- Why Replace Missing Teeth?
If you need to replace one or more missing teeth, dental implants are a cutting-edge and highly effective option. Unlike many other restorations, these prosthetic teeth replace both a tooth’s root and its crown, serving both the aesthetic and functional purposes of your natural tooth. Each dental implant consists of two parts. The first is the implant post, which replaces your tooth root and anchors your prosthetic tooth to your jawbone for maximum stability. The implant post also stimulates your supporting bone tissue the same way your natural tooth root would, preventing your jawbone from deteriorating when you lose your tooth. The second part of your dental implant is the restoration, replacing the crown of your tooth. This may consist of a single crown, a dental bridge, or an implant-supported denture.
The first step of your implant treatment is an implant placement surgery. This is when the implant post is inserted into your jawbone, and it is followed by a period of healing while the post integrates with your jawbone. Next, our dentist will sit down with you to determine which restoration is right for your smile. Finally, your restoration will be placed on your implant post, completing your treatment.
As permanent replacements for your missing tooth or teeth, dental implants need to be treated with just as much care and attention as you would your natural teeth. This includes your regular dental checkups and hygiene habits, such as daily brushing and flossing.
If you have a healthy mouth and gums but are missing one or more teeth, you are a candidate for dental implants. Patients who suffer from periodontal disease or tooth decay are also eligible for implants, but they must receive periodontal treatment for their pre-existing conditions first.
