You have likely talked with someone who has had dental implants put in, and you did not even realize it. While many dental procedures in the past left patients with obvious marks of dental work, modern technology makes treatment hardly noticeable. Here are just a few dental implant results you need to see with your own eyes to really believe.
Result: They Look Just Like Natural Teeth
The process of placing a dental implant includes embedding a post, usually made of titanium, directly into the jaw bone and letting it fuse to the bone through osseointegration. Once the post is securely in place, a dental professional such as Dr. Nitin Doshi of National Dental places a custom-made crown or cap on top. This cap is formed to look just like the natural teeth, down to the color. The result? The tooth looks like all the other real teeth!
Result: A Few Implants Can Hold a Full Arch of Dentures
Dentures that do not slip or fall out while you are eating? Yes, please! Implant-supported dentures can hold a full arch of teeth that do not require constant removal or the use of bonding strips and paste. In addition, these types of dentures typically require the placement of only four implants, so patients do not need to worry about getting a post for every missing tooth.
Result: They Are a Long-Lasting Solution
Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. This means that, as long as a qualified professional placed the implants and the patients care for them appropriately, the implants can last up to a lifetime without requiring replacement. Be sure to brush and floss twice a day and to visit Dr. Doshi for your regular checkups.
