Have you lost a tooth and are thinking about a dental implant? If so, you have come to the right place! Our team here at Best Dentistry in Seattle, Washington, offers dental implants, so we are happy to tell you how dental implants work.
In a nutshell, dental implants are a popular form of tooth restoration. Implants can also be used to support dentures and for other reasons that your dentist, Dr. Linh Nguyen, will explain to you. A big benefit of dental implants is they can be matched to blend in with your surrounding teeth, so no one will notice the implant.
Dental implants are surgically placed inside your jaw. This is because your implant acts as the root of your tooth, so having a dental implant can keep your new tooth strong. If you go too long without a tooth, you could suffer from bone loss, which is why by having the implant in place of the root, your jaw can stay healthy and strong.
