Even though, dental care has immensely improved, many people suffer from tooth loss – mostly due to tooth decay, periodontal disease or injury. In the past, the only treatment option available for replacing teeth were loose dentures and bridges. Today, dental implants provide a much better alternative.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically implemented into the jaw bone beneath your gums. Once in place, a replacement teeth can be mounted onto them by your dentist.
How does a dental implant work?
Dental implants fuse into your jawbone. Thus, they provide a permanent support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges can then be mounted to implants and won’t shift in your mouth. That is especially important when eating and speaking as everything feels more natural than conventional dentures and bridges.
In order to receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and appropriate bone to support the implant (if you don’t have enough support, a sinus lift & bone graft is required before dental implants can be implemented). Furthermore, it is important is a full commitment to keeping the structures healthy. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.
