What are dental implants, and how can they replace missing teeth?

Tooth replacement after loss or extraction may leave many patients uncertain about the future of their smiles. Fortunately, our team at Glow Dental Spa encourages patients to consider the multiple benefits of dental implants, a way for patients in the Wayne, New Jersey, area to achieve restored smiles that function and appear as they did before tooth loss!

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a fixture used to replace one or more teeth within the smile. It is a post made of titanium metal inserted into the natural jawbone to act as a tooth root replacement. The post stimulates bone growth through a process referred to as osseointegration, which allows the bone to accept the implant and wrap around it, permanently fixing it into the jaw. Once solidified in place, the implant abutment above the gum line is covered with a restoration, either a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture.

Are dental implants reliable to replace missing teeth in the smile?

Many of our patients here at Glow Dental Spa choose dental implants for their many benefits. First and foremost, they are highly reliable, as they fuse with the jaw to offer optimum stability and strength. They are placed during oral surgery and allow patients to maintain the jawbone and eliminate the risk of dental resorption. Implants are long-lasting, function just like a natural tooth, and are incredibly versatile, replacing one, several, or all teeth in the smile using single or multiple dental implants. Patients with sufficient bone or are willing to undergo bone grafting to prepare for a dental implant are highly encouraged to consider this a solution for missing or extracted teeth!
