Dental Implants Can Do More Than You Think

Don’t live your life in hiding because of missing teeth. Today’s dentistry can give you back your healthy smile with affordable dental implants. Virtually every tooth loss problem from single missing teeth to missing arches can be restored with implants. A lightweight, strong material called titanium has been used to make implants since the 1970s. Your body won’t reject it, so the implantation success rate is very high. Placing an implant requires several steps. First, your dentist drills a hole and inserts the titanium implant into your jawbone. Next, the bone is allowed to heal and fuse with the implant. After healing is complete, the abutment and finally the custom-made permanent crown are added to complete the process.

Dental Implant Surgery Advantages

  • Dental implants are the only proven method of preventing bone loss due to missing teeth, which leads to the appearance of premature aging.
  • The implantation process does not involve disturbing or weakening healthy, adjacent teeth, unlike standard dental bridge placement.
  • Implant dentures are proven to increase comfort.
  • Implants look virtually identical to natural teeth.
  • Implants allow you to eat your favorite foods again.

Types of Implant Dentures

Various types of implant procedures can address your specific needs. The same implantation process used for replacing single teeth can also be used on multiple teeth to provide support for custom bridges. It ensures stability while halting bone loss. Implant treatment options also include both fixed and removable implant dentures. To replace all lower teeth with a full lower denture, five or more implants are placed to provide support. Six or more can anchor a full upper denture. Existing dentures can be altered so that they can be worn during the healing process. While removable dentures snap or clip into place and can be removed for cleaning, fixed dentures can only be removed by your dentist.

If you’re in good health, and maintain great oral hygiene, you may be a perfect candidate for implants. Consult a qualified implant dentist today to learn more about the best dental implants for your smile.
