What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are restorations that are used to help in replacing missing teeth. When teeth are missing from damage or periodontal disease, it can compromise the smile. Not only does it impact the aesthetic appearance of your smile, but it can affect your ability to eat properly and speak clearly. Dental implants are titanium rods that are used to replace the dental roots of a once natural tooth that was in place within the smile. The implant itself is restored in various ways, with crowns, bridges, or dentures, to replace one or more teeth within the smile. Determining if dental implants are right for you requires a thorough evaluation with the team at Allen Dental Studio.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
The best candidate for the placement of one or more implants is a patient who:
- Does not have active periodontal disease
- Has a smile without cavities, or cavities that have been treated prior
- Has sufficient jawbone for the successful placement of the dental implant
- Is committed to ensuring proper oral health over time
- Is seeking a tooth replacement option that is strong, sturdy, and fully-functional
- Wants to stabilize full dentures with dental implants to eliminate messy denture adhesives
- Is considering a wise investment into their oral health and wellness
- Wants a restoration that will maintain the jawbone over the years
What can I expect from the placement and restoration of dental implants?
Dental implantation is a process. It does not happen in one day. First, patients schedule their consultation appointment to determine candidacy. Once they have decided to use dental implants in their smile, they schedule their oral surgery. On this day, the dentist places the implant into the jawbone. Several weeks are needed to wait for the process of osseointegration to occur. This is the process during which the bone of the jaw wraps around the implant. The implant is then ready to restore with a dental crown, dental bridges, or a denture, depending on the patient’s needs. Patients can expect their implants to last a lifetime with proper care.
