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. With dental implants, 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 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.
Dental Implant Preparation
A ridge deficiency can prevent a patient from receiving a dental implant. Ridge deficiencies may be caused by developmental defects, lack of preservation, trauma to the face, denture use, or periodontal disease. The loss of bone will leave your jaw in a condition which may be inadequate for the placement of dental implants, dentures, or bridges.
Implant Recovery Time
After the first few days, your recovery will become much easier. Depending on your particular situation, your implants may be “loaded” with a temporary restoration immediately after placement. A temporary restoration is made from a soft material that allows you to maintain chewing function while shielding the implant from the pressures of your bite. Despite your temporary, you may be asked to stick to a soft foods diet for the first few weeks.
Living Life with Dental Implants
Once the final restoration is in place, you will be able to experience all the wonderful benefits of dental implants. Most implant-supported restorations can be treated like your natural teeth, with regular brushing, flossing, and professional checkups. You will be able to eat, speak, and smile with a new sense of confidence and comfort!
