What Is a Dental Implant?
When you have a missing or extracted tooth, it is important that you find a way to fill in the gap. Getting a dental implant is one way of doing just that. In this method, a small titanium post is installed in your jaw that acts as the root of a false tooth which will be installed on top. There are different varieties of appliances that can be attached to an implant, making it a versatile and strong option. You can get a crown, a bridge, or even (with multiple implants) a full set of permanent dentures.
What Makes Implants Better Than Dentures?
Temporary options like dentures or removable bridges can cause an assortment of problems. They are uncomfortable for starters, causing damage and irritation to the gums. They also move and slide around frequently. This can be embarrassing and also quite uncomfortable. Tooth replacement options that sit on the gums’ surface rather than in the bone actually cause bone loss over time.
They are also more difficult to clean, with strict cleaning solutions and guidelines for patients to follow. Implant-based options, though, are an absolute improvement. They are as comfortable as natural teeth! This natural looking option is very comfortable, and they will not shift or slide, and act in just the same way as a real tooth. Their permanence is a large factor too! They can last a lifetime if properly cared for.
This means that they are stable and safe. This option is much easier to clean as you can care for them in much the same way as you would the teeth you have now. Finally, because they sit within your jawbone rather than on the surface of your gums, they stimulate your jaw to keep growing and to remain strong just as a natural tooth root would, eliminating bone loss!
