Dental implants have been hailed as one of the great advances in the field of dentistry, and with good reason. One implant can support an artificial tooth; multiple implants can anchor a set of dentures. Dental implants are available at Alaska Premier Dental Group.
Implants are an artificial tooth root that is inserted in the jaw of a patient, to replace a missing root. Implants are made of titanium, which fuses with the bone. In addition to providing a solid base for the artificial tooth, it helps to prevent bone recession.
An implant-supported tooth looks and functions like a natural tooth. When they are properly cared for, dental implants can last for twenty-five years or longer, and have a success rate of greater than ninety percent. These are among the reasons why dental implants have become the tooth replacement option of choice.
