A Comprehensive Guide to Dental Implants      , Berlin, Connecticut

Dental implants are one of the best approaches to replacing missing teeth. Unlike other restorative dentistry options, like dentures, bridges, and crowns, implants adhere to the jawbone, making them as sturdy as the surrounding teeth. Since they are a permanent solution, though, those who decide to get them should have a comprehensive understanding of what the procedure entails. Below, Dennis S. Gianoli DDS, PC shares a few facts everyone who is considering implants should know. 

Advantages & Drawbacksdental implants

Of all the restorative dentistry options, dental implants are the most like natural teeth. They are permanent and don't need extra care beyond standard brushing and flossing. People with dental implants don't worry their artificial teeth will slip or fall out when they speak or eat, nor do they require special pastes, brushes, or cleansers. The only major drawback of this procedure is that it involves oral surgery and multiple office visits. 

The Procedure

Dental implants comprise two main components: a titanium root and a ceramic crown. The root is inserted directly into the jawbone, and the crown is placed on top of it a few weeks later, once the gums have healed. Through a process called osseointegration, the implant fuses with the jawbone. It is the only restorative dentistry option that prevents the natural disintegration of bone—and sunken mouth look—that develops after losing adult teeth.
