Benefits of Dental Implants
There are many benefits of dental implants but most importantly, they are the most natural replacement for missing teeth. Dental implants are a secure and natural-looking option. Patients who have dental implants can enjoy their favorite foods and activities without worrying about slippage or losing a denture.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth. If you’re missing multiple teeth, Dental implants can be used to support a complete or partial denture for a more stable restoration of an entire set of missing teeth.
Dental Implants What to Expect
For most patients, the dental implant procedure involves two parts:
- Placement of the implant – The first step is the surgical placement of the dental implant. A dental implant actually replaces the root of the missing tooth. Through the process of osseointegration, the dental implant fuses to form a stable bond to the bone.
- Dental Implant Restoration – The second part of the dental implant procedure involves the implant restoration. The dentist will uncover the dental implant and attach an abutment. The replacement tooth or teeth will be attached to the abutment to restore beauty and function. For a single missing tooth, the dentist will use a dental crown. For multiple missing teeth, Dr. Rafat may use a dental bridge or denture.
