Title: Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth

Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth
What are Dental Implants?
  • Dental implant is likely the best permanent
    solution for those suffering from tooth loss. A
    dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth
    root that holds a prosthetic tooth in place. The
    prosthetic tooth will not require any special
    denture creams, pastes, or glues to stay in
    place. Because it is an artificial root rather
    than just a tooth, it also doesnt require the
    support of neighboring teeth the way a crown
    does. This makes dental implants ideal for those
    who are missing multiple teeth, or those who
    simply dont want to damage additional teeth in
    order to replace one.

How do Dental Implants Work?
  • Dental implants are made up of titanium and other
    materials that are compatible with the human
    body. They are posts that are surgically placed
    in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as
    a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth.
  • Dental implants enhanced ability to chew and
    enjoy your food, and often protection of your
    remaining teeth and jawbone.
  • To receive implants, you need to have healthy
    gums and adequate bone to support the implant.
    You must also commit to keeping these structures
    healthy. Meticulous oral hygiene and regular
    dental visits are critical to the long-term
    success of dental implants.

Types of Dental Implants
  • Various types of dental implants are available,
  • Endosteal (in the bone) This is the most
    generally utilized kind of insert. The different
    sorts incorporate screws, chambers or cutting
    edges surgically set into the jawbone. Every
    insert holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This
    kind of insert is by and large utilized as an
    option for patients with extensions or removable
  • Subperiosteal (on the bone) These are set on top
    of the jaw with the metal system's posts
    projecting through the gum to hold the
    prosthesis. These sorts of inserts are utilized
    for patients who can't wear ordinary dentures and
    who have negligible bone stature.

What are the options for implant tooth
  •  We have different option to restoring a missing
  • Single Tooth Replacement
  • Single-tooth implants can be used in people who
    are missing one or more teeth. An implant is
    surgically placed in an opening that your dentist
    makes in the jawbone. After the implant
    integrates (attaches) to your bone, it acts as a
    new "root" for the crown that will replace your
    missing tooth. A crown (cap), which is made to
    look like a natural tooth, is attached to the
    implant and fills the space left in the mouth by
    the missing tooth.

Multiple Tooth Replacement
  • Replacing multiple teeth using dental implants
    with individual crowns or with an
    implant-supported fixed bridge gives your teeth a
    level of fit, feel and functionality that is not
    possible with other treatment options. The
    process is often completed over multiple
    visits Placement of the dental implants that
    will be used to support your replacement teeth.
    Temporary teeth can be placed while the dental
    implant integrates with your natural bone to form
    a strong foundation for your replacement teeth.
    Most people return to work the next day, and any
    discomfort can typically be treated with commonly
    used pain medication.

Full Mouth Dental Implants
  • If you are missing all of your teeth, an
    implant-supported full bridge or full denture can
    replace them. Dental implants will replace both
    your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.
  • Placement of the abutments, or connectors placed
    on, or built into, the top of the implant to help
    connect your replacement teeth, if needed.
    Additional connecting devices needed to attach
    multiple replacement teeth to the implants also
    may be placed at this time.

Benefits of Dental Implants
  • Improved appearance Dental implants look and
    feel like your own teeth. And because they are
    designed to fuse with bone, they become
  • Improved speech With poor-fitting dentures, the
    teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to
    mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow
    you to speak without the worry that teeth might
  • Improved comfort Implants eliminate the
    discomfort of removable dentures. And can make
    chewing difficult allowing you to eat your
    favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
  • Improved self-esteem Dental implants can give
    you back your smile and help you feel better
    about yourself.
  • Improved oral health Dental implants don't
    require reducing other teeth, as a
    tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth
    are not altered to support the implant, more of
    your own teeth are left intact, improving
    long-term oral health. Individual implants also
    allow easier access between teeth, improving oral
  • Durability Implants are very durable and will
    last many years. With good care, many implants
    last a lifetime.
  • Convenience Removable dentures are just that
    removable. Dental implants eliminate the
    embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures,
    as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep
    them in place.

How much do dental implants cost?
  • Well, it depends on several things such as the
    material of the bridge and the crown and the
    location (where you get the bridge done). There
    are many variants of material for crowns and the
    dental bridge. There are stainless steel crown,
    metal crown, porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, all
    resin dental crown, and all porcelain or all
    ceramic crown. And you have metal, porcelain or
    even gold for your dental bridge. Well, at least
    you don't have to be a rapper to have some
    sparkling gold teeth.

Are Dental implants safe?
  • Dental implant surgery is one of the safest and
    most predictable procedures in dentistry when
    performed by a trained and experienced dental
    implant dentist. A dental implant is the
    strongest device available to support replacement
    teeth, and it allows your replacement teeth to
    feel, look and work naturally. In addition,
    dental implants are the only restoration method
    that stimulates your natural bone underneath the
    missing tooth.

How do I care for my dental implants?
  • Caring for teeth restored with dental implants is
    just like caring for your natural teeth brush,
    floss and maintain regular dental cleanings and
    check-ups, as scheduled. Additional cleaning aids
    also may be recommended to help you keep your
    teeth healthy at home.
