Dental Implants are a simulated procedure that replace one or more teeth without affecting adjacent teeth. They also support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture. Dental implants provide support for a denture, making it more secure and comfortable. Dental implants are natural-looking replacements for missing teeth that also provide the same function as your natural tooth root.
A dental implant is an excellent way of replacing a single tooth without the disadvantages of a fixed bridge or removable dentures. It is the ideal treatment for a missing tooth because it does not affect your adjacent teeth. That means no grinding or crowning of your natural teeth for bridges, and no clasps for removable partial dentures. Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompanies bridgework and dentures. A single tooth or a full arch of teeth which have been lost due to injury or disease can be replaced with dental implants. Titanium metal is used because of its compatibility with bone and oral tissues.
Dental implants don’t sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health. However, smokers and those with uncontrolled chronic diseases or systemic problems may not be good candidates for this procedure. Smoking impedes healing in the mouth and can reduce the likelihood that the implants will be successful.
Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence! They’ll allow you to say goodbye to worries about displaced dentures and messy denture adhesives. They are considered the best option for tooth replacement. A Dental implant is an artificial tooth root replacement usually made from titanium used to support one or more false teeth.
Dental implants are like your own teeth and will require the same conscientious at-home oral care and regular dental visits. In order to keep your implants clean and plaque-free, brushing and flossing is still a must.
After treatment, periodic follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your implants, teeth and gum’s to make sure they are healthy.
