There are some very good reasons to choose dental implants in Brandon to replace any teeth you have missing. No other tooth replacement technique can compare to dental implants. The actual implant is a small titanium post embedded in your jawbone and on top of that is placed the crown, which is the only part that is seen. The implant fits beneath your gum line in the place where your missing tooth used to be. Whether you are missing several teeth or just one, dental implants are the preferred choice for many reasons, including:
- Dental implants bond with your jawbone, which gives a lasting solution to tooth loss. When dental implants are cared for properly, they may last a lifetime. This is why implants are simply the best solution for long-term tooth restoration.
- Your natural teeth are securely anchored to your jawbone by the roots in your teeth. Just like natural teeth, implants form a solid bond with the bone in your jaw. This allows the bone to be exercised when you chew, which is how the integrity of the jawbone is maintained.
- With the loss of teeth, bone loss will eventually follow. When a tooth is lost, the bone underneath begins to melt away. This may allow the cheek and lips to sink into the empty space, making you look older than your years. Implants in Brandon help to maintain your appearance.
Implant dentistry has been around for decades. Today, digital imaging equipment, computer tomography and ceramic milling machines make the procedure quicker and easier than ever. With this latest technology, you can see the results on a monitor before your treatment begins.
