What Are Dental Implants Made Of?
Dental implants are artificial anchors that replace the damaged root of your tooth. They are commonly made of titanium, as well as other natural materials, making them fully compatible with the human body.
When your tooth has been badly diseased or damaged, a dental implant can be attached to your gum. This is then topped with an artificial tooth replacement (such as a dental crown), to give you the appearance and functionality of a natural tooth.
If you want a natural looking, long lasting teeth replacement option, dental implants may be ideal for you. Based in Hurstville, the team at USmile Dental can guide you through the implant procedure and restore the quality of your smile.
Can All Teeth Be Replaced With Dental Implants?
When it comes to teeth replacement, dental implants have a range of advantages over false teeth. A dental implant can be used to replace one tooth, several teeth, or even as a partial or full teeth replacement option.
Dental implants last longer than traditional dentures and they also support the overall strength of your jawbone. This is because the titanium and the jawbone bond, creating a strong foundation for your new tooth. Dental implants are also permanently secured in your mouth like natural teeth, unlike many dentures, which need to be removed at night.
How Long Will Dental Implants Last?
With proper dental hygiene, your implants can last for many years. In fact, when correctly cared for, your titanium implant should last a lifetime. The denture, crown or bridge attached to your implant should also have a long lifespan, lasting approximately 15 years.
