What is a Dental Implant?
An implant is a man-made replacement for natural teeth which allows the person to return to fixed teeth. It is not a transplant, which is taken from another person. They are made of titanium, which is lightweight, strong and biocompatible, which means that it is not rejected by the body. Titanium and titanium alloys are the most widely used metals in both dental and other bone implants.
Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
Anyone who is missing one or more (even all) of their teeth may be a candidate for implants. If all or most of your teeth are missing, then implants may be placed to anchor a denture. You would require a clinical exam to determine your potential for implants and an x-ray to evaluate the amount of bone remaining. Sometimes, if there is already some bone loss, bone can be added and regenerated.
Why should I consider dental implants? What will happen if I don’t replace by lost teeth?
Firstly, there is an esthetical issue as missing teeth lead to an unattractive smile, poor speech and loss of confidence.
Secondly and most importantly, when you lose your teeth, you gradually lose the bone that supported them. As this bone disappears, problems with other teeth nearby happen. This results in loose teeth. Since the bone is deteriorating, it will spread and deteriorate around healthy teeth and ultimately cause the loss of those teeth too.
It's much better to replace a tooth before all of the side effects kick in. By waiting, you risk the possibility of not being able to receive the same, simple type of treatment that would have been possible earlier.
How long do implants last?
Different long term research studies have shown that implants which have been placed in good bone can last for a patient's lifetime. Regular maintenance, dental hygienist visits, excellent homecare and smoke free lifestyle will help to ensure the success rate of your implants as high as 98%.
How Painful Are Dental Implants?
Most people who have received dental implants say that there is very little discomfort involved in the procedure. Local anesthesia can be used during the procedure, and most patients report that implants involve less pain than a tooth extraction.
After the dental implant, mild soreness can be treated with over-the-counter pain killers
How Do I Care for Dental Implants?
Dental implants require the same care as real teeth, including brushing, flossing, rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash, and regular dental check-ups and hygiene visits for clean and polish procedure.
