In the past, dental implants seemed to be available only to the wealthy.
Due to lowering costs, though, more people can invest in dental implants in Yuma. Have you considered talking to your dentist about restoring missing teeth with implants?
Dental implants are made of high-quality, durable metal (titanium) or ceramic (Zirconia). There are three parts to a dental implant:
Implant Post: Your Yuma dentist places the post or screw into your jawbone, where it will integrate within about four to six months. The post takes the place of the root of the missing tooth, stabilizing it.
Abutment: The abutment is screwed into the implant post. While bone and gum tissue cover the post, the abutment sticks out of it into your mouth. It secures the crown to the post.
Dental Implant Crown: The crown fits securely over the abutment. It looks like a real tooth, so no one will ever know that you’ve had restorative work.
The great thing about dental implants is that they look, feel, and function like normal teeth. They’re easy to keep clean because you can floss and brush them just like your other teeth. Implants also provide you with a stable, balanced bite, reducing the risk of jaw pain and cracked or broken teeth.
Dental implants can also benefit denture patients. Your dental surgeon will place three to six implants in your jawbone. The denture then snaps onto the implants. The benefits:
