Permanent, Natural-Looking Tooth Replacement
Dental implants are the best solution for replacing missing or deteriorated teeth. They are small titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone to act as new roots for prosthetic teeth. At Celebration Family Dental, we take extra precautions to ensure that the procedure of implant-based restorations is always comfortable and painless.
Advantages of Implant Restorations
- Prevent damage to teeth caused by loss of a nearby tooth
- Help in the preservation of bone tissue at the site of a missing tooth
- Implants behave functionally and aesthetically just like natural teeth
- They are comfortable and permanent so you can eat and speak with ease
Dental implants can restore the chewing as well as the aesthetic functions of your missing teeth. The placement of implants is done surgically by progressively shaping the jawbone to fit the titanium screw. Once the process of osseointegration i.e. the fusion of the jawbone to the implant is complete, prosthetic teeth can then be fitted on top of the implant.
Titanium is the material of choice for dental implants because it has the capacity for live bone integration and is biocompatible with the human body. In this way, the bone will accept the titanium implant as if it was a completely natural tooth.
