A Patient's Guide to Dental Implants

For anyone missing one or more teeth, dental implants can be something of a miracle. Dental implants carry several clear advantages over traditional tooth replacement options such as dentures, such as the ability to stop bone loss in the jaw and the restoration of normal tooth appearance and function. You should talk to your dentist about dental implants if you are interested in replacing missing teeth, but here are a few things to know for now. 

Dental Implant construction

Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement solution. Except in very rare circumstances, dental implants should be seen as a completely permanent procedure. They serve as an artificial root, usually made of titanium, that are surgically inserted into the jaw. For the replacement of one tooth, a crown is attached atop a single implant; for multiple missing teeth, a bridge may be adhered to two or more implants across the jaw.

Dental implants can significantly improve your quality of life. Since dental implants are permanent, they can completely restore functionality in your teeth. They allow you to eat virtually any food you were able to eat prior to tooth loss, unlike dentures which can limit your food options. Additionally, implants require no special hygiene steps; simply brush and floss your teeth as usual.

Dental implants can restore your self-image. Talk to your dentist about how you might look after a dental implant procedure. Dental implants look completely natural. It is virtually impossible to tell the difference between an implant and a natural tooth by simply looking. You will be able to smile with confidence, knowing that your smile is just as stunning, if not more so, as it was before you suffered the loss of the tooth or teeth.
