What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed or removable replacement teeth. They are designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth, and are an alternative to traditional dental bridges and dentures.

Dental implants are made of biocompatible materials, such as titanium, which is surgically placed into the jawbone. Over time, the bone will grow around the implant, securing it in place and creating a strong foundation for the replacement tooth.

Why should i get a dental implant?

One of the main advantages of dental implants is that they provide a permanent solution for missing or damaged teeth. Unlike traditional dental bridges or dentures, which can slip or become loose over time, dental implants are designed to provide a long-term and secure solution for missing or damaged teeth.

Dental implants also help to preserve the jawbone and surrounding teeth. When a tooth is lost or extracted, the jawbone in that area can begin to shrink and deteriorate. Dental implants help to prevent this by providing stimulation to the jawbone, which helps to maintain its strength and density.

How much does an implant cost?

In terms of cost, dental implants can be expensive. However, the cost of dental implants is often offset by the long-term benefits and improved quality of life that they provide.

At Panorama Dental Care, the price of a dental implant and crown is no more expensive than a traditional dental bridge.

Overall, dental implants are a highly effective and popular solution for missing or damaged teeth. If you are considering dental implants, it is important to talk to your dentist to determine if they are the right solution for you. Your dentist can help you understand the benefits and risks of dental implants and can provide you with more information about the dental implant process.
