Missing teeth will negatively impact your smile and this will not only affect the appearance of your smile, but its functionality as well. Missing teeth must be addressed right away, otherwise you may require more extensive and expensive treatment in the future.
Dental implants are a great solution you can consider as this will last you a lifetime if proper care is applied. This treatment is highly recommended as it is a permanent solution that will help restore the look and functionality of your smile.
What are dental implants?
This is a surgical process during which an implant screw and the prosthetic will be placed into your mouth. Both the screw and abutment are made from titanium, as this material will not irritate your gum tissue and bones. For the prosthetic, a dental crown is usually used, which is made of porcelain and is very durable and will blend in perfectly with your natural teeth.
A dentist will first have to confirm that you are a suitable candidate for this treatment and will physically examine your mouth during a consultation. They will also take x-rays and will discuss your personal habits at home like how often you brush and floss. It is a must that the patient have healthy gums and a strong jawbone, as these factors will ensure the treatment is successful.
What to expect:
If you are a suitable candidate, your dentist will take impressions of your smile and dental technicians will use this to create a crown that fits you properly. They will then install the screw and the abutment and a dental drill will be used to embed the screw directly in your jawbone, after which the abutment is placed. Once this is complete, your mouth will need a few weeks to heal and the screw will fuse with your bone tissue during this time to establish a solid foundation for your smile.
You will have to return to your dentist eventually to receive the crown, and you will then have a beautiful smile you can show off!
Dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth, which is one of the biggest benefits of this treatment. It is a safe procedure and is not painful because you will be given anaesthesia to numb the area. Your implant will never slip around and will reinforce your facial structure, and you will be able to eat, chew and speak comfortably. Dental implants will improve the overall look of your smile and will boost your self-esteem.
