You may have heard of dental implants, but you might not know exactly what they are or how they function. Dental implants are the tooth replacement option that functions most like your natural teeth. They are made of a small titanium post that is placed in the jawbone where you have lost teeth. The titanium bonds with your jawbone, similar to the way your natural tooth root does. Then the dental implants are topped with an attractive and functional dental crown. Here at Fulp Family Dentistry we specialize in dental implants and take pride in the difference they make in our patients’ lives.
The benefits of dental implants include:
- No diet restrictions. Go ahead, eat that steak or corn on the cob.
- No special care requirements.
- Look just like natural teeth.
- Don’t rely on neighboring teeth for support.
- Stimulate jawbone to prevent bone loss.
- With proper care, can be lifetime replacements.
Dental implants give you the ability to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life with confidence. You know your teeth won’t slip out, make noise, or look fake.
Instead, you’ll get a beautiful smile that requires no special care: just brush, floss, and make your regular dental appointments. Whether you’ve lost one tooth or all your teeth, dental implants can support a single crown, a multi-tooth bridge, or full dentures.
