Dental implantsThe overall condition and quality of your smile could be greatly improved with the addition of one or two dental implants. They replace the teeth you have lost, both above and below the gumline. They provide you with the same security, confidence, convenience, and function as your naturally rooted teeth. You can have dental implants installed at Botts Dental Spa in Cordova, TN, and serving the Collierville area.

The Structure of a Dental Implant
The very first modern implant procedure was done by accident in 1952 and by 1965 the technique was used in the dental field. Dental implants are small screws made of biocompatible titanium, which has properties that make it bind with human bone tissue. The implant forms the base of the device. A part called an abutment is placed on top of the implant so that it can support a new dental crown, usually made of porcelain. An implanted tooth is designed to withstand all normal oral functions and resist the effects of wear and tear over the years.

Reasons to Choose Dental Implants
You may have other tooth replacement options to think about (like partial dentures), but there are a few key reasons why you would want to choose dental implants:

- An implant is not removable like dentures, and there’s no risk of it falling out at opportune moments.
- There’s a really good chance that your implanted device will always be a part of your smile.
- There’s no need to revisit your Cordova and Collierville dentist every five years in the future to have a dental implant adjusted or restored. Just have the crown checked in about 10 years.

Dental Implants: Key to Preserving Your Dental Health
Missing teeth may present an unnecessary risk to your overall dental health. For one, it’s not ideal to have a tooth socket exposed and vulnerable to food getting trapped. Inactive bone tissue can degrade over time. There’s also a risk of the other teeth moving out of position, causing expensive orthodontic issues. A dental implant helps eliminate all of these risks.
