What are dental implants, and how do they work?
As we all know the best our own natural teeth that are well maintained are the best teeth to have. However,sometimes a tooth is lost or several teeth. The best alternative is a dental implant. The dental implant becomes the new root to not only hold a new tooth but to maintain good bone structure to prevent your jaw line from receding and allow you to retain your natural shape of your face.
Dental implants can be placed using the Two-Stage Protocol or today more and more patients are receiving the ONE-Stage dental implants. Since dental implants are simply an anchor, they can be utilized in many different ways, including single tooth replacement, multiple tooth replacement, and as a replacement for full sets of dentures. They can also be used to secure bridges and partial dentures.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
- If a person does not replace a missing tooth, over time the bone that used to surround the tooth will begin to shrink as well. Eventually, the jaw line may become deformed and result in the change of your face’s shape. Dental implants can prevent this type of bone shrinking deformity and help you retain the natural shape of your face. One of the issues associated with bridges is that healthy teeth have to be ground down in order to replace adjacent teeth. Dental implants do not require such grounding and healthy teeth remain healthy!
- With other forms of artificial teeth, especially dentures, it is common for people to experience problems with their teeth slipping or moving when they talk and eat. Many people also experience problems with their dentures not fitting properly. Ill fitting dentures can lead to gum inflammation and nerve pain. With Dental implants these issues are eliminated by using a secure anchor.
- If you are insecure about the way your teeth look when you smile, feel as though your teeth negatively effect the way you speak, or if eating certain types of foods is difficult or embarrassing, dental implants can be the answer. Dental implants instill confidence as your smile is perfected and eating becomes a pleasure.
