What Are Dental Implants?
They are titanium posts that act as an artificial tooth root fixed into the jawbone. Dental implants can help stimulate the jawbone and stabilize dental restorations like dentures, bridges or crowns.
Dental implants offer many benefits, including restoring the aesthetics and function of your missing teeth. Implants will also help prevent your jawbone from deteriorating, which can happen as a result of missing teeth.
Most patients will qualify for dental implants if they are missing one or more teeth, although you will need to meet certain oral health requirements. We will first have to evaluate your health to ensure there are no issues that can affect the success of this treatment. If we detect gum disease or a weak jawbone, we will have to treat these issues before we proceed with dental implants.
Damaging or losing a single tooth can have traumatic impact on your quality of life. Not having a full set of teeth can negatively impact your general health, appearance, and self-confidence while a full set of teeth improves your overall functionality, and let’s you enjoy your food. When even a single tooth is missing, it inhibits your body’s natural process of chewing, and your mandible begins to lose bone and your gums may shrink. Repairing your missing tooth is vital, so neighboring teeth do not begin to shift into the void left behind. Dental implants are a modern solution that will help you smile, eat and socialize with confidence and without discomfort. Using a dental implant to replace the tooth’s root keeps healthy adjacent teeth untouched and provides the stability you need to carry on with your daily routine. A missing tooth can be replaced by a crown which is connected to a dental implant.
Advantages of dental implants include:
- Healthy and natural-looking smile
- Restored functionality for eating and speaking
- Support themselves, so adjacent teeth are left untouched
- Stable and comfortable fit
- Chance of immediate functionality from time of dental implant surgery
- Durable and easy to maintain
Dental implants typically last several years, and with the right care, up to a lifetime. It requires only your normal effort to keep the area clean and there is very low risk of tooth decay and fracture. There may be a higher initial cost of treatment but lower maintenance costs over time.
