Dental Implants are a relatively new dental technology and have only been around for the last couple of decades. Dental Implants are technically dental parts that replace teeth. They are usually worn directly over one tooth, but they can be worn over multiple teeth in cases of multiple dentures. Dental Implants are the result of dentures and bridges being ‘reinflated’ with dental implants which are ‘sealed’ in place using a filled syringe. Dental Implants are now used to bridge gaps in teeth where traditional dentures would normally be fitted, including those where there are space restrictions (as in where teeth are fronted in front of a space).
What are Dental Implants? DescriptionAn dental implant is essentially a single tooth or a group of teeth which are functionally united with a single implant rod. They are attached directly to the bone or gum by a hollow or ‘sealed’ syringe. They are made from a variety of materials, but in general they are made from metal, ceramic or titanium. They are also used to support dental bridges, dentures, crowns, appliances, dentures or straighteners.
How are Dental Implants placed? Typically, if you have one or more missing teeth, you will opt for single Dental Implants. However, if you also have a number of loose, movable, non-aligned teeth, you may want to opt for two Dental Implants, placed one after the other. This gives the impression of a more natural look and better alignment of your teeth.
Who benefits from Dental Implants? It is well known that Dental Implants are extremely beneficial to patients suffering from periodontal disease. Patients suffering from periodontal disease have weak gums, bone loss and restricted air flow through their mouth. When these issues are corrected through dental implants, patients experience a significant improvement in their oral health. Furthermore, as dental implants restore the natural positioning of your teeth, they prevent other teeth from becoming misaligned. This leads to better overall oral health.
So, what are the specific needs when considering Dental Implants? To ensure the success of this specific surgery, it is important to select a cosmetic dentist who is experienced in the procedure. In addition, you need to be certain that the doctor you choose is certified by the American Dental Association (ADA). Your periodontist will help you with your particular needs and may refer you to a number of specialists including a specialist oral surgeon, periodontists, orthodontists, oral surgeons and others. Before the surgery is performed, your periodontist and other specialists will go over your specific needs and the specific surgical plan that will be performed.
Dental Implants offer a permanent solution to many common problems associated with missing or broken teeth. In addition to correcting broken and crooked teeth, the procedure is also used to repair teeth that have been worn down due to extensive smoking or gum disease. Through the use of titanium dental implants, the entire body can be restored to its natural appearance. Dental Implants are an effective solution for anyone who desires a beautiful, healthy smile.
