Dental Implant Advantages
A dental implant is a synthetic tooth root that is surgically placed into the jawbone. The “root” is usually made of titanium: the same material used in many replacement hips and knees, and well-suited to pairing with human bone. Your replacement tooth is then fixed to the implant post. The tooth can be either permanently attached or removable. Permanent teeth are more stable and feel more like natural teeth.
Conventional bridges and dentures are not fixed to the bone, and can therefore be unstable. This can make it difficult for you to eat or smile with confidence. Because dental implants are rooted into the jawbone, implants feel and act like normal teeth. Implants look completely natural and grant a stronger biting force. Better yet, because they don't rely on neighboring teeth for support like bridges or dentures do, dental implants don't compromise the health of your natural teeth. In fact, bridges are only expected to last seven to ten years, whereas implants will typically last a lifetime!
Single or Multiple Implants
Implants are versatile, and Dr. Sarosi has the implant experience to solve many different issues. If you are only missing one tooth, one implant plus one replacement tooth will do the trick. If you are missing several teeth in a row, a few strategically placed implants can support a permanent bridge. Similarly, if you have lost all of your teeth, a full set of replacement teeth can be permanently fixed in your mouth with a strategic number of implants, giving you stability and confidence that dentures can't match.
Implant Treatment and Care
The ideal candidate for implants is a non-smoker who has good oral health, including a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw, and healthy gums with no sign of gum disease. Healthy habits are just as important after you receive your dental implants as well.
Consider your replacement teeth to be the same as natural teeth. They require the same daily brushing and flossing, and the same amount of regular checkups. Just like your natural teeth, the better you take care of your replacements, the longer they will last.
