The dental implants available at Advanced Dentistry of Charlotte provide support for the most realistic replacement teeth available: artificial teeth that look and function like the real thing. With proper care, dental implants can last the rest of your life.
Dental implants are made from titanium or zirconia. These lightweight metal posts are surgically placed into the jaw and fuse with the bone. They should be thought of as artificial tooth roots, because the provide the support for the artificial tooth, called a crown.
Failure Is Rare!
Dental implants as we know them today evolved steadily over the last fifty years or so. The last twenty years in particular have seen their greatest development, to the point now that failure of an implant is rare.
The artificial teeth that implants support are also long-lasting, but usually need to be replaced after ten to fifteen years. They won’t decay, but usually wear down from use. But not always: with proper care, implant-supported crowns have been known to last longer.
