. 

How are they connected to your teeth?

When implants are affixed to the jawbone, they are connected with an abutment that is placed directly on top of the implant. This supports the crowns and holds them in place. The crowns which are placed in your mouth, are custom-tailored to fit the original shape of your teeth and blend in naturally with the teeth around them. 

Why implants?

Dental practices like Doctor Wisdom have been utilizing dental implants for over 30 years successfully. Dental implants are

  • Structurally sound and they fit in perfectly with your natural teeth. 
  • They are as close to your natural teeth as possible (in comparison to veneers, porcelain, and other cosmetic caps)
  • They are the strongest device available to support your natural teeth around the implants, and
  • The implant works alongside your new teeth to fit in perfectly and blend in with the rest of your natural teeth and smile

If you are looking for a safe and strong structural support for missing teeth, dental implants are one of the many options you might want to discuss with your dental clinic or office. Although there are other cosmetic solutions, implants are durable and will hold up well over time. Furthermore, they are a cheaper alternative to other cosmetic surgery and cosmetic solutions, and the appearance of implants is also far more natural than other cosmetic solutions you might be considering.
