Dental Implants : Permanent Solution For Missing Teeth

Dental care has made vast improvements during our lifetime, yet millions of people experience tooth loss because of injury, gum disease and tooth decay. For several years, the only way to replace a missing tooth was with dentures or a dental bridge.Now dentists are offering patients the benefits of dental implants. Unlike traditional treatments of crowns, bridges , root canals and dentures dental implants offer a permanent solution for your missing teeth actually mimicking your natural teeth.

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that are placed within the jawbone after a tooth is lost. After the implant is in place, a replacement tooth is attached or it may be used to anchor a dental bridge more securely. Implants are typically made from and provide a solid foundation for permanent or removable teeth that are designed to replace missing teeth. By using an implant to fill the space in your smile, you may also prevent other dental problems.

There are three most common types of dental implants:

Root form dental implants are the most common. A root form implant is a screw-type implant shaped like the root of a tooth. It is placed under the gums and directly into the jawbone.

If the jawbone has deteriorated, too short or too narrow for a root form implant, a plate dental implant may be used. The plate form is a longer, flat piece of titanium placed beneath the gums and on top of the jawbone.

These implants are used only when there is not enough jawbone to support either a root dental implant or a plate dental implant. This dental implant is custom made and attached directly to the jawbone to strengthen the surface.

Making the decision to have dental implants can genuinely be life altering for someone who has missing teeth. There are numerous advantages to having permanent a replacement for a lost tooth. Dental implants:

-Look and feel like your own teeth
-Are designed to fuse with your jawbone so they become permanent
-Allow you to speak without the worry that your dentures/teeth may slip
-Eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures
-Work like your own teeth, allowing you to eat foods with confidence
-Give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself
-Are durable and will last many years –with good care, some implants last a lifetime
-Implants eliminate the need for cutting natural teeth to replace one missing tooth
-Offer a permanent solution, that cannot decay

Implant however, is not an option for everyone, as it requires surgery, patient should be in good health and further patients must have an adequate bone to support implant.But missing teeth can be replaced with naturally looking stronger materials with the latest advances in technology.It’s important to be aware that dental implants require the same care as real teeth, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups.

If you are missing one or several teeth and would like to consider implant dentistry to replace them, contact your dentist to schedule a consultation.
