What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are natural-looking replacements for missing teeth that also provide the same function as your natural tooth root. A dental implant is a small, sturdy, titanium post that acts as the root structure would for a natural tooth. A dental implant is placed into your upper or lower jaw bone. After the bone has grown around the implant, implants can hold a crown, bridge or over-denture just like roots hold natural teeth in place. Implants are very durable and can last a lifetime. They require the same maintenance as natural teeth; this includes brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups.
Why Should I Replace Missing Teeth?
Having gaps where teeth are missing affects the way the jaw closes. The remaining teeth begin to tilt and drift into the gaps. In addition to food becoming trapped in these spaces, TMJ problems (jaw joint problems) may arise because of jaw-line bite offsets.
Also, the longer you are missing a tooth, the greater the bone loss you will experience in that area. As soon as a tooth is lost, either from gum disease or an extraction, the supporting bone in the jaw begins to dissolve. Over time, more and more of the jaw bone disintegrates until it becomes very difficult to eat certain foods or even perform dental restoration.
Aesthetically, replacing missing teeth will improve your smile and preserve the integrity and shape of your jaw-line and face.
Types of Dental Implants:
Single Tooth Replacement
If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root.
Implant Supported Bridges
An Implant-supported bridge is a dental prosthesis supported by two or more implants replacing three or more teeth.
Implant Supported Partials & Dentures
Dental implants provide several advantages over other teeth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, implant-supported bridges replace teeth without support from adjacent natural teeth. Other common treatments for the loss of several teeth, such as fixed bridges or removable partial dentures, are dependent on support from adjacent teeth.
Unstable complete dentures can be successfully stabilized with conventional or mini implants. You will not need to use any adhesive any more to stabilize your dentures!
