Have you ever wondered What Are Dental Implants? In this video you’ll hear from one of our many patients share his positive experience with Dr. Komarnyckyj and his dental implant procedure.
What Are Dental Implants? A dental implant is a tooth root replacement that is made of a small titanium post surgically anchored into the jaw. If you have lost a tooth or your existing tooth isn’t healthy, a dental implant procedure provides a permanent solution for holding a crown in place. If you lose a tooth as a result of an accident, tooth decay, root canal failure, or gum disease, your dentist may recommend a dental implant.
What are the Advantages of a Dental Implant? Dental implants are much stronger and more durable than dentures or a bridge. They provide a permanent solution to tooth loss. In the case of multiple missing teeth, a dental implant is used to support a dental bridge or dentures for more stability and less gum irritation. Whether used in combination with dentures or a bridge or on their own, dental implants make it easier to eat foods you love, to speak clearly, and smile with confidence.
