What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants consist of a screw that is gently implanted into the jawbone and holds either a replacement tooth or a set of teeth in place. Dental implants can also be used to attach dentures.
When you lose a tooth, it can affect your appearance as well as your oral health. Dental implants not only restore the aesthetics of your smile, but also provide support for your cheeks and lips, which prevents sagging facial tissues. They are designed to fuse with bone tissue over time. This provides stability to the replacement teeth. Dental implants are often an ideal solution for replacing a single tooth or a full set of teeth.
Dental implants can be made from a variety of materials, including titanium and biocompatible ceramic materials that are both durable and aesthetically appealing. Implants placed in the front of your mouth can look like natural teeth. In fact, they are so lifelike that only you will know they are not your original teeth.
Dental implants can also be used to attach dentures. Dentures supported by implants function just like natural teeth, enabling you to eat the foods you enjoy and maintain good oral hygiene.
Dental implants are suitable for people of any age. Your dentist may recommend them if you have healthy gums, adequate bone volume, and good oral hygiene. They can also be the ideal solution for those who have missing teeth or who are edentulous, meaning toothless. Typically, dental implants are permanent solutions for people who are missing one tooth to an entire mouthful of teeth.
Dental implants can be used to replace individual missing teeth. In these cases, a single implant is placed for each missing tooth. Once the implant has been successfully integrated into your jaw, your dentist will then top each implant with a crown, giving you an elegant, functional replacement tooth.
Implant supported bridge
bridge vs. implant
If you have a row of missing teeth, implants can also be used to support a bridge to fill in the gap. This can be a more cost-effective approach than using single implants to fill in for each missing tooth individually, as the bridge can be held in place using fewer implants. Implant-supported bridges also tend to be sturdier and more effective than traditional dental bridges.
