For many people, dental implants are an excellent solution to restore optimum oral health. Implants can also be used to support a dental prosthetic, such as a bridge or denture, as well. In fact, they are our favourite solution to restore multiple missing teeth.
Many patients do not realise that missing teeth may impact confidence and overall health. Although there is no pain, having missing teeth means the jawbone has no root to support. It can begin to resorb, or dissolve, which changes the facial appearance, especially the profile, and reduces support for remaining teeth.
Healthy teeth will also begin to move into the spaces left by missing teeth. This can cause bite misalignment, putting the remaining teeth at an increased risk for fracture or wear.
A dental implant is a long-lasting and durable option for replacing one or more missing teeth. Some patients may not be able to have dental implants due to bone loss or other factors. To be successful, implants should be placed once growth has ceased. This is typically around the age of 18 for females and 21 for males.
The dental implant itself is a small replacement tooth root made from strong titanium, capped with a dental crown or prosthetic following healing.
A full smile may also contribute to a healthier diet as it is easier to diversify and add crunchier foods to your personal menu.
A dentist places a titanium post directly into the jawbone during surgery, ensuring the treatment area is thoroughly numb beforehand. Titanium is biocompatible and will grow with your bone naturally over a healing period of 3 to 4 months. The post creates a firm foundation for a new tooth while the implant at finish replaces both the missing root and tooth.
Dental implants restore the ability to chew, smile and talk with confidence again. A dental implant also allows patients to brush and floss easily, making daily care convenient.
