Do Dental Implants Work Like Real Teeth?

When you replace missing teeth with dental implants, the following days may take getting used to. Following the procedure, it will take time to get used to the feeling of the implant resting in your mouth, and pressure using the teeth. Because of these new sensations, you will need to follow the care instructions from Dr. O’Brien and the rest of the staff at Sitwell Dental while the implant heals. One common question many patients have before and after surgery is if dental implants feel like real teeth.


When you look at a dental implant, it will look like a natural tooth. The procedure of the dental implant includes your new teeth placed into your jaw, with titanium, so they appear like natural rooted teeth. The implant is capped with a crown, that is shaped and colored to look like your natural teeth.


The security of the dental implant leaves fewer restrictions after you replace missing teeth. Unlike other types of prosthodontics, such as dentures, implants do not slip out of place. Once the implant is fully healed, most of your favorite foods will be able to be enjoyed without any concern. With proper oral hygiene, making sure to brush and floss your teeth daily, check ups will go without a hitch!


Dental implants restore your confidence. When you finally make the step to replace missing teeth, you will feel back to your normal self and regain all your confidence back with your perfect smile. You will no longer have to miss going out with your friends to eat or be afraid to speak during meetings at work. It is unlikely anyone will be able to tell you have dental implants, so show them off!
