The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants have a lot of perks to them. They are durable, and can last a very long time. If taken care of properly, they could even last the rest of your life. They are also the closest thing available to restore a missing natural tooth. If you want to be able to go back to life like you had before some of your teeth went missing, this is the best option available. Dental implants can reduce the sunken look that many people without teeth, or with dentures, notice, and it can also keep the integrity of your jaw intact.

How Dental Implants Work
The first thing that happens is an implant is surgically placed into the jaw. This will take anywhere from three up to six months to heal, but once it has healed, a post is put into the implant. On top of that post, a new tooth will be placed. The new tooth is a crown for the post, but it is made to match the teeth in your mouth, and it is able to work with the post and implant to give the impression that you have a natural tooth in that place. You can do one post for a few missing teeth in the same location, or you can do single implants in different locations in your mouth. Some dentists use the All-on-4 method for dental implants, placing four implants in a single jaw and putting a cap of an entire arch in place, instead of having to wear dentures.
