Dental Implants And Structure
The life systems of dental implants comprise of two significant highlights, a titanium post, and an artificial crown. The titanium post is amazingly solid and will inevitably work like a tooth’s natural root. Set straightforwardly into the jawbone, the bone will fuse to the post after some time through a natural procedure known as osseointegration.
This occurs because the body treats titanium like natural mineralized tissue. Once this process is complete, a custom made a dental crown, which is tooth-shaped and made to precise specifications just for you, is attached to the titanium post. Filling in the empty tooth socket, the crown will allow patients to eat a variety of foods with ease and smile with confidence. Crowns can be made from very natural looking materials such as porcelain.
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.
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.
