Dental implants have now become a standard of treatment for all those who are losing single or multiple teeth in the upper and/or lower arches. However, not all oral surgeons specialize in dental implant methods. So they propose removable dentures or fixed bridges with wire wrapped around the adjacent teeth to keep them in place. This does not prove to be the most comfortable solution.
People with missing teeth can now seek replacement in dental implants. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that your oral surgeon or dental implant expert uses to replace your original roots using a surgery technique. Instead of relying on the gum line like traditional dentures or using healthy teeth in the adjacent areas as anchors like dental bridges, dental implants provide a lasting support to the replacement tooth or bridge. Made of titanium metal that easily integrates within the mouth and replaces the natural roots, dental implants never make uncomfortable noises or slip during speaking or eating. Moreover, they prevent bone loss and cause no harm to the adjacent teeth. The dental implants look and function just like natural teeth. Under proper care and regular maintenance, the implants can last for a life time.
What dental implants offer?
1. The implants help to restore single or multiple missing teeth without damaging adjacent teeth.
2. Eliminate the requirement for a partial or full denture.
3. Provide stable support for replacement teeth, making it more secure and comfortable.
Where are dental implants applicable?
An experienced dental implant expert will inspect the condition of your existing teeth and decide how and where to place your dental implants. Based on your current condition the dentist will create a treatment plan perfect for your needs. Commonly, dental implants are recommended for the following conditions:
Dental implants for replacing a single tooth: A single dental implant can help you to replace a single missing tooth. Here, the dental implant replaces the missing tooth and its root.
Dental implants for replacing multiple teeth: Dental implants can be integrated to replace multiple missing teeth. Missing teeth and roots are being replaced with the help of dental implants.
Dental implants for replacing a full arch of teeth: A full set of implants can replace your entire set of teeth, both bottom and top arches.
