Have you lost teeth? It’s a lot different than when you lost your baby teeth way back in the day. Unfortunately, these don’t grow back. A dental implant from Pinnacle Dental Associates in Albany can restore your smile with a lifelike replacement.
A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into your jaw. An artificial tooth fits on top of the post.
One of the things that make dental implants so popular is that they blend in so easily with the patient’s remaining teeth. They look and function like natural teeth, and are therefore an excellent, long-term option.
Another benefit of dental implants is that they prevent bone recession, which is common in people who have lost teeth. The titanium post goes where the tooth root used to be, and helps strengthen the bone.
For patients missing all of their teeth, implants can be used to anchor dentures, providing a much firmer, more secure fit. Many patients report newfound confidence in themselves, after years of embarrassment caused by missing teeth.
