Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime, and with proper home care and regular checkups at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo, they can. But sometimes things go wrong, in spite of everyone’s best efforts. Dental implants are an ideal solution for anyone who loses one or more of their natural teeth.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone, where they fuse with the bone. Once they do they become rock-solid supports for one or more replacement teeth.
Mulitple implants, usually four, can support a full dental arch. They have a number of advantages over ordinary dentures:
- More stable. Because they are attached to titanium posts that have fused with the jaw, people have much greater biting and chewing power.
- Natural in appearance. They look more like natural teeth, and are easier to care for.
- Built to last. Because they are physically attached to the jaw, implants are long-lasting.
- Prevent bone recession. With traditional dentures, the bone around missing tooth roots begin to deteriorate. The titanium posts replace some of the tooth roots, so the bone is preserved.
Implant-supported dentures can transform your life, and they are available at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo. Patients come to our office from American Fork and Lehi for implants, general dentistry, and much more. Please call to schedule an appointment today!
