Dental Implants

A dental implant is a medical piece that interfaces with the skull or jaw bone to hold up a dental prosthesis like a bridge, crown, denture, or to act as an orthodontic supporting anchor. Implants have become the treatment of choice to replace missing or lost teeth, and when done properly, the success rates have exceeded 95%. Dental implants were originally designed to deal with one of dentistry’s biggest problems, the lower removable complete denture, and they provide a very predictable and satisfying solution.

For some, ordinary dentures are simply not possible or comfortable, owing to sore spots, gagging or poor ridges. Plus, when replacing a single tooth, ordinary bridges need to be attached to teeth on both sides of the gap left by the lost or missing tooth. A benefit of dental implants is that no adjoining teeth need to be ground down or prepared to clasp your new replacement teeth/tooth in place.

In order to receive implants, you need to have healthy gums along with sufficient bone to back the implant. You should also be prepared to follow a comprehensive maintenance routine to ensure the longevity of your dental implants. If left untreated, peri-implant disease (gum disease around implants) can result in gum infection, soreness, bleeding and general discomfort.

Implants are a well-established, safe, and a long-term treatment. Due to the fusing process of the artificial root to the jaw bone, the final results offer a predictable and strong outcome that can last for many, many years, provided that you take proper care of it. If you are faced with issues, and are looking for a long-term solution, then dental implants might be an option worth taking into account. In order to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants, get in touch with us today and we will determine precisely how you will be able to benefit from the procedure.

Implants are a smart, long-term solution for the right candidate.
