Important Facts About Dental Implants

Posted by Jeanne V. Devi DDS on Jan 7 2022, 08:30 AM

At Jeanne V. Devi DDS in Pasadena, CA., we aim to provide the best treatments for people who are missing teeth. When patients are looking for a long-term and permanent tooth replacement treatment, dental implants are frequently recommended. 

Dental implants have several benefits, including the restoration of dental functionality, an improvement in confidence and self-esteem, and better oral health.

Dental Implants — How Do They Work?

Dental implants are titanium rods or screws that are surgically implanted and attached to the jawbone. They act as artificial roots and serve as foundations for crowns. Crowns are permanent tooth replacements that look and feel like genuine teeth. 

After the crown has been secured, your dentist will simply join it to the titanium rod. As a result, you'll have a tooth replacement that looks and functions exactly like your natural one.

Facts to Know About Dental Implants

  • Dental Implants Have the Look and Feel of Natural Teeth

Dental implants, unlike removable dentures, are permanent parts of your body that are practically indistinguishable from natural teeth when you speak or eat. 

  • Cavities Cannot Form In a Dental Implant

The post and prosthetic are both artificial and will not decay. Therefore, a dental implant will never develop cavities! However, even after a dental implant, you must always be very vigilant about maintaining dental cleanliness. This will keep it in good shape and aid to maintain the health of the surrounding gum tissues and teeth.

  • Your Biting Ability Is Restored by Dental Implants

Aside from the unattractive gap, one of the most terrible consequences of tooth loss is the loss of one's ability to chew. The jawbone begins to lose strength without the support of strong teeth, and many people experience bone loss and bite weakness as a result.

The good news is that this bone and muscle strength will not be lost permanently. Titanium implants have been shown to encourage bone formation and aid in the restoration of lost biting strength. Patients can get back on the path to normalcy after they have a full set of chompers.

  • Dental Implants Last a Lifetime

Dental implants, like natural teeth, can last for decades, if not a lifetime if cared for properly. An implant has the advantage over a natural tooth in that it is not susceptible to decay and hence cannot form cavities.
