Dental implants as permanent solutions for missing teeth

A dental implant is the standard for care during prosthetic replacement of a missing tooth. This surgical fixture is put into the jawbone and allowed to fuse with the bone over a few months. The implant behaves as the root for a missing tooth. Previously, the only other options for those who lost teeth were dentures and briedges.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

It feels exactly the same as a regular tooth, thereby elevating a person’s self esteem

People who would otherwise feel shy while smiling can do so easily after an implant

Eating and speaking become easier after an implant

Implants are also helpful for oral health since they do not have to be anchored to teeth, as compared to bridges.

The average success rate of a dental implant is very high

Health can be improved through implants. The procedure is not just cosmetic, but it can increase life by 10 years, the major reason being that teeth are directly linked to diet.

What is required for a healthy dental implant?

If you are considering dental implants, it is vital to have healthy gums and a strong bone structure to support them. In case the bone is too thin, a bone graft may be required to support the implant.

You can predict them

Dental implants have very few requirements, making them highly predictable. People come back to tell our dentists that they are often surprised by the lack of sensitivity experienced after fitting them.

Are implants safe?

Implants are a well known form of treatment which is considered safe. Similar to regular teeth, they will continue to last as long as you care for them. Make sure you do not miss your regular dental appointments. If you do not look after them, they are likely to develop a coating, similar to the one on natural teeth.

Care tips to follow after dental implants

Visit the dentist:- Examinations and cleaning of teeth after every 6 months will ensure that implants remain healthy

Maintain oral hygiene:- Brush two times a day and floss at least once. Buy interdental brushes from our dentists to reach hard parts between the implants.

Stop smoking:- Nicotine tends to destroy the bone structure and make the implants weak

Try not to chew hard foods:- Hard items like hard candy and ice can damage the crown and the implants

Making the decision to get a dental implant fitted is a major discussion that needs to be undertaken with our dentist. To ensure proper placement of the plant, the dental specialist will first take an x-ray, understand your health history and also examine the mouth before giving the final go-ahead. Tooth replacement options will be carefully considered by our dentist.
