Dental implants are used to replace teeth that are missing or have become worn down due to age, disease or tooth decay. Dental implants are also known as dentures, since they are implanted in the gums in much the same way as your natural teeth. They are usually anchored into the jawbone through surgery called an oral surgeon’s placement. The implants themselves are actually held in place using a pocket made of tissue known as the implant pocket. Dental Implants are typically used when the teeth have become loose or chipped because of wear and tear, but new teeth need not be planted for other reasons. You can learn more at this page.
One of the most common uses for dental implants is the replacement of one or more lost teeth. It may seem like a simple idea to replace a missing tooth, after all if you can’t eat your food it doesn’t make sense to put a tooth in anyway right? Well, no, there are many reasons why you may need new teeth other than just forgetting to chew your food properly. Some people develop cavities or lose their teeth through disease or genetics. Now if that isn’t enough to encourage you to brush and floss every day, maybe losing one or more of your teeth to disease or genetics will.
By using dental implants you can regain the ability to chew your food, you can eat healthy foods without any fear of tooth decay and you can enjoy the smile you once had thanks to the new natural teeth you now have. Your oral hygiene routine doesn’t have to include regular trips to the dentist because now you don’t have to worry about getting any cavities or filling the cavities out; you can take care of your teeth and your oral hygiene all at home thanks to Dental Implants. The success rate for having implants inserted depends on several factors including your oral hygiene, your body type and your current health, so please consult your doctor before starting any treatment.
