Are Dental Implants Experimental?

Dental implants are tooth replacement marvels that have been placed in millions of people. They look and function just like the real thing, and are available at Turlock Dental Care in Turlock CA. Technically, dental implants are not replacement teeth. The actual implant is a titanium post that is inserted into your jaw. In a few months' time it fuses with the bone. One implant is a solid support for one artificial tooth. Several can support a bridge or full dental arch. Humans have tinkered with implanting teeth for thousands of years. The origins of modern dental implants date back to the early 1950s, when it was discovered that titanium can fuse with bone. An implant was successfully placed in a human in 1965. The technology has steadily improved, and today dental implants have gone from experimental to mainstream. It's the ability to fuse with the bone that make implants so successful. Some studies have shown a success rate as high as 98%! Cases of the body rejecting them are rare. Dental implants dramatically improve your ability to bite and chew. In most patients it is normal to near-normal. They restore your smile, too. But they also prevent the bone loss common to people with missing teeth. Are dental implants experimental? Far from it! At Turlock Dental Care in Turlock CA, we have placed many implants, on patients from Modesto, Patterson, and Oakdale. People also come to us for other restorative dentistry options.
