DENTAL IMPLANTS

A very common fear for many people as they grow older is tooth loss. Many people fear the idea of needing dentures, or may worry that their smile may become less attractive due to missing teeth. Fortunatelt, there are several options available to ensure that a lost tooth doesn’t ruin the look and function of your beautiful smile. One of the most common solutions for tooth loss today is a dental implant. Dental implants are a safe, effective and permanent solution for replacing one or several missing teeth.

What are Dental Implants?

To put it in simple terms, a dental implant is an artificial root that is permanently fixed into the jawbone. A porcelain tooth is then attached to this artificial root. In the 1950s, it was discovered that the bone found in the human jaw could actually permanently bond to titanium. Using this technology, we can now provide a replacement tooth option that is affordable, reliable, and permanent.

What is involved in the procedure?

During the dental implant appointment, a small titanium “root” is placed into the bone and allowed to heal and fuse to the bone for two to four months. Once the site has healed, a permanent tooth is made out of porcelain and fastened onto the implant. Sometimes, the implant is even stable enough that a temporary crown can be placed on the implant the same day. This means that in the case of damaged front teeth, we can often replace the teeth the same day as the teeth are extracted.

Dental implants have many advantages; one of the biggest advantages of single tooth dental implants over bridge-work (tooth supported), is avoiding root canals and decay on bridge teeth. Dental implants also offer much needed additional support to the jaw and bite.

Dental implants can also be used to replace multiple missing teeth by supporting permanent bridges, offering a permanent alternative to loose or ill-fitting partial dentures. These implant supported bridges are stable, secure, and can offer the same feeling and function as natural teeth.

Dentures and other less ideal forms of tooth replacement are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Whether you are needing to replace a tooth for the first time or have had dentures for many years, dental implants are likely to be a solution for you.
