Dental implants are an investment in your smile. They are also an investment in your oral health. Their design is meant to last a lifetime, and they are also designed to look and feel just like your natural teeth. A dental implant is a post that is inserted surgically into the jawbone.
Do you have missing teeth? If so, you should consider dental implants.
Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements. They are specifically designed for the jawbone and fuse with your jawbone to create a sturdy foundation.
Unlike dentures, they are fixed in place, so they won't shift or slip.
Dental implants are an excellent option for people who have lost a tooth or need to have one extracted. However, there are certain requirements that must be met before implants can be considered.
First and foremost, you must be healthy enough for surgery. This means that your teeth and gums must be in good shape and have no signs of disease. You must also be free from disorders like osteoporosis that can interfere with the success of your procedure. Finally, you must have enough jawbone tissue to support the implant.
If you are missing a tooth, your dentist may recommend a bone graft to restore your jawbone tissue. This can help you qualify for dental implants in the future.
The implant is placed into your jawbone during an outpatient procedure. The dentist will drill a small hole in the bone and place the implant inside. After several months of healing, the implant is permanently fused to your jawbone.
When the implant is healed, the dentist will attach a small post to the implant. This post serves as the base for the crown. The crown covers the implant and is custom-made to match your smile.
Dental implants are the only permanent solution for missing teeth.
Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. They require the same care as natural teeth, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups.
Dental implants should be brushed and flossed just as you would your natural teeth. They should also be professionally cleaned at the dental office at least twice a year. Dental implants are extremely durable, but it's important to keep up with oral hygiene to prevent gum disease.
