What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a permanent false tooth that is inserted into your jaw to complete your smile and help you perform everyday tasks more efficiently. It consists of a titanium screw and a custom crown. Dental implants look totally natural and give patients a secure way to restore their smile. They give patients the benefit of a complete smile and never need to be taken out or replaced like some other restorative options.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
There are several practical and cosmetic benefits of getting dental implants.
• Improved chewing and speaking ability
• Improved appearance
Are they better than other restorative options?
Dental implants are preferred by most patients and dentists due to the fact that they are extremely durable and very convenient. Other options, such as dentures, need to be removed every night and they sometimes fit awkwardly in the mouth. Other options, such as retainers with false teeth, need to be removed for eating and drinking and can be quite a hassle for some patients. Dental implants are inserted once and then fuse to your jaw overtime, virtually becoming part of your facial structure.
Am I a good candidate for dental implants?
Dental implants are great for almost every smile. However, there are some patients that may benefit from other restorative options depending on a few different factors.
Who may not be eligible:
• Patients with diabetes or chronic illness
• Patients who have a history of poor oral hygiene
• Anyone who has had/is having radiation treatment in the head or neck area.
