Losing teeth, no matter the reason, is rarely a good experience. In fact, most would call it one of the most difficult things you’ll ever have to deal with. Teeth are integral to everyday life, and it’s amazing how much you use them. You don’t notice it until you lose one, though.
The good news is that if you do lose a tooth, you’re not out of luck. Thanks to advancements in dental technology you have more options than ever before when it comes to tooth restoration. Dental implants are a pretty popular choice. Let’s take a few moments to go into detail about them.
What are they?
When you see a dentist for implants, you’ll learn that implants are nothing more than a titanium post, inserted directly into your gums. The post is then covered up with a dental crown. You’ll end up with incredibly realistic teeth. Only a professional like Dr. Youssef Saad can tell the difference.
A question we often get here at Pearl Smile Dental in Fort Worth, Texas, is why you’d want implants. After all, getting a titanium insert in your gums doesn’t sound like much fun, does it? The reason our team suggests them is because implants function just like real teeth.
You do have to care for your implants like you would your real teeth. This ensures you don’t end up with the same problems that required implants.
