Dental implants have become more predictable, enduring and cost-effective than other dental solutions and are now stronger, more permanent and possible for virtually almost any patient.
Dental Implants And Their Construction
The anatomy of dental implants consists of two important features, a titanium post, and an artificial crown. The titanium post is incredibly durable and will eventually function like a tooth’s natural root. Placed directly into the jawbone, the bone will fuse to the post over time through a natural process known as osseointegration.
This happens in light of the fact that the body treats titanium like natural mineralized tissue. When this procedure is finished, a custom made dental crown, which is tooth-molded and made to exact specification only for you, is connected to the titanium post. Filling in the vacant tooth socket, the crown will enable patients to eat a variety of foods easily and smile with confidence. Crowns can be produced using regular looking materials, for example, porcelain.
Cost Of Dental Implants
Dental implants can last a lifetime, unlike bridges, partials, and dentures that may need to be replaced several times. For example, patients with dentures will require new sets every few years, especially if the atrophy of the jawbone. Bridges also require repair and replacement over time as well. Fortunately, dental implants are incredibly durable and last for decades, if not a lifetime. They also support bone health by preventing bone resorption. Extensive bone resorption requires reconstructive procedures such as bone grafting, which can be costly and invasive. We encourage patients to look at dental implants and their cost as a long-term investment in one’s health and wellbeing.
