Dental implants are a great option for anyone missing one or more teeth. They are the only teeth replacement option that replace the lost roots of missing teeth. Other alternatives like dentures and bridges simply replace the visible part of the tooth. Dental implants are rod/screws that are inserted into a patient's jaw to serve as artificial roots for a crown

How dental implants help

Dental implants are the popular way to replace missing teeth thanks to many awesome benefits like:

  • Easier to talk with: Dental implants feel just like a real tooth so there is no adjustment period. Other oral prosthetics like dentures can take a while to get used to. Many people experience difficulty speaking when starting out with dentures
  • Looks real: Dental implants look just like real teeth, so people the patient interacts with will not be able to tell these are artificial teeth.
  • No discomfort: Dental implants feel just like real teeth so it is easy to forget they are even there. That's a big difference from dentures which are known to cause lots of discomfort due to their lack of stability
  • Easy to eat with: Patients who opt for dental implants are able to go back to enjoying their favorite foods unlike those who go with dentures or bridges
  • Long-lasting solution: Dental implants can last an entire lifetime with good oral hygiene.
  • Easy to maintain: Dental implants do not require any special cleaning like dentures or bridges. Good oral hygiene is all the maintenance these oral prosthetics need
  • No embarrassing moments: Implants are permanently attached to the patient's jaw, so there is no risk of the artificial tooth falling out. People who wear traditional dentures often find themselves worrying about their artificial teeth falling out in public.

What to expect when getting implants

The process of getting implants starts with a visit to the dentist. The patient will be evaluated to determine if they have enough bone tissue to hold the implant in place. During the day of the treatment, the dentist will make an incision into the patient's jaw and drill a hole into it. The implant is pushed into the hole until it is securely held in place.

The incision is closed back up and the patient is given up to six months for the implant to fuse with the bone tissue surrounding it. The process is called osseointegration. Once completed, an abutment and crown are attached to the implant.

The installation of implants requires minor oral surgery, so patients need to have decent general and dental health to be eligible for the treatment. Once dental implants are installed, the patient will only need to see a dentist twice a year for general checkups.
