Get to know more about Dental Implants in Centerville

What began as an excruciating procedure during the times of the Mayan civilization has evolved into Centerville’s most practiced procedure. The dental implant obviously has a long history, but the short of it is that without dental implants; crowns and other reconstructive dental procedures wouldn’t be possible.

So what is a dental implant, and why would you want one? That is a good question, worthy of an accurate and understandable answer.

A dental implant is an anchor, typically fabricated from titanium (a very strong metal that is biocompatible with human bone and tissues), that is surgically implanted into the jawbone. This anchor will, after a period of healing, be used to hold dentures, crowns, or bridges in place, permanently. Dental implants last longer than the cement method, and they provide a more secure bite for patients who want to be able to eat their favorite foods easily.

Why is titanium used? As stated before, Titanium is one of the world’s strongest metals. It doesn’t rust or wear, and it is biocompatible, which means that it is easily incorporated into the body during osseointegration. What is osseointegration? This is a term that describes the process of the bones and tissues growing around the implant and effectively making it a permanent part of the jaw. The period of osseointegration takes at least 6 weeks, which is why dental professionals wait for 6 weeks or more before completing dental procedures requiring dental implants.

The idea of dental implants might be easier to grasp if you think about it this way; fence posts are not just cemented to the surface of the ground, post holes are made to the appropriate depth and the post is anchored into the hole using cement and soil. Once the post is secure with its anchor, the fence can be built against it. A dental implant is secure and immovable when surgically implanted by dentists in Centerville who have the skills and experience to do it right the first time.

Centerville dental implants have come a long way since the Mayans, and the dental professionals of Centerville take pride in their work – striving to do more for their patients than expected.
