Greensboro dentist describes why dental implants are typically the best option
Dental implants are one of the most sought after dental restorations for patients in and around the Greensboro area. They can be the best option for patients interested in a quality restorations that will last for many years.
What are dental implants?
Drs. Steven Hatcher and Sona Isharani describe dental implants as tooth root replacements. A natural tooth is held in place by the bone of the jaw. The root is firmly attached and the crown of the tooth is the visible portion above the gum line. When a tooth is lost, it may be best to place an artificial “root” into the socket. This root is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the bone. When this is done, it stimulates the growth of the bone through a process known as osseointegration. The new bone growth will hold the implant in place just as if it were a natural root and give it stability and strength.
Why choose dental implants?
Dental implants are best for patients with sufficient bone structure. This ensures the implant placement will be successful. When dental implants are placed by a quality dentist, they have a 98 percent success rate. Patients with implants should visit the dentist regularly for examinations and maintain excellent oral hygiene at home. This ensures a healthy smile and therefore, a lifelong repair with dental implant placement.
