Dental Implants are the closest tooth replacement you will get to a natural tooth

For sure, nothing can feel and act like your natural teeth. However, when gum disease and injuries lead to tooth decay, it’s good to know that dental implants are designed to mimic your natural teeth. Yes, dental implants from Bingham-Lester Dentistry in Crofton, Maryland, may not be exactly like your natural teeth, but they are the closest thing to your original teeth.

Dental implants explained

If you want a tooth replacement that closely resembles your natural teeth, you don’t expect it to be an overnight job. In fact, not even your natural tooth grows in one day! With this in mind, installing an implant takes several processes and months for successful treatment.

After properly evaluating your oral health, the dentist surgically inserts a titanium screw deep in your jaw bone. Since the screw is biocompatible in nature, it integrates with the jaw bone after a few months. Because the implant fuses with the bone, you will have a stable tooth replacement and have a certain amount of sensation when chewing and talking.

After healing, we then insert an abutment to connect the implant to a prosthetic component. Finally, we complete the dental implant treatment by installing a crown, denture, or bridge, depending on the number of teeth lost.

Why dental implants are the closest thing to your natural teeth

While dentures and bridges are worthy tooth replacements, none gets close to implants. Implants have the edge over their counterparts because they have multiple unique benefits, including:

  • Prevent bone loss: Only dental implants can prevent gradual bone loss when you lose your teeth. By continuously stimulating your jaw bone, dental implants deter bone atrophy.
  • Easy to maintain: What does it take to maintain your natural teeth? It’s probably brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting a dentist every six months. Taking care of your implants isn’t any different from maintaining your natural teeth.
  • They are natural-looking: Dental implants are designed to mimic your natural teeth, from performance, look to feel.
  • Last for life: When Dr. Vickii Bingham-Lester replaces your tooth with an implant, you don’t have to think about it again since implants last for a lifetime. Of course, you have to take optimal care of your dental implants to ensure they last for life.
