Are Dental Implants Worth It?

Are Decatur Dental Implants Worth It?

Are dental implants  from Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL worth the investment? Absolutely!

A dental implant, if you haven’t heard, is a permanent tooth replacement that looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth.

The actual dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post fuses with the bone to provide a stable foundation. This is vital because the root replacement post helps prevent jaw bone deterioration that typically occurs after a tooth has been lost.

When the implant has fused securely with the bone (it can take up to six months), a smaller post called an abutment is attached to it. It extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth (crown) is fitted to the abutment.

One dental implant can replace one missing tooth. A series of implants can anchor a dental bridge, or even a full dental arch.
