Dental Implants in Alexandria

Dental implants are so popular because at the end of the procedure you are left with a “tooth” that is in all ways as good as the permanent tooth that you lost. It is fully functional, and if well taken care of through normal dental care, it may well last you for a lifetime. The dental implant consists of two portions: the titanium root and the ceramic crown. The ceramic crown portion is much like any other dental crown. However, instead of covering a tooth it is attached to the titanium root. The ceramic crown is made to perfectly match the adjoining teeth, and it is just about impossible to detect that it is not a permanent tooth. The titanium root portion is surgically inserted into your jaw bone. After a few weeks it fuses with the jaw bone, and at this time the porcelain crown can be permanently attached. Once the implant is in place, you'll be able to speak and eat normally and with full confidence. You can brush it and floss between your implant and your other teeth as you would do in any other instance.
