What are Dental Implants?

Missing a tooth or teeth can happen to anyone, whether due to an accident, a cracked tooth, decay or other circumstance. Sadly, a missing tooth can not only interfere with your smile, but it can make eating difficult and uncomfortable.

And worse, without proper treatment the jawbone in the area of the missing tooth will deteriorate, leaving your face looking sallow or older than your age. Our team at Dental & Skin Clinic can create a beautiful, natural-looking dental implant that can restore your smile.

A dental implant can replace the tooth and save your jawbone. Implants are tiny, titanium posts that are planted into the jawbone to take the place of a natural tooth root.

Once your bone sets it into place, a beautifully designed ceramic crown will be placed on the implant, which will look and feel like your own tooth. You will be free to talk, chew, and smile with confidence.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

A missing tooth or teeth can be replaced with a dental bridge, implant(s), or in some cases, dentures. But dental implants are the only solution that will save your bone and face shape while offering the benefit of you having full function of your mouth without worrying about slippage of dentures or hassle of a bridge.

When a dental implant is placed into the jawbone, your body treats it as a natural tooth root and utilise your body’s natural healing abilities to secure and stabilise it.

This prevents jawbone deterioration, which helps you maintain a youthful facial structure. A summary of the benefits of dental implants include:

The Ideal Solution

Dental implants are the ideal solution to replace missing teeth. You can replace one tooth or a series of teeth, or use implants to hold dentures in place so they are more like your natural teeth. The following are some dental implant scenarios:

Alternative to a Bridge:

Sometimes when one tooth goes missing, a bridge is used to replace the missing tooth. When this happens, the teeth around the missing tooth will be reconstructed to fit the bridge in place and anchor it.

This means those teeth will be permanently altered, which may eventually lead to deterioration or be difficult to take care of. But a dental implant not only allows you to replace the tooth with a crown, but it also replaces the tooth root, causing your body to add to and solidify the bone around it.

All-on-4

Is a dental solution to help replace 6 or more missing teeth in a row. In this case, four implants will be strategically placed in your mouth and allowed to heal.

This solution gives the dentist the option to place the implants on the strongest part of the bone, or at different angles to overcome deficiencies and lessen discomfort. Once they are healed, a row of prosthetics will be put in place that will function and look like your natural teeth.

Alternative to Dentures

With dental implants is a dental option for some clients. Instead of wearing dentures that irritate gums and slip around, causing embarrassment and discomfort, dental implants can be placed that allow prosthetics to be snapped on. This solution gives confidence and comfort as the client can live without worry.

Can Anyone Get Dental Implants?

While we strive to please everyone, there may be some cases where a client is not a candidate for dental implants. For example, if the gums are very worn or if gum disease is present. The following situations may be a reason to delay or forgo implants:
\
Smokers
\
Poor oral hygiene
\
Excessive bone loss or deformity of the jawbone
\
Gingivitis or periodontitis infection of the gums

In many cases, we can correct dental issues and then move forward with dental implants. For example, if gum disease is present, we can help correct and heal it. If there is excessive plaque or tartar, we will perform a professional dental cleaning and scraping to remove it.

In some cases of bone loss, a bone graft may be an option. A thorough dental exam will help us determine your situation and find the best solution for your needs and desires.
