A closer look at dental implants and their benefits
Widely considered to be the best method for treating missing teeth, dental implants provide a long-lasting, stable solution for patients seeking smiles that are more beautiful, functional, and healthy.
Support and durability
Whether you already have a full denture, or simply have missing teeth, implants can provide you with the strong and durable support needed to restore your smile. Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted directly into the jawbone to mimic your natural tooth root. Once in place, implants provide unparalleled security and can help prevent restorations from shifting and moving out of position.
The implants are placed during a minor surgical procedure. Typically, it takes between four to six months for the posts to fuse directly with the jawbone through a natural process called osseointegration. Once the implant has properly fused to the bone and the healing process is complete, our doctors can then use the secured implant to attach a special abutment. The abutment is then used as a point of contact for crowns, dentures, or other restorations. With proper care, the implants can last for a lifetime.
In addition to enhanced support for your restoration, dental implants can also achieve improved oral health. Following tooth loss, it is common for the surrounding area of the jawbone to deteriorate due to lack of proper stimulation. This can lead to bone atrophy, gum disease, and further oral health complications. Implants provide much-needed stimulation to keep your jawbone strong and dense, preserving the health of surrounding teeth.
Create a beautiful smile
Dental implants combine unparalleled support, strength, and health benefits, but they can also give patients a boost in confidence. For some patients, missing teeth can cause them to feel self-conscious and uncomfortable when smiling and speaking. With implant-supported restorations, patients can regain their confidence, and show off a more youthful, natural-looking smile.
In order for patients to benefit from implant-supported restorations, it is necessary for the bone to be healthy and your mouth to be free of gum disease. During a thorough examination with one of our doctors, we will analyze your jawbone’s strength and density to determine if this option is the appropriate course of treatment.
