Why Dental Implants?
We all feel that our teeth are important. But, when your smile begins to affect your quality of life, the health, function and appearance of your teeth takes on a whole new meaning Nobody needs to endure unhealthy or missing teeth, or the embarrassment of slipping dentures. Now, with dental implants, your dentist can restore your missing teeth without grinding down adjacent teeth (crown & bridge) or employee traditional dentures ( ridge supported and retained).
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants act as artificial roots, they are surgically placed into your jaw, and are the closest substitute to natural teeth in form and function. Once a dental implant is firmly integrated into your jaw, it can be used to support single crowns, bridges and dentures. Whether you are missing one tooth, several teeth or all of your teeth, dental implants may be an option for you.
What Is The Implant Procedure?
Based on your indications, dental implants are placed in one or two stages. In a Single-Stage procedure, the implant site is precisely prepared and the implant is inserted into the jawbone with the top of the implant extending through the gums. In a Two-Stage procedure, the implant site is precisely prepared and the implant is inserted into the jaw, and the implant is completely covered by the gums. Depending on your treatment plan and indications, implants can be restored immediately (Single-Stage) or after a pre-determined healing period (Two-Stage). The next phase includes impressions of your implant, soft tissue contouring, custom fabrication of the crown, and attachment of the crown to the implant.
How Do I Care For My Dental Implants?
Caring for dental implants is the same as caring for natural teeth. Simply follow the oral hygiene basics, which include brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups. Your dentist or your hygienist will show you how to keep your new teeth clean.
