What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants fill in gaps in your mouth from missing teeth. Dental implants typically feature a few main components. The implant and abutment are similar to a screw and connect to your jawbone. The implant bonds with your bones there, creating a sturdy base. An artificial tooth in the form of a crown fits on top.
Compared to other dental restoration options, dental implants are one of the few that preserve your jawbone. Not only do they preserve it, but they also can stimulate bone growth.
It is common for dental implant surgery to require more than one procedure. Typically, you will have the implant itself installed into your jawbone. Then, after healing for a few short months, you will have the crown or artificial tooth installed.
There are several types of implants that you should be aware of. We can discuss any of them with you in more detail, but these are the basics:
All-on-4 implants are a variation of the implants used for multiple teeth. They are an alternative to dentures for those missing all the teeth on the upper or lower jaw. The procedure involves installing four implants at strategic places, with other artificial teeth between them. These implants provide support, just like with smaller bridges.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Stop Worrying About Missing Teeth
If you don’t fix the gap from a missing tooth, your adjoining teeth can start to shift to fill in the gap. The jawbone by the missing tooth may also weaken. These issues can worsen your oral health or ability to eat what you want.
Enjoy a Natural-Looking Full Smile
More importantly, once your mouth heals, you can eat nearly anything you want without worries. Speaking clearly will also become easier. As a bonus, getting dental implants prevents your other teeth from shifting into the gap.
