Options for Dental Implants
Implant supported dentures are another use for these permanent replacement roots. Dentures that are supported by implants will be held fast in place. This allows patients to benefit from the stability offered by implants, without the higher price tag associated with a mouth full of implants.
What are Dental Implants?
Once implanted into the healthy jawbone tissue, the tissue will grow and fuse to the titanium post. A very small abutment that is attached to the top of the titanium post will serve as a means of securing the prosthetic tooth once the jawbone has been allowed to heal. The healing process can take up to several months. During this time your jawbone will be continually fusing to the titanium post.
Are Implants a safe solution to missing teeth?
What happens during the dental implant procedure?
After the titanium implant has been allowed time to fuse to the jawbone, it’ll be time to create the crown or the bridge. Once they have been milled, the prosthetics will be bonded in place.
Am I a good candidate for dental implants?
Bone regression occurs when there is no longer a tooth and tooth root system for the jawbone tissue to grow around. The bone regresses away from the gum line, and can lead to a number of other concerns. Bone loss can often be resolved with a bone graft. This will allow for sufficient bone tissue growth for the implant to be fused to.
The best way to determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants is to have a discussion about your smile goals with your periodontist.
What are some of the alternatives to dental implants?
Patients who have a larger number of missing teeth may find that partial or full dentures are another consideration. Quite often the price of dental implants will dictate for some patients the type of treatments that they invest in.
