Dental implants are an ideal tooth replacement for people who are missing one or more of their natural teeth, and they’re available at The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ.
A dental implant is a metal post, usually titanium, that is inserted into the bone to replace the missing root. For a single implant, a crown and supporting structure are securely and permanently attached to the post.
Multiple dental implants, usually four, are enough to support a set of dentures.
The reason titanium is usually used is that it is so well-tolerated by the human body. There are very few instances of rejection. Dental implants offer a long-term solution to tooth loss.
Are you a good candidate for implant surgery? Because the titanium post is anchored into the jaw bone, it is important that you have enough healthy bone at the implant site. We can determine if you do. Age is rarely a factor. Dental implants have been successful for people of all ages.
