To remain healthy and strong, your jaw bone needs to be continually stimulated by the pressure of chewing, biting, and talking. Each tooth has a root structure the extends into the surrounding bone material. As each tooth absorbs the forces of everyday mouth function, it stimulates blood flow in the bone surrounding the root.
In some cases, tooth extraction is the only possible treatment for men and women with tooth damage beyond repair. However, we make every effort to save the root structure. When a tooth is extracted, the jaw bone that surrounded the previous root structure begins to recede.
Fortunately, tooth implants provide a new, artificial root that helps to keep the surrounding bone healthy and strong. A dental implant a heavy-duty titanium post that replaces the original root and eventually integrates into the surrounding bone.
After the implant has been placed and the surrounding bone has healed and integrated with the implant, a post is inserted into the implant. The new artificial tooth, or crown, is then attached to the post. Implant restoration is a safe and effective treatment for tooth loss.
