The benefits of Dental implants
When you lose or damage a tooth it can be a crushing blow to your self esteem. While there are many options available to patients when this happens, dental implants are very popular because they look great and are virtually zero-maintenance.
Because dental implants are fixed, you’ll never need to worry about your teeth slipping when you’re eating or speaking, as you might with a denture. They behave exactly in the same way as your real teeth and can last much longer than crowns. In fact, with proper oral hygiene and regular dental care, they can last at least 15-20 years.
Unlike dental bridges, no other teeth are affected by the introduction of dental implants, which means that your oral hygiene regimen is easy to maintain.
Because dental implants behave just like your real teeth, they help you to regain your confidence and self esteem. No more half smiles or being worried about getting caught laughing on camera.
How are Dental Implants fitted?
The first step is that molds need to be made of your mouth. This ensures that your implants are perfectly crafted to match your mouth and give you a bite that feels natural. When your molds are made, the implant is created and refined to perfectly fit your mouth.
Before the procedure, your dentist will give you a local anaesthetic to numb the mouth and jaw. Next, a titanium post is inserted into the jaw bone where the root of your tooth was (incomplete teeth are removed well in advance). As the jaw bone heals over the following 6 - 12 weeks, it seals around the post, ensuring a really secure fit. This is the key to making implants feel just like your real teeth.
Once the post is set, a small connector post called an abutment is added to which the implant is later secured. Usually a crown is attached to the abutment although some patients prefer to use an attachment to which removable or interchangeable dentures are secured.
What will my dental implants look like?
Your dental implants should look just like your real teeth! Your dentist will go to great efforts to make sure that your new implants not only look like the rest of your teeth but give you a bite that feels both comfortable and familiar.
If you plan on getting your teeth whitened, it’s a good idea to do so before getting an implant made and fitted so that your implant can be matched to the new, whiter color.
