What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically put directly into the patient’s tooth root after a tooth extraction or when a tooth is missing. They lay a strong and lasting foundation underneath the gumline on which a full set of removable or permanent prosthetic teeth, single tooth or bridge is placed. There are several advantages to having dental implants compared to other tooth replacement options, and these are given below:
An improved appearance
Dental implants serve as the foundation for custom prosthetic teeth that feel and look just like your natural teeth and are designed to match your distinct tooth coloration, smile, size, and shape in mind give you an attractive, natural, and pleasing-looking smile.
Enhanced dental function
Dental implants provide a stable and robust foundation for your prosthetic teeth—enabling you to enjoy daily functions such as eating, speaking, and smiling—easily and naturally once again.
Dental implants don’t require special care, and removable dentures do. Those wearing dentures have to avoid certain foods and deal with constant fittings and adjustments, overnight soaking, and the application of messy adhesives. Implants are a permanent and lasting tooth replacement solution and require care just like your natural teeth.
Improved oral health
A significant improvement in one’s facial appearance and dental function are significant benefits of using implants. The even more beneficial feature is that they stop the advancement of tissue deterioration and gum disease by stimulating the bone and gum tissue below the gumline.
Using proper care such as daily brushing and flossing and ensuring frequent visits to your dentist for dental exams and teeth cleanings—dental implants, as a permanent tooth replacement solution, can last a lifetime.
Boost in self-esteem
The worthy emotional benefit of increased self-esteem awaits those who use dental implants. Much better appearance, enhanced dental function, and improved oral health lead to a healthy rise in self-esteem and the confidence in one’s smile and demeanor.
What does the process of getting dental implants involve?
To begin the process, contact us for an initial consultation to find out if you fit the requirements of receiving an implant. Your dental history will be checked; a routine oral exam will be conducted, we will take 3D CT scans of your mouth to examine the progression of gum and bone loss, and then conclude if you are an apt candidate for dental implants.
With this evaluation complete, and if you are a qualified candidate for implants, we will arrange the schedule of your surgery, in which your dental implants will be surgically implanted directly into your gums and the jawbone—under the use of a local anesthetic. It will then be re-covered and left for healing to take place.
In the next few months, your implants will progressively fuse to the gum and bone tissue, giving a firm foundation on which your permanent teeth will be positioned. If the dental implants are put in a visible location in one’s mouth, such as in the front, we will position a provisional prosthetic in place while the custom prosthetics are being made.
Once your implants have had enough time to bond with the bone and the gums, your dedicated prosthetic teeth will be secured to your dental implants utilizing a small abutment. Soon after placement, you can enjoy all the benefits of dental implants.
Dental Implants are an ideal tooth replacement solution for patients with failing or missing teeth. Whether you are in need of a full set of teeth replacement or want a single tooth to be replaced, get in touch with our office today for your initial consultation with us.
