Know more on dental implants -
Dental implants replace natural missing teeth. Dental implants are posts surgically placed into the upper or lower jawbone. They replace one or more teeth that are next to each other. Implants are an effective way to replace missing natural teeth. When teeth are lost because of disease or an accident, dental implants may be a good option.
You may want to choose dental implants if:
• You hide your smile because you have missing teeth
• Your dentures are not comfortable
• You are not happy with your removable partial dentures
• You do not have or do not want your other teeth to anchor a bridge restoration
People may choose implants to replace a single tooth, more than one tooth, or to support a full set of dentures.
Missing Tooth replaced by dental implant
After a bridge
Single Tooth Implants - A single tooth implant replaces the missing tooth's roots. It is a stand-alone unit and does not involve treating the teeth next to it. If you are missing one or more teeth, there are many reasons why you should replace them:
• You may not like how the gap looks when you smile.
• Missing teeth may affect how you speak.
• A missing back tooth (molar) can make it harder to chew.
• When a tooth is lost and not replaced, the teeth around it can shift. Shifting teeth can affect how you bite and chew.
• Bone loss may occur in the area around the missing tooth or teeth. This may cause the remaining teeth to become loose over time.
• Loss of teeth and bone can make your face sag. You may look older.
Implant-Supported Bridges and Implant-Supported Dentures
An implant-supported bridge replaces the lost natural teeth and some of the tooth roots when more than one tooth is missing. Unlike traditional bridges, an implant-supported bridge does not need support from the teeth next to it.
If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported denture can replace the missing teeth and some of the tooth roots. Because the bone in your jaw actually grows around the implants, an implant-supported denture tends to be comfortable and stable. This allows you to bite and chew naturally.
Benefits of Dental Implants
• Implants won't slip or shift in your mouth. This is very important for eating and speaking normally.
• Implants feel more natural than removable partial or conventional complete dentures because of their secure fit.
• A single tooth implant is a stand-alone unit and doesn't involve treating the teeth next to it.
• Implants help to preserve the bone after teeth are lost or removed.
• Implants are a good value. They may seem like a more expensive option at first, but they can last a lifetime if you take good care of them.
