Implants can be used to replace dentures, bridges or missing individual teeth. Also, implants can be used to stabilize or replace teeth loosened by periodontal disease or accidents. They can even be used as anchors to help move and straighten other teeth with orthodontics. As you can see, dental implants are quite versatile and helpful in many treatment conditions.
What are the benefits of dental Implants?
The most obvious benefit is an increased ability to chew and function with implant-supported teeth. In fact, it has been shown that while people with dentures can only chew food with about 20% of the force of their natural teeth, people with implants can chew with 85% to 95% of the force of their natural teeth. But there can be many other benefits.
One common problem that denture wearers face is the lack of stability of dentures, particularly lower dentures, as they are balanced on the jawbone between the muscles of the cheek, lips and tongue. The insecurity resulting from loose dentures can be eliminated by using implants to “anchor” dentures or by making implant-supported teeth. For some people it is the discomfort or bulkiness of removable dental appliances that is the major concern. Implants can eliminate these problems also. The loss of teeth and the supporting bone can cause significant changes in facial features.
Dental Implants look and feel like natural teeth
Anyone with dentures knows how important the teeth, gums and jawbone are as support for the lips, cheeks and lower face. Loss of these important structures gives an appearance of premature aging and for many people causes emotional distress and a loss of self-esteem. Implant-supported teeth and dentures can slow down this aging process and help improve self esteem and the often-felt loss of intimacy. So, while functional benefits are the most obvious, cosmetic and emotional benefits are for many people as important as, or more important than, improved chewing.
How successful are Implants?
While there are risks and concerns with any dental procedure, results of implant treatment are quite predictable today. Each patient must be evaluated individually by a dentist with experience in implantology. The discipline of implantology is demanding, but extremely rewarding. I have elected to concentrate my practice on implantology because of the tremendous gratification of seeing so many of my patients so pleased with their implants. Implants are here to stay and will continue to improve the quality of life and help restore the oral health of millions of people.
Dental Implants placing process
Implants are surgically placed into the jawbone in approximately the same places where the natural teeth once were.
|The dentist placing the implant creates a hole into the jawbone that will accept the implant. The hole approximates the shape of the previous tooth and the new artificial implant to be placed.|
|The implant is then inserted into the hole and the gum tissue is closed over the implant to heal. The implant must heal from three to seven months depending on the situation.|
|The bone and gums mature around the implant, and the implant becomes securely fastened to the bone. This healing process is called osseointegration.|
|After the bone has healed, the dentist removes a small portion of the gum tissue covering over the implant and the implant is exposed. The artificial tooth or reconstruction is then attached to the implant.|
