Methal Dental Arts

At Methal Dental Arts, we recommend a dental implant when patients want to restore their smile and replace missing and damaged teeth. Dental Implants stand out as a state-of-the-art form of tooth replacement. Implants offer more benefits than alternatives like traditional dentures or bridges. As a modern innovation in dentistry, dental implants can benefit more patients than previously used techniques. Implants are routinely used to replace both single and multiple teeth.

What is a dental implant?

These high-tech replacement teeth mimic the look of a tooth and its structure. A strong foundation or “root” is created to support the implant by surgically inserting titanium cylinders below the gums. Once the structure is implanted, a high-quality crown or bridge is attached to create a natural-looking tooth that could last a lifetime.

What are the health benefits of dental implants?

  1. Prevent further tooth loss: Naturally, your teeth are held in place by their root and supported by surrounding teeth. When a tooth is missing, the surrounding teeth may be affected. They may become loose and tilt toward the space left by the missing tooth. Eventually, this may cause the loss of the neighboring teeth. Replacing the missing tooth with an implant gives you the look and feel of a natural tooth and provides structural stability to surrounding teeth.
  2. Protect against jaw deterioration: When your jaw is not properly stimulated by the root of a tooth, your body may start the process of bone resorption. This means your body will reabsorb the jawbone to repurpose the nutrients. Patients with bone resorption may experience pain while chewing, eating, and even talking. This can be prevented by anchoring the dental implants into the jawbone to simulate your natural root and tooth structure,
  3. Improve speech: Patients with missing teeth or dentures often experience speech changes such as lisps. Unlike dentures that can be ill-fitting or slipped, dental implants offer a more natural and secure option to help patients speak clearly.
  4. Create a better self-image and level of confidence: Often, patients with missing teeth are self-conscious about their smile. They often try to hide their smiles or even avoid talking to new people. Because dental implants offer a natural look and feel, they offer a boost in confidence and patients’ emotional well-being.
