Do you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth? Maybe your dentures don't feel secure. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing. If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, dental implants is what you need.
Dental implants are teeth that can look and feel just like your own!
Long-term studies continue to show improving success rates for implants.
They are more durable than their restorative counterparts (bridges and dentures). Implants offer a permanent solution to tooth loss and beautiful smile. Another advantage is that dental implants cannot decay and have cavities but still have to be well looked after. They are also good for your overall oral health since they do not require alternation of other near by teeth.
Although there is a number of a restorative option for the treatment of missing teeth, none have proven to be as functionally effective and durable as dental implants. In many cases, dental implants may be the only logical choice for the restoration of all necessary functionality of the teeth and supporting structures.
And for some people, dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural.
The process of implanting artificial teeth is usually divided into 2 parts: by performing dental surgery placing the dental implant itself (titanium screw) in the jaw bone, once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, a small connector post called an abutment is attached to the post to securely hold the new tooth. To make your new tooth or teeth, your dentist makes impressions of your teeth, and creates a model of your bite (which captures all of your teeth, their type, and arrangement). Your new tooth or teeth are based on this model. A and then the replacement, called crown, is attached to the abutment. The crown will match your bite and color of your other teeth.
Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements that are used to counter tooth loss. The procedure is categorized as a form of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry, though it also falls into the category of cosmetic dentistry as well.
Strong, durable and natural in appearance, dental implants are among the most successful dental procedures performed.
In many cases, dental implants may be the only logical choice for the restoration of all necessary functionality of the teeth and supporting structures.
Teeth are lost because of:
People who have lost teeth might feel too self-conscious to smile or talk. Additionally,
biting irregularities caused by tooth loss can have a negative effect on eating habits and this can lead to secondary health problems like malnutrition. Regardless of the nature of problems related to tooth loss, dental implants may provide a simple solution with best results.
Dental implants are stronger and more durable than their restorative counterparts like crowns and fillings. Implants offer a permanent solution to tooth loss. They can also be used in combination with out restorative procedures. Dental implants can also be used to support a dental bridge which replaces more than one missing tooth, and can be used with dentures which makes teeth more stable and more strongly rooted, it also reduces effect of gums sliding down and leaving teeth root uncovered.
