What are dental implants?
Implants are man-made “anchors” that look like screws and replace your natural tooth roots. Dental implants consist mainly of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. They are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, there they become a stable base for one or more replacement teeth. Mini implants, which are smaller than regular dental implants can be used to stablize ta removable denture. When implants are properly placed, the surrounding bone rapidly fuses with them and become part of the patient’s jaw. Subsequently, fabricated teeth can be attached to them for a permanent fixed or removable type of tooth loss solution.
Over the years, our experience has shown that many patients have the following concerns about getting implants:
- Fear and anxiety of the implant process
- Uncertainty about the procedure or the long term effects of the implants
- Cost and financial issues
- Existing health concerns and their interaction with implant placement procedures
- Duration and longevity of the procedure
We will help you reduce your stress, anxiety and answer all of your implant questions throughout the entire process. Having all the right information up front before the procedure is critical to understanding the procedure and feeling more relaxed about the dental work. We are here to provide the answers to your implant questions.
Same Day Dental Implants:
Often times, it is possible to place the implant at the same time a tooth, or teeth is being removed. This method will not only reduce the number of treatment visits, but also reduce the amount of post-operative discomfort. If the appropriate number of implants is placed, patients are able to get their temporary implant supported restoration on the very same day. Please call our office for a complimentary consultation to see if you are a candidate for this procedure.
Advantages of Dental Implants:
- Dental implants help you chew better
- Dental implants help you fill out a face that could look “sunken” because of missing teeth
- Dental implants are the closest things to natural teeth.
For individuals missing one or just a few teeth:
Implants are the closest match for replacing missing teeth. Although fixed bridges are certainly an acceptable method in restoring missing teeth, their major draw back is that a couple or more teeth that are going to serve as anchors to support the bridge have to be reduced in order to make space for the bridge and allow the laboratory to put material in between teeth without interfering with a person’s bite. Additionally, if a person does not have at least two anchor teeth or the teeth are not strong enough, then a fixed bridge is not a viable option.
Whether a person is missing one, several or all of his or her teeth, implants can restore speech and function easily and effectively.
When a person loses a tooth, that individual’s body gradually shrinks the bone in that area. That would lead to shrinkage of the gum tissue. An implant, however stimulates the bone and prevents further shrinkage of the surrounding bone and gum.
For individuals missing many of their teeth but not all:
For individuals wearing or needing partial dentures, implants can increase the retention of their prosthesis or eliminate them all together. If a person feels that their false teeth are too bulky (they move when speaking or chewing), gets mouth sores because of their false teeth or that they would like to improve the looks of their smile, then implants are the answer. Often times, even one or two implants can transform an-ill fitting prosthesis into a secure and pleasant prosthesis.
For individuals missing or losing all of their teeth:
Full dentures used to be the only option available for these groups of people. However, dentures would often cause a myriad of problems such as:
- Dentures are loose, which usually require use of denture adhesives.
- Dentures are not retentive enough for chewing all kinds of food.
- Causing trouble with speech and communication.
- Too bulky.
- Being removable and not being fixated in the mouth like teeth.
- Cause sore spots.
But not anymore with implants. In most cases, a person can secure his or her lower full dentures with just two implants. Sometimes, even the existing denture can be retrofitted to snap onto the implants.
