Dealing with loose or missing teeth can be a long-lasting, devastating experience. Whatever the reason may be for this experience, one main cause of loose or missing teeth includes the occurrence of gum disease, which occurs when bacteria growth caused by plaque and tartar buildup leads to gum irritation and inflamed gum tissue. Fortunately, there is a solution to this problem! A dentist in Ocala, FL can help remedy the issue of missing or damaged teeth with the placement of dental implants!
About the procedure
A dental implant is a synthetic tooth root in the shape of a post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. The “root” is usually made of titanium: the same material used in many replacement hips and knees, and a metal that is well-suited to pairing with human bone. A replacement tooth is then fixed to the post. The tooth can be either permanently attached or removable. Permanent teeth are more stable and feel more like natural teeth. The ideal candidate for implants is a non-smoker who has good oral health, including a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw, and healthy gums with no sign of gum disease.
