Are you living with missing teeth? Have you been using dentures to replace the gaps in your smile? Dr Fuming Li provides patients in Millville and Voorhees, NJ with dental implants—the longest lasting solution for missing teeth.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that fit directly into your jawbone. The implant itself is a titanium post that serves as an artificial tooth root and supports a connective piece, known as an abutment. This connective component secures the prosthetic tooth, often a dental crown or bridge. After the procedure, patients walk out of our office with strong, natural-looking prosthetic teeth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- Support Jawbone Growth – When you lose teeth, the jawbone begins to deteriorate, as it no longer needs to support a root. But because the dental implant fixture acts just like a natural tooth root, your jawbone remains engaged and therefore remains intact.
- Durability – Dental implants become permanent fixtures in your mouth. Where dentures and bridges can slide or become dislodged, dental implants are as secure in your jaw as natural teeth.
- Longevity – Dentures and bridges need to be replaced after several years. Dental implants, on the other hand, can last a lifetime if you take proper care of them, saving you time, money and dental visits in the future.
- Natural Look and Feel – Most of our patients notice that dental implants feel and look just like their natural teeth. Because they are implanted directly into the jaw, patients usually don’t even notice them after they’re healed.
