Greensboro area patients ask if teeth implants are safe and effective methods of restoring the smile
Changes to the smile due to tooth loss require patients to consider a variety of restorations to maintain the health and beauty of their smiles. There are many ways patients can restore their natural teeth, including dentures, bridges, and dental implants. Speaking with a dental professional is the best way for patients to determine the most appropriate treatment for their smiles. However, patients who are viable candidates are urged to consider dental implants.
Dental implants, sometimes referred to as teeth implants, are titanium posts. They are made to act as the natural tooth root and are restored on top with a dental crown, which acts as a false tooth. Implants are also used in situations where patients with full dentures want to improve stability and strength. Implants are surgically placed in the jawbone during which the natural bone grows and fuses to the implant during a process called osseointegration. This is what gives the restoration its stability to support the crowns or dentures on top to ensure it functions like a natural tooth.
