Implants are indicated whenever at least one tooth is missing. If the missing space(s) is not filled, the teeth surrounding the space often drift, the opposing teeth in the other arch will erupt further into the oral cavity (hypereruption) which can change your bite, bone erosion can occur in the area, and even changes in speech might occur. The popularity of implants has increased steadily over the years.
Implants are designed to replace the root of a missing tooth and can be used to support crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Implant supported dentures have gained a major popularity in the recent years. New materials and techniques have made the retention of the implant supported dentures to a greater extent than conventional dentures.
The root-form implant is the most common type and basically consists of three main components:
Your jawbone begins to shrink from lack of stimulation. Losing your teeth will affect your smile and change the shape of your face, causing you to look prematurely aged. Teeth next to the missing tooth can also become loose over time.
Dental implants can be placed in most healthy adults. Your dentist will be able to tell you after a checkup if dental implants are right for you.
No, dental implants are typically placed under local anesthesia. Most treatments can be completed in your dentist's office.
Most people return to work the next day unless otherwise advised by the dentist. You may be prescribed medication to alleviate any minor discomfort you may have.
A bone graft procedure may be needed if your dentist determines there is not sufficient bone or gum tissue.
Implants can last many years if cared for properly. Many implants have been in place for more than 40 years.
Dental implants are low maintenance and provide stability and confidence in your smile. Therefore, the long-term value of dental implants far exceeds conventional treatment options.
