Dental Implant Facts

Posted by Spring Creek Dental on Mar 7 2022, 07:07 AM

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to replace the roots of missing teeth. They are made of titanium and provide a long-term solution for teeth replacement. The crowns fitted on top of dental implants feel and work just like natural teeth. 

If you have one or more missing teeth, reach out to Spring Creek Dental in Providence, Utah, for dental implant solutions.

Important Facts About Dental Implants

  • Dental Implants Are a Permanent Solution 

Just like natural teeth, dental implants can last for decades or even a lifetime. Titanium, the material implants are made from, has great strength, high biocompatibility, high corrosion resistance, and, therefore, is highly durable. 

  • A Dental Implant Fully Replaces the Tooth Root 

Because the dental implant fuses with the jawbone in a process known as osseointegration, it provides the same strength and stability a natural tooth root does. 

  • Dental Implant Placement Is a Multi-Stage Process

Once you have decided to get a dental implant, you should be aware that implant placement is a multi-stage process. After the initial physical examination, the dentist makes an incision in the gum. Then, using a surgical drill, the space for the implant is created and then the implant is inserted. 

The implant will be fitted with an abutment and a crown (artificial tooth) only after the implant fuses with the jawbone.

  • Dental Implant Surgery Is Safe

Some people believe that dental implant surgery is difficult as it involves placing a screw inside your jawbone. However, dental implant surgeries have a very high success rate, of more than 97%. Anyone with good health and enough jawbone to support the implant can get a dental implant.

  • Dental Implants Prevents Bone Loss

After you lose a natural tooth, the jawbone starts to resorb. This results in changes in the shape of the mouth and can even affect your facial features. 

  • Dental Implants Are Easy to Maintain 

After the dental implant restoration is completed and the crown is fitted, all you need to do to care for your artificial tooth is brush, floss, and visit your dentist regularly. 

  • Implanted Teeth Are Just as Strong as Natural Teeth

Implanted teeth can perform all the functions natural teeth do, completely restoring the shape and bite strength of missing teeth.
