Implants

Missing teeth can make you feel uncomfortable while talking, eating, smiling, and socializing. You may feel embarrassed by your smile and have trouble speaking properly. Missing teeth lead to a loss of facial mass which may contribute to sagging skin. It can also cause stress on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) aka your jaw joint and the muscles of the face.

When you lose a tooth, many options are available to restore it. Implants are a primary restorative option that offers a strong, permanent solution that replaces missing teeth and helps restore the full functionality of your mouth.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a solid foundation for a false tooth or a dental crown. These implants are made of titanium and are surgically inserted into your jawbone where your missing tooth is present.

A dental implant procedure involves three main steps: placement, healing, and maintenance. The placement of the implant involves two surgical procedures in which the implant is inserted into your jawbone. The healing period may take several months, during which the bone grows around the implant and fuses with it. Once we confirm your implant is healed a dental crown is placed over the implant to restore your smile.

What Are the Advantages of Implants?

There are several benefits to using dental implants over other replacement options such as dentures, bridges, or partials. Some of them are listed below. 

  • Dental implants are long-lasting and sturdy. They do not require much maintenance like other dental restorations such as dentures and bridges. You only have to visit your dentist once every six months for routine cleanings and checkups. 
  • Implants look natural and help restore your smile's aesthetics. They look like your natural teeth and blend in with your gums seamlessly. 
  • Dental implants can be customized to match the color of your natural teeth. They also feel like your natural teeth when you bite and chew food. 
  • With implants, you do not have to worry about misplacing or losing them, as they permanently stay firmly in your jawbone. 
  • Implants improve jawbone health because they act as artificial tooth roots that stimulate bone regrowth in the jaw area where they are placed. This prevents bone loss which can lead to complete tooth loss in the future due to jawbone deterioration. 
  • Implants preserve adjacent teeth because they help prevent the shifting or drifting of adjacent teeth when there is a gap left by missing teeth in the archway. 
  • Oral hygiene is easier to maintain with dental implants compared to other replacement options such as bridges and dentures.
