What Are Dental Implants and Why Should I Consider Using Them?

Dental implants are intended to replace one or multiple teeth. Think of them as titanium posts that mimic tooth roots. Dental implants can be used when replacing a single tooth in the mouth, or multiple implants can be used to replace multiple teeth. Dental implants can even be used to anchor bridges or dentures.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

A dental implant is a titanium post shaped like a small screw. The implant dentist will place the implant into the bone under your gums. The bone will grow around the dental implant, holding it steady like it would a natural tooth. After it has healed, the dentist will cap the tooth with a crown that looks just like a natural tooth. Or, the dental implant can be used to anchor a bridge or denture in place.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

There are many benefits to getting a dental implant. Unlike dental bridges or dentures, which need to be replaced every few years, dental implants often last a lifetime. Dental implants also:

  • prevent bone loss, which helps keep the face from sagging and looking hollow
  • function just like a natural tooth
  • allow you to eat steak and other favorite foods
  • allow you to speak normally
  • never get cavities or need a root canal

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implant-Supported Dentures?

Dental implants can also be used to anchor a denture. As anyone who wears a traditional denture knows, one of the biggest challenges is learning how to keep it from slipping. Implant-supported dentures eliminate that problem. The implants keep the denture attached securely to the gums.

Implant-supported dentures tend to be made for the lower jaw because regular dentures tend to be less stable there. However, they can also be made for the upper jaw. The denture may be secured by as few as two dental implants. Depending on the technique used, the denture may snap on to the dental implants. In this case, you would still remove the denture each night to clean it.

What Are the Results from Getting Dental Implants and How Do I Maintain Them?

Since they were first developed in the 1980s, implants have proven to be one of the most effective tooth replacement systems in the field of dentistry. When taking care of implants, it is always important to practice exemplary oral hygiene. In much the same way that the patient takes care of their natural teeth, implants require the same amount of effort to keep them, and surrounding gum tissues, clean. Regular dental visit are helpful to ensure the health and functionality of the dental implants. The patient will also be advised to avoid habits such as chewing on hard items that can break the crown on the implant, and staying away from products such as tobacco or caffeine that may stain the restoration. If the patient has an underlying condition of teeth grinding, it is recommended that he or she get treatment for that as well.
