What are the Benefits of Titanium Implants?
During a dental implants procedure, a titanium post is first inserted into the jawbone. Over several months, the bone fuses to this post, making a very sturdy replacement for the root of a missing tooth. An abutment is then attached to the end of the post, usually in a subsequent procedure. Finally, a false tooth is attached to this abutment to complete the implant. Though the total treatment time takes several months, implants have a number of advantages over other treatments.
Titanium is a very durable material that is resistant to most kinds of damage, including damage from the acids in our mouth. As a result, it lasts a very long time. In fact, titanium implants are considered to be permanent.
Dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth. The false tooth is normally made of a material that looks indistinguishable from a natural tooth. As a result, no one will know it is not real.
Does Not Damage Other Teeth
Placing a dental bridge requires damaging otherwise healthy teeth to support the bridge on each end. An implant is inserted directly into the bone where the missing tooth was, so adjacent teeth are not affected.
Easy To Clean
Dental implants are just as easy to clean as natural teeth. You can brush and floss them just as you would a natural tooth.
