A missing or failing tooth takes a toll on your daily life! Your confidence is affected when you don't feel good about the appearance of your teeth. Your nutrition may be impacted if you can't properly chew or eat the healthy foods you would typically enjoy. If you're ready to restore your smile and reclaim your oral health, implant dentistry in Royal Oak may be the solution for you.

Why are Dental Implants the Best Solution?

Dental implants have earned the reputation over the years as being one of the most innovative and successful treatments modern dentistry has to offer. This is because implant dentistry is a reliable treatment with a 95% success rate that protects your oral health by replacing both your tooth and root.

Why is this important? Because when you lose a tooth's root, your jawbone begins to deteriorate. This could result in more tooth loss because of the lack of support for your surrounding teeth. Your neighboring teeth will begin to move and shift into the space. In this case, your bite may become misaligned, which can result in painful jaw joint issues.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is comprised of three parts:

  • The implant: It's a post made of titanium and surgically placed into your bone. The post naturally integrates with surrounding bone and tissue because titanium is biocompatible.
  • The abutment: Used to attach the implant and crown after the healing process is completed.
  • The crown: This is the part of the implant you see when you smile. It's made of ceramic porcelain and designed to closely mimic your natural tooth.

These three components work together to closely mimic your natural tooth and provide all the function and aesthetics you had before losing your tooth.
