Dental Implants

Dental implants are a revolutionary solution for replacing missing teeth, restoring smiles and oral health. They can restore both the functionality and aesthetics of your smile. This advanced dental procedure involves the surgical placement of artificial tooth roots into the jawbone. These roots are made of titanium.

Dental implants provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth. They offer numerous benefits and improve your overall oral health.

Dental implants are small, titanium posts compatible with the body. They are surgically inserted into the jawbone. Over time, these implants fuse with the bone through osseointegration. This is a fancy word that means bone/metal connection. It creates a stable and long-lasting foundation. It’s like the foundation for a building.

Once the implants have integrated into the bone, custom-made artificial teeth are added. These teeth include crowns, bridges, or dentures. They are securely attached to the implants. The result is a natural appearance and function of the teeth.

  • Dental implants provide stability and strength similar to natural teeth. They allow you to eat, speak, and chew with confidence. Unlike removable dentures, implants eliminate concerns of slippage or discomfort during eating or speaking.
  • When teeth are missing, the jawbone can decay over time due to lack of stimulation. Dental implants stimulate the bone. Thus, they prevent bone loss and preserve the overall structure of the jaw.
  • With proper care, dental implants can last for many years, even a lifetime. They are highly durable and resistant to decay. They also provide a long-term solution for tooth replacement.
  • Dental implants closely resemble natural teeth in terms of appearance and function. They are custom designed to match the color, shape, and size of your existing teeth. The result is that they seamlessly blend with your smile.
  • Dental implants restore your smile and improve your self-confidence. With a complete set of teeth, you can feel more comfortable and at ease in social and professional interactions.
  • Dental implants can benefit many people with missing teeth. However, it is important to determine if you are a good candidate. The following attributes often define ideal candidates.
  • Candidates should have adequate jawbone volume and density to support dental implants. In cases of bone loss, bone grafting procedures may be necessary to ensure implant success.
  • Candidates should have good oral hygiene. They should be free from gum disease or active dental infections. Any existing oral health issues should be addressed before undergoing dental implant surgery.
  • Smoking can impair the healing process and increase the risk of implant failure. Candidates are encouraged to quit smoking before and after the procedure to ensure optimal outcomes.
  • Ideal candidates are committed to good oral hygiene practices. They include regular brushing and flossing. Candidates should have regular dental check-ups to improve the longevity of their implants.

Dental implants offer a remarkable solution for replacing missing teeth. They can restore oral function and improve oral health. Ideal candidates possess sufficient jawbone density. They follow good oral health practices and are committed to oral care.
