How Do Dental Implants Work?
Thousands of dental patients are recovering their courage to speak, smile, and laugh in public in spite of damaged and missing teeth. They are regaining the confidence to eat in the presence of friends and family. This new-found courage is a result of dental implants.
This concept is basic and involves three simple steps. The first step is to embed metal anchors in the jawbone wherever there are missing teeth. Next, small titanium posts are firmly attached to these embedded metal anchors. Finally, realistic replacement teeth are securely attached to the titanium posts.
Dental implants last longer than dentures
Jawbone structure begins to dissolve wherever a tooth is lost, and this can lead to genuine problems with facial structure and jaw alignment. Dentures simply do not address this issue because they are only placed on top of the gum rather than being implanted. Dental implants address the bone loss problem by implanting metal anchors in the bone.
Over time, the metal anchors begin to bond with the bone and maintain a solid foundation for facial structure, jaw alignment, and artificial teeth. While dentures will have to be replaced at certain intervals due to the changing bone structure, implants usually last the lifetime of the patient by preserving the integrity of the bone structure.
Dental implants are much more comfortable than dentures
Dentures are bulky and unnatural. Implants are attached to small titanium rods that are implanted in the jawbone under the gums. This causes the implants to feel like real teeth. The natural feeling of implants makes it more convenient and natural to eat, and also results in a stronger level of confidence in your artificial teeth.
Dental implants look more natural than dentures
Because implants are attached to rods which are implanted in the gums, the artificial teeth look entirely real and natural. Most people are unable to tell that the implants are not your real and natural teeth.
The staff is wonderful here ! They seen my husband on an emergency basis and they took their time with him, they thoroughly explained everything, everyone in this office from the front desk to the assistant to the doctor were wonderful! We traveled 45 minutes to come there and we will definitely be coming back! Finally found a caring dental office! It is worth the drive! Thank you all for your compassion and truly caring!
Had my second appointment this month and so far they have been a wonderful staff by showing that they care about not only the needs of patient but also asking if there’s anything in particular we want done. I’m overall satisfied with my visit and happy I’ve found a dentist who cares. Thanks!
Had an impromptu root canal this morning with Dr.Dunning and staff. They always take great care of me and fit me in last minute. Clean, Comfortable and Friendly office. From reception to root canal, great experience.
I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Patel and her staff today at FreshDental in Concord. I was very anxious about the appointment and any procedure, but Kimmie Bryant was very patient with me and spend a lot of time trying to calm me down and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Patel is very professional and has a naturally lovely personality. She takes the time to explain what needs to be done and provides valuable advice. I highly recommend Dr. Patel and her staff. A very pleasant visit indeed! I would definitely be back and would highly recommend the place for Dental work. - Erce Cobile
