These days, losing a tooth is significantly less disastrous to your oral health than in the past, thanks to a number of lifelike restorative dental options. For instance, bridges and dentures can be crafted from lifelike materials that not only reestablish the strength of your bite, but also the cosmetic appeal of your smile.
The most lifelike option, however, is a dental implant, which is the only solution that replaces the root of your tooth and, therefore, supports your dental prosthetic with equal stability.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants consist of three parts: a post, a connective abutment, and a restoration. The post is crafted from biocompatible titanium, and is inserted into the jawbone. During the healing process, your bone and the post fuse together, after which the post is topped with a connective abutment, which is then covered with a lifelike restoration.
Depending on how many teeth you’ve lost, one or more implants can support a crown, partial, or complete denture. Along with improved support, implants also help maintain a strong, healthy jawbone by providing stimulation every time you bite and chew. The stimulation, provided by the implant post, promotes a healthy flow of nutrients to the bone. Without the root, there is nothing to stimulate the jawbone.
Dental Implant Cost
The costs of your dental implants may be covered by your dental insurance plan or extended dental coverage.
