What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are an effective and lasting alternative to missing teeth, dentures, partials and bridgework for Tooth Replacement Options. The best way to describe the permanent teeth we implant is to compare them to real teeth. The Advanced Institute for Oral Health is the leader in Dental Implants in Nashville TN.
Missing Teeth Replacement Options
Your real teeth consist of a root and a crown. The part of the tooth that you see and eat with is called the crown. Beneath the crown is the root, which anchors the tooth to the jawbone and extends through the gum tissue. When you lose a tooth, you lose both the root and the crown. When the time comes to replace a tooth, we replace the root first with a titanium implant that looks much like a natural tooth root. Essentially, a permanent tooth dental implant is a new root that is made from titanium. A crown is then made to go on top of the titanium root to replace your tooth!
A Better Dental Implant Solution
Not only are permanent teeth dental implants better than conventional dental treatments, such as dentures or bridges, in some cases, they are even better than your own natural teeth, because dental implants never decay and never require root canals. A bridge has a limited life span and healthy teeth have to be cut down to have a bridge! Once healthy teeth are cut down, they are more prone to breaking down and needing root canals, getting decay and having to be replaced themselves! Many people with bridges find their bridges expanding as more and more teeth are lost over years, leading to a large financial investment! Dental implants are less expensive, in time and money, over the long-term, than other conventional dental treatments. Dental implants have an overall success rate of 90%. At the Advanced Institute for Oral Health, our average success rate for Dental Implants is over 97%. Replacing teeth with dental implants is not only a solid financial investment, but one that should last a lifetime!
