Dental implants are replacements for missing teeth, teeth that have been lost due to trauma or extraction. The implant is a metal screw to which a porcelain crown (cap) is attached. But how do they affect your future oral health? Your dentist will tell you:
– Implants can prevent jaw bone loss – the bone that supports your teeth
– Implants can generate better jaw bone density, making it stronger
– Implants cannot develop cavities – but the gums supporting the implants can get periodontitis (gum disease).
“You don’t have to live with missing teeth. Dental implants have a 98% success rate and the majority of patients are very satisfied with their restorations.”
