Replace Your Missing Teeth With Dental Implants
There are many options for replacing your missing or failing teeth. The best solution for your comfort and long term dental health is implant dentistry. Unlike dentures or other old fashioned dental restorations, dental implants permanently restore the full function of your teeth and guard against bone loss.
Dental implants are metal posts or frames that dentists position into the jawbone just under your gums through a surgical procedure. Once placed, dentists can then mouth either a new bridge or replacement tooth/teeth in that same area.
Unlike dentures, implants are firmly placed in your mouth, so they won't ever come loose. Or at least, not by accident. They also have the added benefit of not needing to be anchored to the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth, which is a requirement for bridges.
How Dental Implants Work
Implants basically fuse to your jawbone, allowing them to provide the most stable possible kind of support for your replacement teeth. They won't slip or shift, making them less likely to cause speech problems. Also, as a result of their secure fit, dental implants feel far more natural compared to dental bridges and/or dentures.
Proper Care and Maintenance
To receive dental implants, your overall oral health has to be checked and assessed by a dentist first. You'll need to have healthy enough gums, with sufficient bone structure left to support the implant itself. Also, having dental implants means that you'll have to commit to taking proper care of it, which includes meticulous oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist.
