Dental implants are the best choice for replacing missing or damaged teeth. Implants are crowns fitted atop a titanium post which is screwed directly into the jawbone. The post should last a lifetime (with proper care) while the crown may need replacing every ten to fifteen years.
There are many advantages in opting for dental implants:
- Simple and painless fitting
- Indistinguishable from natural teeth
- Function exactly the same as natural teeth
Having implants fitted is painless although there may be “some discomfort while your dental implant is healing” but your dentist will talk you through the procedure and further information can be found at http://yourdentalhealthresource.com/how-long-do-dental-implants-last-cosmetic-dentists-answer-your-questions/.
