What are Dental Implants?
Many suffer from tooth loss due to dental issues like tooth decay, periodontal disease or dental injury. With new technology and advanced improvements, dental implants are available to those who are dealing with the above. Dental implants are a replacement for the tooth roots. Dental implants offer a strong base for permanent replacement teeth which are made to match the patient’s natural teeth.
What are the benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer many benefits to patients who may need them including:
- Improved appearance
Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth and are customarily designed to fuse with the bone, and become permanent.
- Improved speech
Removable dentures can cause your teeth to slip out when trying to talk, causing you to mumble or even slur your words. Dental implants give you the confidence that you can speak without the worry of your teeth slipping out.
- Improved comfort
Since they are permanent, they act like your real teeth.
- Makes eating easier
Removable dentures can cause issues when eating. Dental implants function like your own teeth, which allows you to eat your favorite foods easier with more comfort, confidence and without any pain.
- Improved self-esteem
Dental implants allow you to smile again and feel better.
- Improved overall oral health
Dental implants offer improved overall oral health, as they are not tooth-supported like bridges, meaning they do not alter the implant or other teeth, leaving your other teeth intact. Dental implants also offer easier access between the teeth, which also offers improved overall health.
Dental implants offer dependability and durability that lasts for many years. Depending on how the dental implants are taken care of, they can last a lifetime.
Removal dentures offer the ability of being able to be removed whenever the patient wants, but this can cause embarrassing instances if they become removed without the patient wanting them to be. This is why dental implants are suitable for many, as the implants eliminate the embarrassment as well as the need for any messy adhesives to keep them in place.
Who is a good candidate for dental implants?
Patients with healthy gums, and enough healthy bone to hold a dental implant, as well as they are healthy enough to undergo any routine dental extraction or oral surgery are great candidates for dental implants.
We recommend patients be committed to their oral hygiene and maintain regular dental visits.
Patients who deal with uncontrolled chronic disorders like diabetes or heart disease, patients who have gone through radiation therapy to the head/neck region and if you are a heavy smoker need to be evaluated by a case-by-case basis with our dentists. As these cases are sensitive in nature.
