Bristol Park Dental – Dental Implants
A beautiful smile can positively impact your social, professional, mental, and emotional well-being. Your smile is what people notice first. Everyone knows that flashing a great smile is a huge asset and should not be underestimated.
So what do you do if you have missing teeth? Gum disease, accidents, and injuries that once would have left someone with missing teeth can now look brand new with dental implant treatment.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the only form of tooth restoration that replaces the tooth from root to crown. With the help of local anesthesia, an artificial titanium tooth root is inserted through the gum tissue and screwed into the jawbone. The titanium post then bonds with the surrounding bone. Once the base is securely fused to the jaw, it’s topped off with an artificial tooth that perfectly matches your natural teeth.
Implants are used for single tooth replacement, fixed multiple teeth replacement, and even a new arch with removable implant-supported dentures. So regardless of how many teeth need replacing, everyone has options.
To be considered a candidate for dental implants, you need to have the following:
- – A good level of oral health
- – No sign of periodontal disease
- – Healthy and strong bone in the jaw to support the implant
- – Good health overall and not be suffering from any conditions which might prevent you from having surgery
- – A non-smoker
- – A fully developed jaw
Are Implants Better than False Teeth?
Removable dentures have been the only solution for missing teeth for centuries. Besides the uncomfortable adhesives, they usually make talking and eating awkward and difficult.
Chewing food with our natural teeth stimulates the jaw bone keeping it solid. Dentures provide no stimulation to the bone, resulting in bone loss in the jaw. With tooth loss comes bone loss and ill-fitting dentures that can slip and fall out easily.
Implant posts are integrated into the jawbone and become a part of you. They function the same way as the natural teeth roots (click here for more info), significantly reducing bone loss.
Dental implants won’t embarrass you by slipping and sliding while you’re trying to chew your food or are engaging in a conversation. Dental implants feel like your own teeth! Dental implants have incredible success rates and are the gold standard for replacing teeth.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
- – They don’t need support from other teeth
- – Help prevent bone loss
- – They last long term if cared for properly
- – Look, feel, and act like natural teeth
- – Comfortable and natural-looking
- – Easy to clean
