Dental implants in Vega Alta
When implants were first developed, they represented nothing short of a revolution when it came to replacing missing teeth. And that remains true today. Through all the advancements that they've benefited from, it remains true that they are the only full-tooth restoration that looks, feels, and acts like a natural tooth. A big part of that is because it is designed to be as close to one as possible. Here at Champion Dental PC, you don't have to continue dealing with empty space where you used to have teeth.
The part of our dental implants in Vega Alta
that are above your gum line are similar to what you would expect with a bridge. It's a tooth-colored crown that fits in near seamlessly with your other teeth. However, it's the part beneath your gums that sets the implant apart. A titanium post is surgically placed in your jaw, and it is the foundation on which our dental implants in Vega Alta rest. Your bone tissue grows around the post and fuses with it, so in many ways it is just as strong as a natural root. Having that root also preserves your normal facial contours and keeps your gum and bone from atrophying where the original root used to be. The tooth-colored crown is cemented to the post, and that's all there is to it. Here's what's not part of the implant: there is no impact on your other teeth, and there is no messy adhesive that can allow your new tooth to slide and move around. Your implant is 100% sturdy and will stay in place when you speak, laugh, and chew. Yes, you can eat even tough and crunchy foods with confidence.
