Dental Implants

Posted on Thursday, November 24th, 2016 at 10:12 pm.

Dentistry has come a long way. If you have a missing tooth, there are now many options for restoring it back to its normal shape, appearance, and function. One of the most advanced forms and frequently the best treatment option of tooth replacement are dental implants. Whether you have a full or a partial denture, a bridge or have lost a single tooth, an implant may be the solution for you.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw. This retains a replacement tooth or bridge which is screwed and cemented over the implant. Dental implants can be placed by your general Dentist, or Dental Specialists such as an Oral Surgeon or Periodontist. These “artificial teeth” are stable and secure. Unlike removable dentures which rest on the gums and move around, dental implants can often make the sore gums and “clicking noise” associated with dentures a thing of the past. Unlike fixed bridges which use adjacent teeth as anchors, dental implants are independent of other teeth in the mouth. They are long-term replacements. Dental implants also look natural and feel secure, too.

There are several reasons for getting a dental implant which include:

  1. Replacing a tooth or teeth
  2. Supporting a bridge or denture
  3. Maintaining the underlying bone and prevent it from resorbing
  4. Resolving bite problems and function
  5. Restoring chewing
  6. Restoring speech
  7. Restoring digestion;
  8. Restoring smile and facial tissues.

Remember, just like your natural teeth, good oral hygiene and habits along with routine dental visits will help in the longevity of dental implants.
