The modern solution for replacing missing teeth
Your smile should last a lifetime. Replacing missing teeth is important to your overall health and also to the health of your other teeth. When natural teeth are missing, you not only lose functionality but also can experience a host of other issues. Dental implants are widely considered by dental professionals to be the best option for replacing missing teeth. They are used to support crowns, bridges and dental implants.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.
Why Dental Implants?
When an implant replaces a tooth, the implant provides stability to the jawbone without damaging teeth. Dental implants eliminate the problems associated with other replacement methods, and they allow people to eat anything with confidence. An implant can replace one missing tooth, but as few as four implants can replace all the upper or lower teeth. The number depends on the quality and size of your jawbone. The longer the implant, the fewer implants needed to support the replacement of many teeth. Your replacement teeth will be attached to these implants. Soon, you’ll be able to chew just as you did with your natural teeth.
What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?
Appearance; Dental implants are the next best thing to your healthy, natural teeth. Because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent. Other options such as dentures or bridges can lead to bone deterioration, and may interfere with eating, smiling, speaking and other activities of everyday life.
Dental Implants prevent bone loss; Bone loss occurs in the jaw when there are no tooth roots (or implants) keeping the jaw bone stimulated. Where there is no tooth, the jaw bone in the empty space deteriorates due to lack of stimulation. If no implant is placed in the first year of losing a tooth, that bone area loses 25% of its volume, and bone loss continues over the years.
Speech; With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip. Adjusting to removable dentures can mean struggling to pronounce everyday words. Not so with dental implants, which function like natural teeth.
Longevity; Dental implants will last longer than other restorative procedures. Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures. There is a 98% success rate for dental implants and even after 10 years in place, there is a 95% success rate for the implants.
Easier eating and bite strength; The dental implants will give a person the same bite strength as natural teeth. They will not cause the bone to erode over time. Dentures give a person only half the bite strength of natural teeth and they lose that strength over time.Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
Self-esteem; Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself. It’s will give a person the most natural looking replacement for teeth that have been lost. They can match the color of the natural teeth and they do not have the metal hooks that are used to keep dentures in place.
Facial sagging and premature aging; Facial sagging can be an unwanted effect of bone loss resulting from missing teeth. This is where the lower third of the face starts to collapse, gradually closing the distance between the tip of the nose and the chin. Changes can include excess wrinkles around the mouth, thinning lips and a more pointed chin, making the person look a lot older than his or her true age.
Convenience; Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
Who are candidates for Dental Implants?
Recent developments in dental technology help most people safely receive dental implants. Denture wearers or people who have had missing teeth for a long time suffer from bone loss due to lack of normal stimulation from chewing. In the past, people with insufficient bone have been refused dental implant treatment. Now, with advanced bone grafting technology, plus the ability to locate available bone through 3D imaging technology, the majority of people can receive implants regardless of the present volume of bone.
People with certain health conditions such as diabetes or habits such as smoking were previously considered not to be good candidates for implants because of the potential risk of failure of the implant or of infection. With recent developments in technology, many of these people can now benefit from dental implants.
