Before considering dental implants as a replacement for missing teeth, it is important to understand how the procedure works. Dental implants are essentially artificial teeth that are attached to the jawbone as a way of securing a replacement bridge. During the first stage of the procedure, the decayed teeth will be removed and metal implants will be surgically placed into the jawbone. Once the dental implants have had sufficient time to fuse with the jawbone, a crown will be placed on top of the abutment. This is a procedure reserved for those with damaged or missing teeth.
There are several different procedures available to replace missing teeth with dental implants:
Dental implants have several advantages over traditional dentures. For one, they are made from titanium, which is able to naturally fuse with bone. This allows for more stability and natural functioning teeth. Dental implants can also be used to replace any number of missing teeth, whereas dentures can only replace large number of missing teeth. Dental implants last longer than dentures and are healthier. Because they are attached to the jaw bone, they are able to stimulate growth and prevent deterioration.
Almost anyone can be a candidate for dental implants. As long as you are in good oral health and have a sufficient amount of bone tissue in the area, you will be able to receive implants. Because Dental implants are so closely connected with gum tissue and the underlying bone, you must be free of gum disease.
