What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, typically a titanium screw, that is placed into your jaw bone to hold a replacement tooth or a bridge or denture to restore multiple missing teeth. Contact Palmetto Oral & Facial Surgery to help you decide if dental implants are right for you.
Dental implants are a valuable alternative to an uncomfortable prosthesis. The implants themselves are small screws produced from titanium that serve a similar purpose to the roots of natural teeth. They are fused to the jawbone and support crowns, over dentures or dental bridges, helping them to perform like our natural teeth would. Once the implants are put in place, you’ll be able to replace anything from one tooth to a whole set with ease.
Given the numerous benefits and aesthetic qualities dental implants offer, they have become the preferred method of tooth replacement today.
What are the benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are widely regarded as the best treatment for loose dentures. Permanent dental implants are designed to make dentures much more secure and enable you to smile, eat and talk confidently. Dr. Shigley and the Palmetto Oral & Facial Surgery team can assist you if you have been thinking about investing in implants. The implants act as a foundation for replacement teeth. They won’t decay and are designed to last for the rest of your life. Implants can be used in conjunction with various dental procedures to improve our oral health. Once they are installed, you’re much less likely to face problems with slippage and discomfort.
