When you are missing teeth, it does more than impede your ability to bite and chew. It also compromises the aesthetics of your smile, potentially robbing you of your self-confidence. Fortunately, dental implants represent a long-lasting, natural-looking method for full smile restoration. At Jax OMS, we have the skill and technology to provide the highest quality implant results.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are rods, typically made from titanium, which are surgically placed within the jawbone, and function as artificial tooth roots. Once an implant has healed in place and fused with the surrounding bone, your regular dentist can place an artificial replacement tooth, custom-tailored to look and behave exactly like your natural teeth. Dental implants are widely considered to be the highest standard in tooth replacement.
Benefits of Dental Implants
There are several reasons for the popularity of dental implants, including:
- Allow you to enjoy your favorite foods once healed.
- Incredibly long-lasting with proper maintenance.
- Doesn’t require healthy teeth to be damaged or compromised.
- Provides a completely natural-looking, seamless way to restore your smile.
Why are Dental Implants the Preferred Method of Tooth Replacement?
For most patients, dental implants represent the best option for replacing a missing tooth, offering unique benefits that make them preferable to bridges, dentures, and other methods.
The most significant of these benefits is that dental implants represent the most conservative approach to tooth restoration. Unlike other methods, they don’t require any healthy, adjacent teeth to be sanded, shaved, or compromised in any way. With implants, a one-tooth problem remains a one-tooth problem.
Additionally, advances in dental implant placement technology enable us to carefully map out the surgery in advance and create 3D-printed guides for precise results, an easier recovery, and a shorter procedure time.
