For those patients dealing with severe tooth decay or the loss of one or more teeth, finding a solution that doesn’t involve denture adhesive and having to constantly refit dentures is important.
Many people do not feel comfortable wearing dentures or cannot manage to get a proper fit, despite having them fitted by a dentist. Implants are a surgical option that can restore teeth and eliminate the need for dentures or denture adhesives.
Dental Implants are a permanent solution for tooth loss. They can be used to replace one tooth, several teeth, or all of the teeth in your mouth.
The dental implant system includes an artificial tooth root made from metal and a titanium post that is placed into the jawbone near where the missing tooth would have been located.
Implants are not just for people who have lost their teeth due to injury or disease, but also as part of dentures treatment to secure them in place with implants rather than relying on what has become known as “the denture adhesive”.
The implant is a small cylinder that is inserted into the socket of an extracted tooth. The bone around it will grow and fuse to form a bond with the artificial root, making it as strong or stronger than your natural tooth roots.
A dental laboratory will make you an individual set for implants from models made by your dentist in order to create teeth that look just like your natural ones.
The implants are surgically anchored into your mouth and become as close to real teeth as possible, even restoring the ability to eat properly.
Implants are permanent but can be removed if there’s no longer any need for them or if they become troublesome – this may happen after healing has taken place over time on gum tissue which has been soothed and not irritated by denture adhesives applied elsewhere in the mouth due to missing teeth.
The implants will be replaced with new ones if there is a need to do so.
With dental implants, it’s easier for your dentist to make dentures that fit well and stay in place better than they could otherwise – or not at all without them.
Dental Implants are an excellent option for people who have lost one or more of their natural teeth due to decay, wear-and-tear, periodontal disease (gum disease), or other circumstances but want a replacement tooth instead of dentures. They also provide much greater chewing ability which can’t be achieved any other way.
If you are looking for a solution other than dentures for your missing teeth, then consider consulting your dentist about implants.
