When you meet someone who is missing a front tooth, what do you think? Do you wonder if they were in an accident? A missing tooth is more than unsightly: that space in the jaw can lead to bone recession, and other teeth moving around. A dental implant from Neal C. Johnson DMD in Billings can address these issues.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed in the patient’s jaw. One implant can support a single artificial tooth. Multiple implants can support a set of dentures.
Dental implants not only restore oraol health, they restore self-confidence. Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. Studies have shown that after more than 20 years, the vast majority of dental implants placed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons continue to function at peak performance. If properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Not only are they long-lasting: implants also have a high success rate, surpassing ninety percent. As good as that is, experts say that implants are going to get even better, and that improvements aren’t that far down the road. We can expect faster healing and even higher success rates.
