If you’re looking for a permanent solution to missing teeth or teeth that are heavily chipped and damaged, dental implants can be a viable solution. Unlike dentures and bridges, dental implants can potentially last for a lifetime, allowing it to be placed without need for further worries. Additionally, implants have the additional benefit of preventing further tooth loss. The effects of having missing teeth can be detrimental to a person’s health. It can cause you discomfort and make you self-conscious of smiling, which puts you at risk of losing self-confidence. At Precision Dental Center, we are your premier source of dental implants in Midwest City.
The way that dental implants work is a simple, but intensive process. The dental implant is a titanium root that is inserted into the jawbone. Due to the nature of titanium, the implant will fuse with the surround jawbone in a process called osseointegration. The fusion causes the implant to have great stability and strength. Following the insertion of the implant, a replacement tooth, usually made with tooth-colored material or metal, is attached to the implant completing the implant.
Due to the strength of the implant, replacement teeth function like a natural, healthy tooth. You’ll find that despite its artificial nature, you won’t need to make any adjustments to how or what you eat. Following the implant, you can treat and care for your new replacement tooth as if it were just a regular tooth.
