Many people have had a boost in self-confidence after restoring missing teeth with dental implants from The Yuma Dentist.
Nothing gives us more satisfaction than helping people improve their quality of life. With a new smile, they feel better about themselves. They feel more comfortable in public. They socialize more often.
Dental implants are an artificial tooth root that is implanted into the jaw of a patient, to replace a missing root. A single implant can support an artificial tooth; multiple implants can anchor a set of dentures.
Implants are most often made from titanium. One of their great benefits is that they help to prevent bone loss, which is common in people who have lost one of their natural teeth.
The success of a dental implant procedure hinges on the implant attaching to the bone. And this is the real beauty of it: titanium has the unique ability to fuse, or join, with bone. There’s actually a word for it: osteophilic, which means “bone loving.” This property has made titanium the material of choice in dental implants.
