At our oral surgeon office, we know people are living longer than ever. While regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups may allow many of us to maintain our natural smiles, sometimes our teeth just can't keep up. If you've lost a tooth due to injury or disease, dental implants can fix both your smile and oral health. An implant is a synthetic tooth root shaped like a post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. The “root,” made of titanium, is the same material used in many replacement hips and knees and is a well-suited metal to pair with human bone. During the oral surgery, a replacement tooth is then put on to the post. The tooth can be either attached permanently or made removable, but permanent teeth are more stable and feel natural. Call Springfield Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Springfield Township, NJ today for dental implant surgery.
