What are Dental Implants?

You may be wondering what dental implants are? They are artificial titanium tooth roots implanted into your jaw bone. These implants act as a permanent base replacement for severely damaged teeth.

Dental implants are made to be stable and robust. They will look, feel, function, and fit your natural tooth. Adjustments may need to be made, implants are designed to last a very long time when taken care of in the right way.

When Are Dental Implants Used?

Now that you know what dental implants are, you may want to see if you need them. Many different reasons for having dental implants could be beneficial.

Some reasons dental implants may be a good option for you include:

  • missing tooth or teeth
  • broken or damaged teeth
  • partials or dentures that have become loose
  • an infected tooth that needs to be pulled
  • Smile insecurity
  • Difficulty chewing food
  • And more

We always recommend you consult with your dentist if you are questioning any dental work. This includes dental implants. They will help you decide if you need them or not.

Materials that Make Dental Implants

There are two different materials that dental implants can be made from. These two options are zirconia and titanium. Both of these materials are completely safe options. They are both biocompatible and approved by the FDA.

While Titanium implants are metallic, Zirconia implants are made of ceramic. While ceramic may be more favorable for some, keep in mind that they can break easier than titanium. This is one of the reasons the zirconia implants have a higher failure rate.
