Whether due to tooth decay, periodontal disease, genetic conditions, injury, or other related causes, there are millions of Americans who experience tooth loss each year. At Wilmington Family Dental in Wilmington, many of our patients have had their smiles restored with dental implants. As such, they know that this cosmetic dentistry option is a great way to boost smile confidence, speech clarity, and improve their overall oral health.
Made from titanium metal, a dental implant is a screwlike device that fuses with the jawbone to replace the tooth roots of a missing tooth. The implant is “capped” with an artificial replacement tooth (fixed or removable), adding stability to the surrounding natural teeth by preventing jawbone loss. Dental implants also enable patients to smile, speak, and eat the way they did before experiencing tooth loss, they are extremely durable, and they can last a lifetime when cared for diligently.
Wondering if an implant is right for you? In the majority of cases, patients who are able to undergo dental extraction or oral surgery are good candidates. Patients should also have healthy gums and enough bone density to hold the implant in place.
