At Dental Savers Spa, we offer a variety of methods for replacing teeth because we value you and we want to give the best and long lasting solution that’s suited for you. One of the services we offer is dental implant.
Dental implants are metal posts that are surgically positioned into the jawbone of the teeth beneath your gums to provide support for your artificial teeth. One of the best advantages of implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth or teeth in place. In order to receive implants, your gums must be healthy and you should have adequate bone to support the implant. And to ensure long term success of the implant, proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits are important.
Why should you consider getting a dental implant?
- When you lose a tooth, the surrounding teeth will eventually begin moving to fill in the space and you want to stop your teeth from shifting into the empty space because this can only cause a number of dental complications. Placing a dental implant will keep your teeth properly spaced which will make it easier for you to clean them.
- Choosing dental implant over fixed bridge will prevent deterioration of your jawbone.
- You can avoid a wide variety of complications with dentures such as poor fit, sore in the mouths, sunken lips and food restrictions.
- Dental implant can help you preserve your appearance because it provides the stimulation your body needs to produce dense, healthy jawbone material and keep your face looking full and youthful. If you have a missing teeth, your jawbone will begin to deteriorate and will cause your face to appear sunken in. Getting a dental implant will help you avoid getting this look.
What are the procedures involved in dental implant?
- Replacing a Single Tooth. If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it.
- Replacing Several Teeth. If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them.
- Replacing All of Your Teeth. If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them.
- Sinus Augmentation. Sinus augmentation helps correct the problem of insufficient bone quantity and quality in the upper back jaw by raising the sinus floor and developing bone for the placement of dental implants.
- Ridge Modification. This process corrects the problem of having inadequate bone in which to place the dental implant by lifting the gum away from the ridge to expose the bony defect. The defect is then filled with bone or bone substitute to build up the ridge. Ridge modification is known to greatly improve appearance and increase your chances for successful implants in the future.
There are many advantages of getting dental implants and some are the following:
- Improved appearance – dental implants look and feel like your own teeth and they become permanent because they are designed to fuse with the bone
- Improved speech – dental implants allow you to speak without having to worry that the tooth might slip, unlike with poor fitting dentures with teeth slipping in your mouth, causing you to mumble or slur your words.
- Improved comfort – implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures because they become part of you
- Easier eating – loose and slipping dentures make it difficult for you to eat and chew. Dental implants function naturally just like your teeth, so you do not have to worry about any restrictions on eating the food that you like.
- Improved self-esteem – dental implants can improve your appearance by filling in the space of the missing teeth and therefore will make you feel more confident.
- Improved oral health – In dental implant, there is no need to alter the nearby teeth which allows you to keep more of your teeth to be left intact. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
- Durability – implants are durable and can last for many years and can even possibly last a lifetime if given proper care.
- Convenience – Dental implants eliminate the inconvenience of removing dentures as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
