Dental Implants Cary

Dental implants are just one benefit of visiting a holistic dentist. With this permanent restorative procedure, a single lost tooth can be replaced, or all teeth can be replaced with dental implants as an alternative to traditional dentures. One primary benefit to the dental implant is that this solitary restoration does not impact surrounding teeth, as it may occur with a dental bridge. However, placing an implant into the bone, thus into the bloodstream, should be carefully considered before placement.

Dental Implants Cary, NC Further benefits of dental implant treatment are based on the patient's specific reasons for obtaining this treatment. For instance, when dental implants are used as an alternative to traditional dentures, which float on top of the gums, a greater degree of function and confidence is felt by the denture wearer.

Keeping in line with the philosophy of holistic dentistry, the dental implant is made with materials that are biocompatible and well received by the body. In this procedure, which does take several months to complete, a tiny zirconium rod is surgically inserted into the jawbone. The implant becomes integrated into, and very much a part of, the jawbone over the course of the months following the procedure. This creates the same kind of solid foundation that natural roots provide to the teeth we are born with. Maintaining biocompatibility, the permanent crown material used to top the implant is also created with tolerance in mind.

Through a well-planned device and process, the dental implant provides the restoration of an attractive smile, as well as full function for chewing. The durable materials contained in every dental implant create a surface that is able to withstand the immense pressure that occurs during chewing.

Caring for a dental implant is as easy as caring for natural teeth. Although the materials contained in an implant are resistant to corrosion and will not decay as natural teeth can, daily brushing and flossing is still important in order to maintain healthy gum tissue, which serves as a necessary support for both natural teeth and dental implants.
