Why dental are implants the best resolve for replacement teeth
Dental implants are a popular solution to the problem of replacing missing teeth. Missing teeth can affect how you feel about your smile, foods you eat, and your oral health. Unlike dentures or partials, you won’t experience problems with slipping or sliding during social situations or while eating. Conveniently, dental implants require the same care as your natural teeth – brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings. Unlike bridges, implants do not require alteration to your existing, healthy teeth. It is possible to support a dental bridge using a dental implant without altering your natural teeth, providing a more conservative approach to your treatment.
Do I need dental implants?
Many patients believe missing teeth are mostly a cosmetic problem. This is a fair concern as having a gap can result in further tooth loss, bone loss or bone resorption. It can cause other teeth to move and your jaw bone to change shape.
As your smile is something you use every day. Dental implants offer a long-term solution to complete your smile.
We spend time and great care making sure your dental implant matches your existing teeth. Losing your natural tooth can also put your oral health at risk.
Missing teeth may place additional stress on your remaining teeth and can lead to damage. When you are missing teeth, you may find it difficult or even painful to enjoy the fresh, healthy foods you need for proper nutrition. When patients lose teeth, their bone may begin to deteriorate, causing their facial features to have a sunken appearance. Dental implants help prevent this.
Am I a candidate for dental implants?
While most healthy adults are eligible for dental implants, some health conditions can change the effectiveness of the implants. A complete oral evaluation will help us determine if you have sufficient bone structure, if you are healthy enough for dental implant treatment, and determine if this treatment will be right for you.
What is the dental implant procedure?
Prior to beginning the implant process, we will perform a full examination including x-rays. Because the implant is attached directly to your jaw, we need to know the condition of your bone. If necessary, you could be a candidate for bone grafts, sinus lifts, and other procedures to assist successful dental implant placement.
The titanium posts for your implants will then be placed. Once you have healed sufficiently, you may receive a temporary crown over the implant while we wait for your permanent crown to return from the dental lab. Once the permanent crown has returned from the dental lab, you will return to our office to have it placed. The fit and appearance will be checked, and your implant will be complete.
