Dental implants are an excellent way to replace one or more missing teeth. An implant is a tiny post made of biocompatible titanium that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. Overtime, the implant becomes integrated into the jawbone, replacing the tooth root. A dental crown then covers the implant, providing a durable and highly realistic replacement tooth. One implant can support one tooth replacement, while just a handful of implants can support an entire arch of replacement teeth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Durability and Strength: While dentures tend to slip and pinch, dental implants function very similarly to natural teeth. You will be able to eat your favorite foods with ease and, with proper care, dental implants can last a very long time.
Improved Oral Health: Traditionally if a tooth was extracted a bridge or removable parital denture would be made to replace the missing tooth. A bridge requires healthy tooth structure to be removed from the adjacent teeth in order to support the restoration. This weakens the teeth, putting them at risk for future issues as well as making oral hygiene more difficult. A partial also adds stresses to adjacent teeth and food is easily trapped. There are some instances where implants can not be placed and these types of restorations may be necessary but the first treatment option to be explored should be implants. Dental implants allow you to retain the healthy structure of the adjacent teeth as well as put off the need for a removable appliance.
Aesthetics and Speech: The replacement of teeth with implants are carefully designed to mimic your surrounding teeth. This leads to a highly realistic look and feel, allowing you to speak freely and smile broadly without anyone noticing.
