Dental implants from Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ have many benefits, from restoring your ability to bite and chew to preventing the bone loss that typically occurs when a natural tooth is lost. Best of all, they restore your smile!
Dental implants are sometimes referred to as “tooth implants,” because they are a support for an artificial tooth. Technically, though, a dental implant is a titanium post that is inserted into your jaw. A connecting piece called an abutment fits on top of the implant, and the artificial tooth goes on top of that.
What makes implants feasible, and what sets them apart from all other tooth replacement options, is that the titanium post fuses with your bone. In other words, it becomes a part of your body. This is how the implant prevents bone loss, because in essence it is a replacement tooth root.
One dental implant can support one artificial tooth, while several can support a bridge or a full dental arch.
