How Dental Implants Restore More Than Just Your Tooth

Losing a tooth impacts more than just the way you eat and chew your food. A missing tooth can also affect your confidence and how you feel about interacting with other people. If you are feeling embarrassed about how your smile looks, you may tend to hide it from others, which may not give them the impression of you that you'd like.

The good news is that dental implants in Salem offer a natural look and feel when replacing your tooth; and better yet, they also protect your dental health. Here's what you should know about dental implants.

How a Dental Implant Works

Dental implants offer a unique benefit that no other tooth replacement provides, and that is they restore your tooth root. This is important because when your bone doesn't have a root to support, it begins to deteriorate. Bone loss can affect support for neighboring teeth and could eventually result in more tooth loss. 

A tooth implant uses a titanium post that is placed surgically into your bone to take the place of your root. Titanium is a biocompatible material, so your dental implant will naturally fuse with your bone over time and essentially become part of your dental anatomy just like your root was, and it will keep your bone healthy.

Your crown attaches to the implant to complete your tooth and restore your smile. Because your implant acts as a root, it looks, functions, and feels like a natural tooth, and no one will ever know you were missing a tooth. 

The Additional Benefits of Dental Implants

Besides the look and feel or a real tooth, dental implants also provide other great benefits, such as:

  • Excellent longevity - Your implant has the potential to last a lifetime with the right care
  • A reliable procedure - Tooth implants boast a 95 percent success rate
  • A smart investment - Dental implants are a wise investment in your oral health because they provide exceptional longevity
