Dental implants are a wonder of modern medical science. Unlike fillings or crowns, they consist of a surgically implanted root in your jaw with an artificial tooth placed over it. Due to a process known as osseointegration, the implant begins to naturally fuse with the jawbone over time, creating a strong bond resulting in a healthy artificial tooth. Here at Beechgrove Family Dental, we offer this service as an attractive alternative to dentures or partials.
How does the process work?
The process starts with a healthy patient receiving an implant made of titanium. This component is placed into the jawbone. Unlike dentures, these literally become part of your mouth through a process called osseointegration.
Our bodies naturally heal themselves by regenerating tissue and bone when needed, so the titanium implant has tiny holes in it to allow our bone tissue to enter. Over time, they fuse together to create an incredibly strong bond that leaves you with an artificial tooth that is just as strong as any of the real ones in your mouth.
Here at Beechgrove Family Dental, we are dedicated to helping our patients achieve the smile that they’ve always wanted. That’s why we offer dental implants to patients that don’t want to have dentures or gaps from a missing tooth. With this wonder of modern dental science you can have a natural look without any pain, and all in just a short matter of time.
