A dental implant is one of the most modern and effective methods for replacing missing teeth. There are two parts to a dental implant procedure: the dental implant and the restoration.
A dental implant is a tiny post that functions as an artificial tooth root. A periodontist or oral surgeon performs a minor surgical procedure to insert your implant directly into your jawbone, where you’re missing a tooth. Implants are high-quality biocompatible materials that your bone tissue can fuse with, so your implant becomes a sturdy foundation in your jawbone.
After your implant properly fuses, your dentist fits it with a restoration, like a crown, bridge, or denture. One of the biggest benefits of dental implants is that you don’t necessarily need an implant for every tooth you need to replace. You can replace an entire dental arch with as few as four dental implants.
Dental implant restorations are great for patients who want to replace missing teeth. In order for the implant to function successfully, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone tissue to support the implant.
If you’re interested in getting dental implants, Dr. Callicutt and Dr. Dayries at Aesthetic & Integrative Dentistry perform a thorough exam to assess your suitability.
If you have gum disease that you need to treat or require more bone tissue for your implant, they can set you up with periodontal treatments or a bone graft so that you can move forward with your implants.
There are plenty of benefits to replacing your missing teeth with dental implant restorations. Dental implant restorations look incredibly natural and feel particularly comfortable. Because they’re connected directly to your jawbone, they are more secure than a set of traditional dentures.
One of the more notable benefits of dental implant restorations is that they provide your jawbone with healthy stimulation. Patients who have replaced missing teeth with traditional dentures or a bridge frequently experience bone loss in their jaw, because their replacement tooth sits on top of their gums and doesn’t properly stimulate their jawbone.
This bone loss can noticeably change the shape of your face and affect your appearance. Dental implant restorations, on the other hand, do stimulate your jaw bone, keeping it healthy and strong and preserving your appearance.
