Are Dental Implants as Strong as Real Teeth?
If you are considering having implants, you may be thinking ‘are they as strong as natural teeth?’ and, ‘do they protect the teeth in the same way?’. In this blog post, we are going to talk about the materials used in dental implants and whether they are durable, like real teeth. As well as this, we are going to discuss the benefits of dental implants and explain whether they are a good replacement for real and natural teeth.
What materials is an implant made from?
The implant, which is the screw that is placed into the jawbone, is made from titanium or titanium alloys. Titanium has been proven to be great at integrating and connecting well to the bone. The specific grade of metal can differ with different dental practices. Ask your dentists or visit their website to find out the quality and grade alloy they use.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Like natural teeth, titanium implants are extremely strong and secure. As long as they’re taken care of properly, you can guarantee that they won’t fall out. They also feel comfortable; allowing you to speak clearly and chew without pain. In terms of appearance, the prosthetic teeth look natural so people wouldn’t guess you have false teeth. Dental implants are also a permanent option for tooth loss, meaning with proper care and maintenance they can last forever. Like your natural teeth, the cleaning and maintenance for implants is the same. Dental implants are known as the gold standard for the replacement of missing teeth. They are a trusted, safe and predictable procedure.
Dental implants vs real teeth?
Due to the fact that dental implants are inserted into the bone instead of the tooth’s roots (like most other dental treatments), they are strong just like real teeth are. This is because the implant replicates the connection between the bone and tooth. Overall, we believe that dental implant treatment is a great replacement for real teeth, and we highly recommended it.
