Dental implants replace your missing tooth root and provide a permanent fixed base for dental crowns to attach to. They are very popular as a long-term tooth replacement option that is immovable and will not shift or fall out.
Since they feel, look, and function just like real teeth, they are popular among many patients.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants in Durham, NC, are made with medical-grade titanium that we implant into the jaw bone. As it heals, the implant fuses to the jaw bone and forms an unbreakable union. This creates a foundation for your new teeth; you will never have to worry about slippage that can happen with bridges or dentures.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are incredibly versatile in restoring the function and appearance of one or multiple teeth.
There's no special care involved, you simply brush and floss them like you would your natural teeth. It's essential to also maintain dental check-ups and exams with your general dentist in Durham, NC.
Because they fuse to your jaw bone, you never have to worry about them slipping or falling out. This permanent, long-term solution allows patients to feel confident about how they look and what they can eat.
Dental implants also make eating incredibly easy. Do you love eating steak? Without teeth in place, eating meat or other foods can be difficult, as chewing requires the use of multiple teeth. Dental implants keep your smile looking natural while allowing you to chew and speak.
