What are dental implants?

They are artificial teeth roots placed in your mouth. They are durable and look like natural teeth. They are like hidden screws, fixed in your jawbone, bound with your natural bone. They work as a strong base for one or two artificial teeth called crowns.

Why are Dental implants Popular? 

  • For their design

Unlike dentures, which can sometimes loosen and make you feel awkward in social gatherings, implants would feel and look similar to your natural teeth. They will boost your confidence and make you feel comfortable.

  • Durability

If properly taken care of, implants can last up to long periods. 

  • High attainment rate. 

If done accurately and maintained well, they stay for longer than other teeth replacement options. With increasing technological advancement, implants have a high success rate. 

  • Just like the natural teeth

Implants enable you to taste and enjoy your meal as your natural teeth do. Over time they will become a natural part of your mouth and help preserve the jaw bone and significantly reduce bone resorption.

Do You Need an Implant?

If you suffer from tooth decay, a missing tooth, broken tooth, or injuries, you can opt for dental implants. The above benefits will ensure you move in the right direction and live life with confidence. 

At What Age Can You Opt for Implants?

Once you have developed your jawbone completely, you can opt for implants. The only other requirement is the medical fitness of the patient undergoing the treatment. 

Are There Any Risks Involved in Surgical Implants?

Any surgery involves a certain amount of risk. It is pertinent to plan the whole procedure to avoid any complications. Update your doctor about any health condition, allergies, bleeding issues if applicable. An update will prevent any further complications during the surgery.

However, these are minor issues and can be tackled easily. The long term success of implants overshadows these petty issues. 

Choose wisely and keep smiling!
