How Implants Can Give You a Great Smile

How Implants Can Give You a Great SmileImplants give you several options for improving your smile. To understand why they are so popular, you only have to review the benefits. The following information explains how these artificial roots can be used to give you a great smile. However, first, we need to define the restorations.

What Are Implants?

Implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They can even be used for edentulous patients. Serving as artificial roots, implants resemble very small screws, and are made of titanium or zirconium. The artificial roots are surgically implanted so they can be used for the placement of crowns, bridges, or dentures. It takes about six months for osseointegration to take place, or for the implants to fuse with the jaw bone to provide a stable anchor. The “roots” are also designed with a connector, known as an abutment, so dentures, bridges, and crowns can be affixed.

The Ways Implants Can Revive Your Smile

Implants may be used as one root for one crown, or as several roots for several missing teeth, and for a bridge. They can also be used, as indicated, for teeth missing from the upper or lower jaw, or to treat extensive tooth loss. In addition, you can choose a complimentary tooth color, thereby making dentures, crowns, or bridgework look natural and attractive. Not only do implants stabilize the jaw, they also make it possible for the regeneration of bone. Therefore, you do not have to worry about further bone loss or resorption. Implants and the dental prosthetics they hold are as close as you can come to having actual teeth. When implants finally fuse with the bone, they are even stronger than a tooth's natural roots.
