How Do Dental Implants Work Near Braintree?

Dental implants are one of the best dental inventions of the last decade. Before dental implants the only option for those with tooth loss was dentures, bridges or plates, none of which felt, looked or truly behaved like a real tooth or teeth. Dental implants differ dramatically as they not only replace the missing tooth or teeth, but also the missing tooth root. The root of a tooth is one of the most important aspects for good dental health. They provide structure and foundation not only for your teeth but the surrounding gum tissue and jawbone. Without the tooth root teeth are likely to drift and jawbone strength soon deteriorates, which ironically can lead to further tooth loss. A dental implant halts any such process and encourages the restrengthening of gum and bone tissues after tooth loss. A dental implant consists of a titanium post, which is fitted into your jaw. Once this implant has fused with your natural bone an abutment and then replacement tooth or teeth can be fitted. Dental implants can be used to hold a number of dental prosthetics, such as dentures, bridges and plates. Dental implants can not only make a world of difference to the health of your mouth, but also your mental health, as no embarrassment and worry ever need occur because of concerns about loose dentures or wobbly fixtures. With dental implants you can eat, smile and laugh as normal, without the need for any messy paste or fixative. Whether you are currently missing one tooth, several or have sadly suffered entire tooth loss there is the possibility that dental implants could be the answer to your problem.
