The Importance of Dental Implants
Build back your self-confidence with Dental Implants
When you lose your natural teeth, your dentist can replace them with artificial substitutes. These substitutes are called dental implants. When the missing teeth are replaced it can build back your self-confidence, brighten your smile and allow you to speak well and chew comfortably.
Dental Implants permanent and natural looking teeth
Dentures or bridgework was the traditional treatment for replacing missing teeth. The advancement in technology however, has resulted in new procedures which offer a more attractive solution. Cosmetic dentistry today can provide you with permanent and natural looking teeth. In the dental implant procedure, surgery is used to fuse the tooth implant or multiple teeth implants into the jaw bone and then place a crown or crowns on the top.
Candidate for Dental Implants
If you have excellent oral health, healthy gums and enough bone to support the implants, you are the perfect candidate for dental implants. Once you have implants, they will last a lifetime because the implanted teeth are attached permanently over the bone. Dental implants are classified into two types; subperiosteal and endosteal. With subperiosteal dental implants, the dentist uses blades, screws and cylinders to fuse these onto the bone. People with bridgework or removable dentures are best suited for endosteal dentals.
Benefits of Subperiosteal Dental implants
Subperiosteal implants are placed on the top of the jaw. Their metal framework protrudes through the jaw so as to keep the tooth in its position. If your bone height is minimal, then you are the ideal candidate for this type of implant, because they can be used in place of traditional dentures.
There are several benefits to gain from wearing subperiosteal implants. Being a suitable candidate for these implants provides you with a successful and permanent solution to your dental problems. Since the implants are adjusted directly into your jaw, your dentist will make certain that your gums will not recede which usually happens with bridgework or dentures. With dentures there’s no need to work on healthy neighboring teeth which normally happens in bridgework.
Cosmetic Dentist : Dental Implants
In the dental implant procedure, your cosmetic dentist arranges the tooth implant carefully so that it is not too obvious. Dental implants can be used on one tooth or many teeth. The dentist will look at the number of bones in the jaw in order to make a decision on the number of teeth which will need the treatment.
Dental implants can be used also to correct sinus augmentation as well as other jaw bone deformities. Once the dental implant procedure is done the right way, they will remain throughout your life and provide you with a permanent fixture and a lasting and beautiful smile.
