Dental implants have evolved from the realm of cutting-edge dentistry, to mainstream dentistry. They are permanent replacement teeth for people who have lost a natural tooth, and they are available from Five Star Dental Care in Valrico.
Implants are considered one of the most significant advances in dentistry over the last several decades. One of the things that people find most attractive about them is that because they are physically attached to the jaw, they are virtually indistinguishable from a real tooth, in both appearance and function.
There’s always a catch, though. To be a viable candidate for a dental implant, the patient must have enough health jaw bone to support the implant. Even then, it is possible to rebuild the bone with grafting.
One of the great benefits of dental implants is that they can strengthen existing bone. Without the natural root or an implant, the jawbone is weakened and can become fragile. An implant can prevent that from happening.
