Age is not kind to teeth. As you get older, more things will start going wrong with your teeth and gums. Even as you maintain the healthy routine of brushing and flossing, time will begin to take its toll. Unless you have lived a highly abstemious life, which most people haven’t, then the various sugary and acidic food and drink you have consumed over the years will begin to catch up with you.
The corrosion, decrepitude, and falling out of your teeth is nothing to panic over. If you have always prided yourself on your looks and the presentation of healthy, white teeth, you can go on with that general attitude.
The best response to rotten teeth is the replacement. And to do that you will need to get dental implants. To be sure, nothing will ever be as good as your natural teeth. At a certain age, missing teeth cannot be replaced naturally. However, dental implants are the next best thing.
A dental implant is a metal post that is made of titanium—the same kind of metal that is used in hip replacements. Such implants and the material they are made of are perfectly safe. At the time of the implant surgery, the titanium post will be surgically placed into your jaw bone. In time, the metal and bone will fuse, completing the integration of the implant and the bone. This will happen over a period of several months. Once the surgeon has determined that the implant has been successfully integrated, they will be ready to attach your new tooth.
A great many people have undergone this surgery—with great success. It is not the kind of procedure that you should put into the hands of an inexperienced and unqualified professionals. The person you work with should be certified to carry out the surgery. They should have years of successful implants behind them. Most importantly, they should inspire a feeling of trust and confidence within you.
