It’s easy to take healthy teeth for granted until they are gone. Living with missing teeth can be incredibly painful, difficult, and embarrassing. If you lack a full set of teeth due to injury, failing teeth, or chronic oral problems, dental implants from Broward Oral Surgery Associates could be your solution.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a strong, stable, permanent titanium fixture that is screwed into the jawbone to replace the root system of a missing teeth. Over the span of three months, the titanium implant fuses with the jawbone to help prevent bone deterioration and facial sagging. An artificial tooth made from a strong yet natural-looking material like porcelain or zirconium is then attached to the titanium post. Since implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even a full upper and/or lower set of teeth, implants make it possible to completely restore a damaged mouth and create an attractive, fully-functional set of teeth once again.
Dental Implant Benefits
Dental implants set themselves apart from any other oral restoration procedure, because they last an entire lifetime. Unlike dentures and bridges that last less than a decade and only stay in place with the transmission of force onto adjacent teeth and gums, implants directly support the jawbone and will last permanently if properly cared for. Implants are also the only form of tooth replacement that can prevent bone loss, preserve facial appearance, and remain in place without any need for periodic adjustments.
