This Elmhurst Dental Clinic Is The Best Choice For Tooth Implant Surgery If you’re looking for a way to rejuvenate your smile and oral health then choose the oral surgery services of Premier Orthodontics & Dental Specialists. They will give you implants to replace the tooth or teeth you may have lost due to varying unfortunate events. The newly announced regular implant services entail the use of an implant, a synthetic tooth root, which is surgically installed, in the shape of a post, into your jawbone. A representative for the company explained that the “root” is usually made from the same material used for hip and knee replacements: titanium. This metal is considered well suited for pairing with human bones. Following the installation process, a replacement tooth is then fixed to the post. This tooth, the representative explained, can be either permanently attached or removable. You may opt for permanent implants which are considered more stable and feel more like natural teeth. Implants are considered more beneficial than dentures and conventional bridges since the latter two are not fixed to the bone and are therefore likely to be unstable. According to the spokesperson, implants look more natural and feel and function more like normal teeth, with a stronger biting force. Because of how they are placed in your mouth, implants do not affect the health of your natural teeth. This also points to the reason why they are chosen over the other alternatives: they are known to last a lifetime while bridges tend to last only for seven years. “Implants are versatile. If you are missing only one tooth, one implant plus a replacement tooth will do the trick. If you are missing several teeth in a row, a few strategically placed implants can support a permanent bridge,” the representative explained. Slightly different from regular implants, mini implants comprise the use of a miniature-sized titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth. A retaining fixture is situated on the top of the implant and this snaps into a corresponding fixture on your denture. For more info, click on the link in the description!
