What are Dental Implants?
To understand how dental implants offer predictable treatment, take some time to learn about how they work. Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount artificial replacement teeth in the form of dental crowns onto them.
How Do Dental Implants Offer Predictable Results?
Because implants are embedded in and fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. Unlike dentures, dental implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth — an especially important benefit when eating and speaking. This secure fit helps the implants feel more natural than dentures.
For some people, ordinary bridges and dentures are simply not comfortable or even possible, due to sore spots, poor ridges or gagging. In addition, ordinary bridges must be attached to teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth. An advantage of implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place.
To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. You must also commit to keeping these structures healthy. Once the implant site has healed, dental implants never need to be removed for cleaning or adjustments unless they are damaged. Meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits are critical to the long-term success of dental implants. Because they never need to be removed and only require the same care as your natural teeth, you can smile in comfort knowing that your implants are secure and supporting your oral health.
