What’s so great about dental implants?
In Richmond, dental implants give you back the full functionality of your teeth. Once they are in place and have had time to fuse with your jawbone, you will once again be able to eat whatever you like, and you won’t have to spend hours taking care of your implant-retained crowns either.
Your maintenance routine is almost the same as taking care of natural teeth. Another big plus is that your jawbone will stay strong and healthy with dental implants in it.
How dental implants work
Dental implants differ from dentures and bridges in that they are inserted into the jawbone to replace the roots of your lost teeth. Over the next 2-6 months, the titanium implants fuse with your jawbone creating a strong base that allows you to chew with full force.
One implant can hold up to 3 crowns on a bridge and there are clever ways to replace a whole arch of lost teeth with just 4 implants.
Sometimes, people have lost bone size and density, but there are ways to rebuild it using bone grafts, or we can get around lost bone in the upper jaw by anchoring the dental implants into the cheekbone.
A detailed examination will discover what needs to be done to get the implants in place. It’s the start of an exciting journey to give you back your confidence and independence.
