What is a dental implant?
Dental Implants replace the root system where your natural tooth is missing. We are able to place this titanium device directly into your jawbone, meaning it is solid and strong. Whats more, with time, your tissue will actually blend with the titanium due to its biocompatible properties, this type of metal is used by surgeons for replacement parts all over the human body.
With the implant placed, following healing, one of our dentists at University Dental Group will then place a dental crown on top, giving you a natural looking tooth with the same feel and function.
Are implants permanent?
Yes! Dental Implants are considered a permanent procedure, meaning that they are non-removable. Fused to your bone, the dental implant becomes part of your bone, this provides the strength you want. Meaning, no loose dentures and no gaps. There may be instances when a dental implant needs to be replaced, but those cases are rare.
A dental implant should last you many, many years. Besides replacing a missing tooth, dental implants help your teeth from shifting, help retain other devices including bridges, and restore your function and most importantly, your smile.
