Advantages of Titanium Dental Implants
For many years, patients who had lost a tooth often had to choose between dental bridges, partial dentures or full dentures. Today, we have a more reliable and permanent option: dental implants. Titanium dental implants offer several advantages over other types of restorations. Our expert in single dental implants in Los Angeles can help you decide if this type of restoration is right for you.
Some of the advantages of titanium implants include:
Implants last a long time, and the titanium does not corrode. Although nothing is quite as durable as your own natural teeth, titanium implants are a close second. They are also resistant to acid damage and oral bacteria.
Implants that are restored with porcelain crowns or other restorations look just like natural teeth. The restorations can be made in the same color and size of the natural teeth so that they blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Other types of restorations can require natural teeth to be altered, which means that some healthy tissue may need to be removed from the teeth. Dentures can cause faster resorption of bone tissue, also. Implants do not rely on other teeth for support and they stimulate bone tissue, which makes them a healthier alternative.
Implants can be cleaned just like other teeth, and they require no special or complicated care routines beyond normal brushing and flossing.
Once your implants have fused with the jawbone and have been restored, you can use them just as you would use your natural teeth. This means that you can even keep eating all of your favorite foods without having to worry about damaging your restorations or having your denture slip and slide.
