You may not realize it, but many people will end up needing a replacement tooth at some point in their lives. Teeth can be lost due to injury or need to be extracted for a variety of reasons. When a tooth cannot be repaired and needs to be replaced, the best replacement option is often a dental implant.
Dental implants replace the entire tooth. Most restorations only replace the visible portion of a tooth. Implants go further, replicating the root as well as the crown. This is what gives them their great strength and stability. A titanium post is placed right in the jaw bone, which becomes the foundation for the restoration.
Dental implants are versatile. In addition to replacing single teeth, dental implants can be used to support all kinds of restorations, including dental bridges, partial dentures, and full dentures. Any and all your teeth can be replaced with dental implants.
Dental implants are built to last. They are as permanent as anything in dentistry. If properly cared for, they can last your whole life. And if the crown portion does become damaged in some way, repairs are easy.
These are just some of the reasons why you should consider getting dental implants to replace lost teeth. To learn more about implants or any of the restorative treatments performed at Prime Family Dental Care, please call our Laveen, AZ, office today.
