Tooth implants copy natural teeth. Tooth implants are attached in the bone and come out of the gum tissue just like natural teeth. The new teeth do not come out. They look and feel just like natural teeth. Teeth implants are a great and functional alternative to old fashioned removable dentures.
The fully restored tooth implant is composed of the implant, abutment and crown. The implant is a titanium cylinder placed into the jaw bone. The abutment inserts into the implant and provides the foundation for the beautiful porcelain crown. The crown mimics the natural teeth in color and appearance.
Why get a tooth implant?
In one study, 42% of people 65 and have a missing tooth or teeth. Tooth implants offer the greatest long term success and the represent the best way to replace missing teeth. Old fashioned dentures can work ok in some patients. However, most often old fashioned dentures are extremely frustrating to patients. Furthermore, ill-fitting dentures contribute to the loss of supporting teeth or bone, and accelerate the deterioration of your mouth.
Other tooth replacement options?
You can go toothless. This creates a change in eating habits, quality of speech, and level of self-esteem. Unfortunately, there is a social perception to look down on people with missing teeth. People with missing teeth are thought of as being uneducated, lazy and lower class.
