New-Age Dental Implants Can Restore Confidence to Your Smile
Dental implants –the artificial roots that dentists use to replace missing or severely damaged teeth – have been around for hundreds of years, but today’s implants are leagues ahead of, say, your grandmother’s dental implants. There truly has been a revolution in cosmetic dentistry and the quest to replace missing teeth.
Today, dental implants are replacement teeth made from titanium; the metal is strong – it does not rust or bend – and the tooth implant can capably support the bite when chewing or speaking. As part of the dental implant procedure, the implant bonds with the jawbone and a tooth designed exactly to your liking can then be screwed on to the implant surface, therefore restoring your natural smile.
The main advantage of replacing missing or damaged teeth with implants is that it negates the use of dentures, which can often feel loose and need to be removed and cleaned daily, potentially causing issues with oral hygiene.
