What Is A Dental Implant?
Dentures and bridges used to be the only option for missing teeth. Although those options are still in use today, dental implants have become the method of choice and permanent solution for people who want completely natural-looking replacement teeth that are custom-fitted.
A dental implant takes the place of a missing tooth, restoring aesthetics and function. Implants can be used to replace all your teeth, several teeth, or one missing tooth.
What Is A Dental Implant Made Of?
An implant is a titanium post which is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of a missing tooth. The other components of an implant are the the crown and abutment. The abutment attaches to the implant, acting as a connector between the crown and the implant. The crown is the “tooth” and is porcelain.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
As you heal, a process called “osseointegration” is taking place. This is when the bone fuses together, or integrates, with the titanium implant. A solid integration is the foundation for your new tooth.
The missing tooth root is replaced with your implant. This is a huge benefit to implants over traditional dentures or bridges. Your jaw bone needs the root to remain healthy. The tooth root stimulates your bone to grow, which keeps the structure of your face youthful looking and strong.
If you’ve been in dentures or without teeth for a while, you may have noticed that the shape of your face has changed over time.
What Are Implant Dentures?
Full traditional dentures rely on adhesives to stay in place. They must be removed every day for maintenance and to give your gums a break. On the other hand, dental implant supported dentures are attached to implants. With a minimum of four implant posts, these posts will fuse with the surrounding bone; essentially replacing the teeth roots creating a durable foundation to anchor your denture for a
permanent restoration. Your dentist at Sleep Dentistry of Vancouver will determine if you are a candidate for this restorative procedure after your initial consultation.
The Benefits Of Dental Implants
If you need to replace your teeth, Sleep Dentistry of Vancouver can help! Dental implants are the next best thing to real teeth. There are many other benefits. Take a look!
The first thing someone notices is your smile and your eyes. Withholding a smile could give off a negative impression and less than perfect teeth are often unfairly judged also. You can change both of these with dental implants – no other tooth replacement option looks more like natural teeth.
If you’ve been without teeth for a while you may have noticed a change in the structure of your face. Is it a little sunken? Maybe you’ve noticed you have a weaker jawline? Due to lack of tooth roots, these can be some of the changes you’ll notice. A tooth root stimulates your bone encouraging healthy growth.
Dental implants restore facial structure, look natural and replace missing teeth roots. Getting the bone healthy again for a more youthful appearance.
The list of health benefits is long. Restoring the ability to chew is not least among them. If you’ve been suffering with painful teeth or no teeth at all, you are well aware of how limited your food selection has become. Your body needs the many beneficial nutrients found in chewy, crunchy, crisp foods. Digestion is extremely important also. Chewing your food properly also helps aid in good digestion.
Dental implants aren’t a procedure just done to your mouth – they’re a procedure for your whole body.
Smile big and laugh out loud without concern of unattractive teeth, showing a missing tooth, or a denture that slips out of place. No more passing on selfies, family photos or social engagements. You can finally stop hiding from behind your hand.
Have less than perfect teeth kept you from getting a date or promotion? When you don’t have to feel embarrassed about your smile, your confidence will soar.
With dental implants you will be noticed and remembered for your smile in the way that you want to be.
Dental implants are permanent and remain in your mouth. Caring for them is just like caring for natural teeth: floss, brush and /or use a waterpick.
Gone are the days of root canals and cavities.
You don’t have to worry about them slipping or sliding out of place at an inopportune moment.
No other tooth replacement option is more like real teeth than dental implants.
Are Dental Implants Safe?
Yes. When performed by an experienced, trained professional, dental implants are considered a safe and predictable dental procedure.
