Dental Implants Replacement Teeth That Look and Feel Like Your Own
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a periodontist
places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants is an ideal option for people in good
general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease,
an injury, or some other reason.
While high-tech in
nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional
bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighbouring teeth for support.
Dental implants are
so natural-looking and feeling that you may forget you ever lost a tooth. You know that your confidence about your
teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally.
Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. Maybe your
dentures don't feel secure. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing. If you are
missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with
comfort and confidence, there is good news! Dental implants are teeth that can
look and feel just like your own! Under proper conditions, such as placement by
a periodontist and diligent patient maintenance, implants can last a lifetime.
Long-term studies continue to show improving success rates for implants.
What Dental Implants
Replace one or more teeth without affecting bordering teeth.
Support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture.
Provide support for a denture, making it more secure and comfortable.
Advantages of Dental Implants over Dentures or a Bridge
Every way you look at it, dental
implants are a better solution to the problem of missing teeth.
implants look and feel like your own teeth! Since dental implants integrate
into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession
that often accompany bridgework and dentures. No one will ever know that you
have a replacement tooth.
Tooth-saving Dental implants don't sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like
a bridge does because neighbouring
teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left
untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health!
Confidence Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort
and confidence! They are secure and offer freedom from the irksome clicks and
wobbles of dentures. They'll allow you to say goodbye to worries about
misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues.
Reliable The success rate of dental implants is highly predictable. They are
considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.
Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?
The ideal candidate for a dental
implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed
to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that
are free of periodontal disease.
Dental implants are intimately connected
with the gum tissues and underlying bone in the mouth. Since periodontists are
the dental experts who specialize
precisely in these areas, they are ideal members of your dental implant
team. Not only do periodontists have experience working with other dental
professionals, they also have the special knowledge, training and facilities
that you need to have teeth that look and feel just like your own. Your dentist
and periodontist will work together to make your dreams come true.
