Dental Implants Are the Best Solution for Missing Teeth

Posted by Armitage Dental on Jul 25 2023, 12:06 PM

Are you tired of hiding your smile because of missing teeth? Do you long for a solution that not only looks natural but also feels like your own teeth? Look no further than dental implants! These remarkable tooth replacements have revolutionized the field of dentistry, offering a permanent and effective solution to replace one or more missing teeth. Say goodbye to self-consciousness and hello to a confident, radiant smile.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone. These tiny wonders act as sturdy anchors for replacement teeth or bridges. They provide a permanent solution to missing teeth. Unlike dentures or bridges that may need to be replaced over time, dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance.

How Are Dental Implants Placed?

First, your dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth to determine if you're a good candidate for dental implants. This includes evaluating the quality and density of your jawbone. If you have sufficient bone mass, the next step is to surgically place titanium posts into your jawbone. These posts act as artificial tooth roots and provide a stable foundation for the replacement teeth. After the implant placement surgery, there is a healing period called osseointegration. During this time, the surrounding bone fuses with the implant, ensuring its stability and durability. Once osseointegration is complete, abutments are attached to the implant posts. These abutments serve as connectors between the implants and replacement teeth or dentures.

Custom-made crowns or dentures are securely attached to these abutments. Your dentist will ensure that they fit perfectly and blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. Placing dental implants requires expertise and precision from both your dentist and oral surgeon. The process may take several months, but it's well worth it for long-lasting results that look and feel like real teeth!

Advantages of Dental Implants Over Other Tooth Replacement Options

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, there are several options available. However, dental implants stand out as the best solution for many reasons.

  • Dental implants offer a permanent and natural-looking solution. Unlike dentures or bridges, which need to be replaced or adjusted over time, dental implants are designed to last a lifetime with proper care. They blend seamlessly with your existing teeth and provide a strong foundation for crowns or bridges. 
  • Dental implants restore not only aesthetics but also functionality. Implants function just like natural teeth, allowing you to bite and chew with ease. This means you can enjoy all your favorite foods without any restrictions.
  • Another advantage of dental implants is that they prevent bone loss in the jaw area. When a tooth is lost, the underlying bone starts deteriorating over time. Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots that stimulate the jawbone and help maintain its strength.
  • Furthermore, unlike other tooth replacement options, such as dentures or bridges that require special cleaning routines and maintenance procedures, dental implants can be cared for just like natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and routine visits to your dentist will keep them healthy.

In addition to their functional benefits, dental implants also have psychological advantages. Having a complete set of teeth boosts self-confidence and improves the overall quality of life. With dental implant technology constantly advancing, the success rate for these procedures continues to rise.
