Have you been hiding your smile due to one or more missing teeth? If so, you may want to consider dental implants. They offer an excellent tooth replacement option without having to deal with removable bridges or dentures. The resulting restorations look, feel and function just like natural teeth. You can smile confidently once again!
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the best available alternatives to natural teeth. They offer both a restorative and cosmetic solution to replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth. Implant dentistry is now becoming the standard for tooth replacement leaving you with restorations that feel, look, and function just like natural teeth.
Dental implants are titanium posts our oral and maxillofacial surgeon surgically places in your jawbone to act as tooth roots, providing a stable base for replacement teeth which can stand alone, or are used as anchors to support fixed bridges or dentures.
Next, we attach an abutment, which is a connector that supports an artificial tooth or teeth. The last part of your restoration is a porcelain crown, which is designed to blend in seamlessly with surrounding teeth.
Are Dental Implants Right For Me?
The best candidates for dental implants are those in good health, with healthy gums, and with sufficient bone mass to support an implant. They must also need to be willing to commit to meticulous oral hygiene practices to ensure the restorations stay healthy. If bone loss is present, a bone graft can allow you to enjoy the benefits of dental implants.
The Dental Implants Advantage
Implants are the only restorations that preserve healthy bone mass because they act just like like natural tooth roots. They also prevent teeth from shifting into the spaces left by missing teeth, which can prevent a host of potential problems. Moreover, dental implant surgery has been shown to be one of the safest procedures in dentistry.
With implants, you will be able to speak clearly and confidently. You will be able to eat all your favorite foods without any restrictions. Without teeth, your face may sag and appear sunken. Dental implants retain your facial structure, restoring your youthful appearance. Implants are durable, potentially lasting a lifetime with proper care. No other restoration can compare to the incredible results dental implants deliver!
It is often difficult to get a good fit with traditional dentures due to bone loss or shape of the mouth. Implant-supported dentures provide the stability needed to have great fitting dentures long term. Dr. Jennifer will first surgically place special implants into the jaw bone. Once healing is complete, the denture is fastened into place using tiny “snaps” that allow the denture to attach to the implants in the jaw.
Implant supported dentures are a more stable alternative to traditional dentures, be sure to ask about implant-supported dentures during your next visit!
