By definition, a dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into the jaw to hold a replacement tooth in place. When placed in the mouth, dental implants can be life changing.
Dental implants are often the best option for people who have lost a tooth due to gum disease, accidental injury, or other reasons. They Through a process called Osseointegration, the implant becomes securely attached to the jaw bone in a way that the mouth believes a natural tooth is still in it’s place and continues to grow bone around the implant.
Because dental implants look and feel so much like real teeth, the health of the mouth and body should not be sacrificed. In other words, often when people have replacement teeth such as dentures, bridges, or partials, the prosthetic set of teeth may feel slippery or cause problems with speech and eating/drinking. With dental implants, the wearer generally does not experience any oral impairment and tends to be able to chew and speak better than they did with a missing tooth or with other tooth replacement options.
Dental implants are also very aesthetically pleasing. When placed in the mouth, they can dramatically improve a smile. Below are some examples of dental implant and all-on-4 cases from Detroit area periodontists at Joseph R. Nemeth DDS & Associates.
