If you’re looking to replace a missing tooth with dental implants, you’re on the right track! Dental implants can typically last a lot longer than standard teeth and can even last a lifetime. Here are some other amazing facts about dental implants.

– Dental implants are made up of a titanium post and a porcelain crown.

-The implants are inserted directly into your jawbone. Their hold strengthens over time due to a biological process called osseointegration, wherein the bone hardens around the titanium post.

– If you choose not to replace your missing teeth, your teeth may loosen and fall out of position, causing serious oral health issues.

– Missing teeth can also cause your jawbone to weaken and deteriorate over time. Dental implants will ensure that your facial features and jaw look and feel strong.

– Dental implants can be personalized to match the look of your former natural tooth or to fit well with the rest of your smile.
