What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are one of the best, if not the best, option for those who need to undergo a long-term tooth replacement procedure. Dental implants can last for quite a long time. Several factors must be considered to determine how long a specific dental implant will last, such as dental hygiene and follow up care, and patient lifestyle, medical history, and anatomy.
In the last 4+ decades, advancements in modern dental implants have helped millions of people live happy, healthy, pain-free lives with normal function and smiles.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Advanced dental implants can help our patients regain the confidence of having natural looking, perfect teeth. One of the most important benefits of using dental implants is their ability to maintain bone strength, structure, and oral functions. For example, those with a damaged set of teeth can find chewing food naturally to be complicated. Dental implants can completely circumvent that problem with the use of artificial replacement teeth that offer the same level of comfort as a natural set of teeth.
The permanent loss of a tooth can have adverse long-term effects on the patient that should be prevented as soon as possible. Did you know that the roots of a tooth not only keep teeth in place but are also essential in supporting overall bone structure and maintaining the health of the gums? Loss of a tooth, or several, can be akin to having your oral health defenses at risk.
The jaw will experience bone loss at a slow yet steady pace if left unchecked. The bone loss can then lead to more rows of teeth experiencing instability and imbalance. This contributes to cases in which some patients who use dentures feel as if their dentures are getting harder to wear correctly. They feel the dentures get looser with time. With our dental implant procedures, such problems can be prevented before they become the cause of significant discomfort and dental issues.
Dental implants heal to the jawbone by a process called osseointegration. Osseointegration is the process in which the dental implant helps stimulate physical bone growth within the surrounding area where it was placed. This helps to prevent the "sunken" appearance around the area where the tooth loss occurred.
