What exactly are dental implants?
Dental implants are replacements for the root part of a tooth or teeth – indeed, they are the only way for a dentist to replace tooth roots. Standard dentures and bridges only replace the crowns of the teeth. Implants replace the roots, and crowns, dentures, or a bridge will then be secured on top.
What are the health benefits of dental implants?
Implants have numerous health benefits. They are made from titanium, which is highly compatible with the human body, and they encourage bone growth. Bone resorbtion or shrinkage is a common side-effect of tooth loss, and can give you a prematurely aged appearance. They also enable you to eat whatever you want.
