What are dental implants?
Potentially the single most exciting advancement in dentistry in the past 50 years. The first titanium dental implant was performed in 1965, by an orthopedic surgeon named Branemark. The procedure’s success quickly led to significant improvement in the techniques used for tooth replacement.
A dental implant is a replicated tooth root that is positioned into your jawbone. Dental implants are a great option for people who have lost one or more teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or other reasons.
You can now have a tooth implanted directly into your jawbone without suffering the discomfort and inconvenience of a bridge. Dental implants are designed to feel just like a normal tooth, and while the dental implants into the jawbone may sound uncomfortable, it is regarded as one of the most gentle procedures you can have done in a dental clinic – providing minimal discomfort for patients undergoing the procedure.
Advantages of Dental Implants
Aside from the cosmetic advantages, there are several other advantages to having dental implants. Here are the most common.
Natural look & feel
Because dental implants are designed to both look and feel like your own teeth, they resemble regular teeth too. Being that they are fused into the bone, they offer a permanent, convenient, and comfortable solution.
Poorly fitted dentures can cause your teeth to slip inside your mouth, resulting in slurred or mumbled speech. Dental implants, on the other hand, allow you to speak with confidence knowing your teeth will not slip.
Easier eating & drinking
Dentures that slip can make eating and drinking particularly challenging and inconvenient. Implants offer the ability to chew and swallow without pain and with the confidence you would enjoy eating and drinking with your own teeth.
Dental implants can help increase your confidence and self-esteem, giving you a lot of reason to show off your newly acquired perfect smile.
Enhance oral health
Unlike a dental bridge, implants do not require the reduction of other teeth. Surrounding teeth do not need to be altered to support the implant. Dental implants also do not impact your adjacent teeth.
Traditional methods such as dentures and bridges can weaken surrounding teeth, leading to tooth decay. By not causing stress to adjacent teeth and leaving more of your own teeth intake, results in improvements in long-term oral health.
Furthermore, individual implants allow for improved access between the teeth, which also improves oral health.
Dental implants are extremely long-lasting. With proper care, patients can expect their implants to last a lifetime.
Removing dentures are very inconvenient. Implants are a great alternative because they provide a permeant solution and do not require removal or messy adhesive to keep them in place.
Types of Dental Implants
There are 2 types of dental implants
Endosteal – The most common type. It involves surgically placing various types of screws, cylinders or blades into the jawbone. Each implant is capable of holding one or more prosthetic teeth. Generally, this type of implant is ideal for patients who are looking for a better alternative to bridges or removable dentures.
Subperiosteal – This type of implant is suitable for patients who are unable to wear traditional dentures because of minimal bone height. It involves placement on top of the jawbone with the metal framework’s posts protruding through the gum to hold the prosthesis.
Who is a good candidate for dental implants?
The most suitable candidate for a dental implant is a patient with good overall and oral health. Sufficient bone in the jaw and healthy gum tissue are required to support the implant.
