Dental Implants Look and Feel Like Natural Teeth
WebMD defines dental implants as replacement tooth roots that provide a strong foundation for removable or permanent replacement teeth that match your natural teeth.
A tooth implant is an artificial root made of titanium—the titanium root is placed in or on the jawbone. The root fuses itself onto the bone, which prevents further deterioration. Once the root is in place, it serves as an anchor for a replacement bridge or crown.
Dr. Hauser uses the highest quality technology available in tooth replacement: CEREC, or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This technology allows qualified dentists to create and apply porcelain replacement crowns and veneers in only one visit!
Benefits of Dental Implants
Here are seven benefits of dental implants, according to the American Academy of Dental Implants:
1. Next-best thing to natural, healthy teeth:
In addition to looking and feeling like a natural tooth, a dental implant is stable and strong, so it functions the same as a natural tooth.
2. Long-term results:
Dental implants can last a lifetime if cared for properly, whereas a dental bridge may only last seven to 10 years.
3. Improve self-image:
Embarrassing moments in public are a thing of the past—with dental implants, you will no longer have to worry about your smile looking different or broken.
4. Restore facial structure:
When you’re missing teeth, your face may appear sunken and saggy. With dental implants, however, you can easily maintain the natural shape of your face and smile.
5. Improve oral health:
Having missing teeth or gaps in your mouth can lead to health issues, such as the deterioration of your jawbone. The jawbone starts to break down when it is no longer being supported by a natural tooth. Dental implants stimulate and preserve the natural bone, helping to prevent bone loss and to stimulate bone growth.
6. Improved speech:
Dentures produce speech problems, whereas dental implants function like normal teeth, allowing you to speak with ease.
7. No cavities:
Cavities cannot form in an implant-restored crown or a replacement tooth.
Properly Caring For Dental Implants
Although titanium root replacements will not decay, tooth replacements still require good oral hygiene. Here are a few necessary practices to maintain good oral hygiene:
- Schedule professional exams and cleanings every six months.
- Use fluoridated mouth rinse and toothpaste.
- Use an American Dental Association (ADA)-approved electric toothbrush.
- Brush twice daily for two minutes each time.
- Floss after every meal.
Find Out if Dental Implants Are Right for You
The American Academy of Implant Dentistry gives patients a self-test to see if dental implants are something to consider. Check out the test below to see if dental implants are right for you:
Do you have…
- One or more missing teeth?
- A bridge that needs replacing?
- Dentures that affect your quality of life e.g. chewing, slipping or clicking?
- Bite problems or pain?
If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, then dental implants may be an appropriate option for you.
