Are you aware that dental implants are installed directly into your jawbone? This feature it is extremely beneficial as implants can strengthen your jawbone and give your teeth a new, permanent hold.
Dental implants are sturdy and durable because of a process known as osseointegration, in which the bone grows around the titanium post supporting the implant. The area between the bone and implant will strengthen over time to last a lifetime. No food restrictions are required with implants, as they will hold tight for any challenges your palette can throw at it.
The perks of a tooth replacement are impressive. A mouth that is missing teeth will fall in and potentially cause your jaw to weaken as you age. Furthermore, the void left behind in your mouth can become a haven for bacteria and food particles to collect. Not only can a dental implant fill the gap, but it will strengthen your jaw, fill out your facial structure, and return your smile to a more youthful look.
