Like everything in life our teeth also bear the brunt of time. They don’t last forever and with all the chewing, grinding, biting, eating we end up losing some of them over time. Sometimes physical trauma can knock a few of our pearly whites out as well. In any case, it causes loss of function, aesthetics and a lot of times loss of confidence. Loss of teeth can be a traumatic experience for most of us. For some more than others. And we have looked to replace & repair teeth for hundreds if not thousands of years. The replacement options have changed from animal teeth/bone to plastic dentures to now dental implants made of titanium roots and crowns made of natural teeth like porcelain.
Dental Implants are made of the same metal which is used in other replacement procedures such as knee replacement which is Titanium. It’s a biocompatible metal which is placed to replace the roots of a tooth. After a few months, it’s used as a foundation to replace a tooth or multiple teeth. This is the best way to restore function and aesthetics in dentistry at the current stage and for a few years to come.
Over the years dental Implants have become more affordable and at Byford Smiles, we want to offer this treatment to as many as possible. We offer complimentary implant consults to discuss if you are suitable to have them. Our helpful staff is more than happy to provide you more information about dental Implants at any time.
