What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small posts, often made of titanium, that anchor a sturdy new replacement tooth in your smile. These posts are placed in the patient’s jaw, in the empty space left behind from a missing permanent tooth.
Before long, these posts will painlessly fuse with the jawbone, making the implants as strong as natural teeth.The posts themselves, though, are not what people think of when they picture dental implants—the dental implant procedure needs a crown to be finished!
Once these posts are topped with a crown, a dental implant is complete. With a durable crown on top, your tooth implant will look just like its neighboring teeth. No one will be able to tell you’ve lost a tooth or had any work done at all!

Why Should I Get Dental Implants?
If you’ve lost one or more permanent teeth, dental implants are important for more reasons than one. The first reason is aesthetic. A good tooth implant can change your smile for the better!
Dental implants can serve as permanent teeth replacements that are just as strong and look just as natural as the rest of your teeth. By filling in the hole in your smile, you’ll have increased self-confidence at your next job interview, social event, or just the next time you look in the mirror!
But dental implants will do more than provide a simple smile makeover. If you’ve lost a tooth, replacing it with a tooth implant can make all the difference to your dental health!
When a permanent tooth has been missing for too long, the jawbone underneath it begins to weaken and deteriorate. If this goes on untreated, it can cause major health concerns down the road. A missing tooth also tends to cause the teeth alongside the space to shift, which can ruin your bite and cause expensive problems in the future.
Fortunately, placing a dental implant can stop any bone deterioration and help the jawbone strengthen itself again. A tooth implant will also keep your natural teeth from drifting and altering your bite, for lasting dental health.
