Dental implants are tooth replacements designed to be safe, durable, and extremely tough. So tough in fact, that a dental implant can be inserted in your mouth and withstand the heavy wear and tear of a lifetime of use and not wear. However, oral accidents are always a possibility, but fortunately, if one should occur and knock out an implant, it can be relatively easy to replace.
Dental implants are designed to crafted and shaped to fit each individual person’s need. The spaces left by missing teeth are never the same size and shape, and thus various sizes and shapes of implants must also be used.
On occasion, other forms of tooth replacements can become loose, and many require food restrictions. Dental implants are so tough, they do not require any restrictions and can hold for any meal, including steak. If that was not enough, they are also capable of growing stronger over time when connected into your jawbone via a process called Osseointegration.
