Deciding When You Need Dental Implants

Team Dental Implants

Dental implants seem like the ideal teeth replacement treatment for many individuals, and in a lot of cases they are. Whether you need to replace a missing tooth, require support for a denture, are looking to replace multiple missing teeth, or wish to restore your entire smile without dentures, dental implants could be the solution.

What Are Implants?
Dental implants are a revolutionary permanent treatment method for patients who are missing teeth or who must have teeth removed. One tooth or multiple teeth can be replaced. A titanium screw is placed in the root of the old tooth and a customized porcelain crown is placed on top. Your teeth will be returned to their original, unblemished state, allowing you to eat and drink with no restrictions. It will be like you have your old teeth back again.

You Want A Realistic Smile
Dental implants are not the only way patients can restore missing teeth. You can get custom-fitted dentures as well. While dentures also may seem like a reasonable choice, a common complaint from patients who have opted for dentures over implants is that the teeth look false. Dentures do not provide the same quality and bright appearance of porcelain implants.

Your Missing Teeth Affect Your Daily Life
If you have loose teeth, it can affect your ability to chew and enjoy your favorite foods. Dental implants are becoming more popular because they use the same method as your natural teeth to keep the crown teeth in place and with the use of an artificial tooth root in the gums you no longer have to deal with loose teeth.

Are You A Good Candidate?
Dental implants are successful additions to a healthy mouth. In order to be a good candidate for the procedure, you should have no reoccurring periodontal disease, and you should have a strong jaw and bone structure remaining where the teeth are missing.
