What are Dental Implants?

Dental Implants With A Dentist In Cary NC

If you have missing teeth, you may be researching dental solution options that can give you back the smile you want. When doing research on tooth replacement you will quickly find that dental implants are the premier option to restore a single tooth or multiple teeth. So, what exactly are dental implants?

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium rods placed into the gums and jaw that, within 3-6 months, become “new” tooth roots. This process of the titanium implant fusing with your jaw bone is known as osseointegration. On top of these stable new tooth roots are placed dental crowns which, when combined with the new tooth roots, become “new” teeth.

What Are the Advantages of Titanium Dental Implants?

  • Titanium dental implants are remarkably sturdy and will probably last for the rest of your life.
  • Titanium dental implants look like your natural teeth. We custom make them to be the right shade and size to blend into your smile. So you can feel confident to laugh and smile and have your photo taken. Nobody will know those aren’t your original teeth.
  • Titanium dental implants feel just like your natural teeth. Not only do they give your mouth that full, complete feeling, they are shaped so they feel natural in your mouth.
  • Titanium dental implants function just like natural teeth. You can eat foods that you love without worry.
