What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants have been called one of the greatest advances in dentistry in decades. They’re sort of the “holy grail” of tooth replacement options because dental implants are the closest you can get to brand new teeth.
A dental implant is a small post made of titanium, a biocompatible metal that has been used for everything from hip replacements to pacemakers. That post acts as a replacement for the root of the missing tooth. When you get a dental implant placed, we insert it into the gum so it makes contact with your jawbone.
In time, this post adheres to the jawbone — just as a real tooth root would. This is what makes dental implants so strong.
We affix a custom abutment to the dental implant, which will hold your replacement tooth in place. Finally, we top it all off with a ceramic dental crown or other dental restoration. Your replacement will be color-matched to your surrounding teeth for a flawless and natural look.
What Are The Advantages Of Dental Implants?
In addition to being the most durable teeth replacement solution available, dental implants are a long-lasting investment in your oral health.
With dental implants, you’ll experience improved dental function. Chewing can be challenging or even painful if you’re missing teeth. By simply filling in those gaps with dental implants, you’ll revive up to 90 percent of the chewing power you once had! Speaking and smiling will also become easier with dental implants. No more skipping out on dinner parties and other social functions because you’re too embarrassed about your smile!
Dental implants also engage the jawbone when you chew, which will help you maintain a healthy jaw. Folks who opt for dentures as a teeth replacement option sometimes experience bone loss in the jaw. That’s because when you’re chewing with dentures, the biting force transfers to the gums — not the jawbone, as with natural teeth or dental implants — which can result in deterioration of the jawbone and a “sunken” appearance to the face.
Plus, dental implants are convenient. You care for them as you would for real teeth: with regular brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings. When you care for dental implants properly, they can last a lifetime!
What If I Need To Replace Multiple Teeth?
Through dental implants are a great option for replacing a single tooth, they can also help you if you need to replace several or even all of your teeth.
The implant itself can be affixed to a number of different dental restorations depending on your needs. A dental crown replaces the visible portion of a single tooth, but an implant can also be attached to a bridge, which replaces several teeth in a row, or a full dental arch prosthesis.
If you’re looking to replace an entire upper or lower set of teeth, a full dental arch prosthesis anchored to dental implants is a great alternative to traditional dentures.
Traditional dentures have a reputation for being ill-fitting and requiring unpleasant adhesives that aren’t always reliable. By attaching your full-arch prosthesis to dental implants, you can feel comfortable knowing your teeth are secure. Plus, you’ll be able to eat whatever foods you like!
At Crowns Now, we can attach an entire arch of replacement teeth to as few as four dental implants using the innovative All-On-4™ dental implants procedure!
