If you are looking into effective dental implants and need more information about what implants actually entail, then you’re in the right place.
Dental implants are used to permanently replace one or more teeth. They are made of small titanium screws, which is a metal accepted by the body and has the ability to fully integrate into the jawbone. Atop the titanium screw, there is another small abutment. An abutment acts as point of contact between two parts or objects. In the case of a dental implant, it acts as a contact point between the screw and the crown. Dental implants replace the root of a missing tooth and over time, the bone will grown into the surface of the titanium screw.
Implants can be the solution you’ve been looking for to fully correct and beautify your smile. Maybe you lost a tooth in childhood, had a dental emergency or even a sporting injury. Tooth loss can occur due to a number of other factors.
Some of these factors include:
Dental implants can replace a single tooth, several teeth or even replace all of the teeth in your mouth for the perfect, worry free smile. They also offer a number of advantages like improved speech, comfort, appearance and general oral health. Your dental implants will look and feel like natural teeth. They can contribute to general oral health as they have the ability to preserve your natural tooth tissue and unlike conventional implants, will not affect healthy neighbouring teeth.
For instance, if you receive any sort of conventional bridges, this could require: the grinding down of adjacent teeth, the use of metal clasps or the use of retainers.
Dental implants are the optimal solution for anyone missing any number of teeth. They can be both functional and aesthetically pleasing as they look and feel like natural teeth. Implants will help you maintain your facial structure and the screw will eventually completely integrate into the bone tissue. Implants can last a lifetime with proper oral care and regular dental checkups and they allow dentists to keep all healthy adjacent teeth without grinding them down or using clasps/retainers.
The process of receiving a dental implant may be a little lengthy but well worth it. It requires a few steps and consultations to ensure you are given the best treatment. You might even have the option of getting a mini implant. These are usually a quick and easy one-appointment procedure.
