Dental Implants Explained

Dental implants are a revolutionary and effective solution for replacing missing teeth. They are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gums. Once in place, they allow Dr. Zemskova to mount replacement teeth onto them. Dental implants provide a sturdy foundation for artificial teeth, making them a popular choice for people seeking a long-term, natural-looking tooth replacement option.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials like titanium. They are used to support dental prosthetics such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. Implants offer a fixed and permanent solution to tooth loss, providing improved aesthetics, functionality, and comfort when compared to traditional removable dentures.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement option. A metal post is surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gums, serving as an artificial tooth root. Over time, the implant fuses with the jawbone, creating a sturdy foundation. Once healed, a custom-made prosthetic tooth is attached to the implant, providing a natural-looking and long-lasting solution for missing teeth. Regular dental check-ups and proper oral hygiene are essential for maintaining the implants’ success.
