How do dental implants work?
Dental implants placed at our Pelham dental office are a remarkable solution for patients with missing teeth. Unlike bridges and dentures that only act as stand-ins for missing teeth, dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement that looks and works just like a natural tooth.
Over the last several years, dental implants have gained a lot of popularity because they are such an effective solution. The secret to the success of the dental implant is a very small titanium post that is placed in the jaw bone. This post eventually integrates with the surrounding bone and becomes part of the jaw.
Once this process is complete, a dental crown is made that looks like your natural teeth and then is attached to the implant in your jaw. Since the implant actually becomes part of your jaw, it is a very sturdy and durable base for the dental crown. After replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant you will be able to speak clearly and eat all your favorite foods.
