Did you know that dental implants can restore a missing tooth and renovate your smile–and last an entire lifetime? It’s true! Dental implants are a relatively new development in the field of dentistry (invented in the 1960s), and their durability and impressive quality has made them extremely popular. Dr. Faith Cousins in Silver Spring, Maryland, is happy to talk to you about dental implants and how they can improve your smile.
If you have lost a tooth, for whatever reason, and do not replace it, your jaw can actually suffer bone loss over time. A dental implant is an ideal way to prevent such an occurrence. Dental implants are actually biocompatible with the human body. Implants are installed directly into your jaw; over time its hold actually tightens through a process called osseointegration, where your jaw actually integrates with the implant as if it were a natural tooth.
