Replacement teeth supported by dental implants look and function like natural teeth: so much so that many patients can’t tell the difference between the implant and their natural teeth. These state-of-the-art implants are available at Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jaw. What makes them so effective is how well they fuse with human bone, a property that was discovered in the 1950s. Implants are noncorrosive and biocompatible.
A single dental implant can support one replacement tooth. Several can support a dental bridge or a full dental arch.
Implants and Bone Stimulation
An unfortunate consequence losing natural teeth is that the bone around it begins to deteriorate. It happens because the missing tooth root is no longer there to stimulate the bone through biting and chewing action.
Because a dental implant simulates the missing tooth root promotes good bone density. At the same time, implant-supported replacement teeth provide near-normal biting and chewing power: up to about ninety percent. With implant-supported teeth you can eat the foods you’ve always loved, without a second thought.
