Discovering New Ways of Scientific Thinking
General preparation information
A dental implant is a small "anchor" made of titanium. It is inserted into the jawbone to take the place of your missing tooth root. After Osseointegration, or when the surrounding bone has attached to the implant, a replacement tooth is secured to the top of the implant. The new tooth looks, feels, and performs just like your natural teeth.
Dental implants can be used in a variety of situations, whether you need to replace a single missing tooth or many teeth. They can even be used to replace a full denture. As anchor points, implants can also securely attach a partial denture or bridge.
Choosing implants offers you a number of significant advantages including:
1.More healthy and beautiful: When teeth are missing, the surrounding bone begins to shrink. This unhealthy bone loss can make your jaw line recede. Dental implants can help prevent deterioration of the jawbone caused by loss of teeth, so your face retains its natural shape.
2. As an alternative to bridgework, dental implants eliminate the need to grind down healthy teeth when replacing one or more adjacent teeth.
3. More comfortable: Because dental implants are securely anchored, there is no slipping or movement as there is with dentures. This eliminates some of the key worries of dentures, including poor fit, gum irritation, and pain from exposed nerves.
4. More confident: With dental implants, you will never need to cover your mouth when laughing, smiling, or speaking. You can eat your favorite foods without pain or fear of embarrassment - and taste every bite. You will look better, feel better, and live more confidently.
Since dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, they naturally enhance your appearance. More importantly, the securely attached implant gives you the confidence of eating what you like, speaking easily and clearly, and freedom from embarrassment. And, by following a regular routine of careful oral hygiene and regular checkups, your implants can last for many years.
Benefits of Implant placement:
As compared to conventional fixed bridges, the long-Term Benefits of an Implant approach are:
-Replaces tooth root, which preserves bone
- Does not require grinding down adjacent teeth
-Prevents bone collapse, providing better long-term cosmetic
-Cleaned like a natural tooth and therefore more hygienic
|Long Term Benefits of Implant Supported Tooth Replacement are:
â€¢ Virtually stops bone loss/deterioration.
â€¢ Maintains integrity of facial structure
â€¢ Improves facial appearance, restoring lost lip support and minimizing wrinkles.
â€¢ â€¢ Increases comfort
â€¢ Restores natural biting and chewing capacity
â€¢ Increases stability as replacement teeth will not move around or fall out
â€¢ Looks, feels, functions like natural tooth, but does not decay
