What are Dental Implants and Who Needs Them?
Dental implants or endosseous fixtures are surgical devices that connect to the bone of the jaw to support a dental prosthetic such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthetic, or to serve as an orthodontic anchor.
The process for installing dental implants is called osseointegration and relies on materials like titanium to form a bond to the bone of the jaw. The implant is placed in a way that optimizes the chances of bonding with the bone so that a dental prosthetic can be attached. Healing and osseointegration times will vary from one patient to the next. When healing is complete, a dental prosthetic will be attached, or an abutment will be installed to support a dental prosthetic.
The prosthetic can be fixed, or removable. Removable dental prosthetics can be removed easily for cleaning and replaced. In either case, an abutment will be attached to the implant.
The Advantages of Dental Implants:
Improved appearance. Dental implants look like real teeth.
Improved speech. Poor-fitting dentures can slip, causing you to slur or mumble. Dental implants are permanent and do not slip.
Better comfort. Implants do not irritate the gums, lips or cheeks like removable dentures.
Easier eating. Dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants allow you to eat with confidence, pain-free.
Improved confidence. Dental implants can restore your smile, helping you to feel better about yourself.
Better oral health. With dental implants, nearby teeth need not be altered. With more of your own teeth left intact, you will enjoy better long-term oral health.
Durability. Implants are more durable than dentures.
Convenience. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassment and inconvenience of having to remove and clean dentures.
Success rates vary depending on the oral health, and the overall health of the patient. However, most patients who receive dental implants have a 98% chance of success. A successful implant will be as easy to care for as a real tooth and is nearly impossible for the casual observer to notice. This technology has been perfected over decades and represents a major advance in cosmetic dental care.
