Dental implants are considered by most dentists to be the longest lasting, most durable, and most attractive replacements for missing teeth. By replacing the root of a missing tooth as well as the crown, implants are the closest restoration to a natural tooth. The American Academy of Implant Dentistry has stated that implants are the “next best thing to healthy, natural teeth.” Rooted in your jaw, implants are unlikely to need replacement in your lifetime!

The implant itself looks like a small screw, and it functions as the foundation for beautiful dental restorations. Implants securely attach restorations of all sizes to the jaw, from single crowns, to bridges, to dentures. These restorations are generally made from ceramic or another biocompatible material, and are matched to your teeth so they blend right in.

Implant Procedure

Getting an implant does require an initial surgical procedure, where a hole is made in the jawbone, and the implant is carefully placed. Following this, you will wait a few months while the implant takes hold, and will typically be provided a temporary crown or restoration by your Verona dentist to fill the gap in the interim. Over time, the bone and tissue build up and anchor the implant in a process called ‘osseointegration.’

Five Extraordinary Benefits of Dental Implants

1.) Beautify Your Smile

Missing teeth can ruin a beautiful smile. Dental implants can fill in your smile's gaps and improve your appearance. Dental implants are the next best thing to natural teeth. With dental implants, you will look and feel younger and more attractive.

2.) Improve Oral Function

Dental implants fit, feel, and act like natural teeth. Missing teeth can make it difficult for people to pronounce certain words. Dental implants can improve your clarity of speech. Tooth loss can also make it difficult for people to chew food. With dental implants, you will experience a dramatic improvement in chewing ability.

3.) Stop Jawbone Loss

The most common cause of jawbone loss is a missing tooth left unreplaced. Dental implants help to prevent bone loss and stimulate bone growth. Dental implants distribute chewing forces throughout the bone and minimize the wearing away of the bone.

4.) Prevent Teeth Shifting

Although your teeth feel as if they are set in the jawbone, they are capable of drifting out of place. When people lose a tooth, the surrounding teeth begin to shift out of place. Dental implants can prevent your existing teeth from moving out of place.

5.) Increase Your Self-Esteem

Losing a tooth can be a traumatic experience for many people. Tooth loss can lead to low self-esteem which can affect the quality of a people's lives in many different ways. Dental implants can restore your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
