Dental implants are the next-best-thing to getting back one of your natural teeth. If you have lost one or more teeth, call us at Koch Aesthetic Dentistry in Birmingham.
For some people dental implants sound too good to be true: replacement teeth that look and function just like the real thing. Not only do patients get back their smiles, they get back the ability to eat just about anything they want.
A dental implant is a titanium post that is placed in your jaw. Titanium is especially well-suited to this. It fuses with the bone in a matter of months, and rejection is rare.
A replacement tooth is mounted onto the implant. For those missing multiple teeth, an implant can support a dental bridge, or even a full arch. Because the implant has fused with the bone, there is no slipping or moving around while you eat or talk.
A replacement tooth that looks and functions like a natural tooth is enough to interest most patients. But another benefit of dental implants is that they actually improve your facial structure by helping to preserve bone mass. Bone loss is common with missing tooth, but because the implant replaces the missing root it won’t happen.
As if all this isn’t enough, the replacement tooth supported by a dental implant will never get a cavity!
