Dental Implants – Beginning of a New Era in Cosmetics Dentistry
Posted On: July 18, 2017
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth "root" placed in your mouth to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, denture or bridge. It is made from titanium alloy and it fuses around the jawbone serving as a root for the missing tooth. This is by far the best - if not the only long-term option for tooth replacement.
Till a few decades ago, the only remedy to losing tooth was removable dentures or a fixed bridge. And we all know the trouble we have to go through to maintain them, not to mention its inherent discomforts.
"Dental implants" bring along a wave of fresh air and act as a source of relief to subscribers of the dental community to look, feel and function like natural teeth.
1. Dental implant procedures have a high success rate
The success rate of dental implant procedures varies depending on the dental health of the individual, wherein the jaw implants are placed and the expertise of the person who carried out the procedure. But generally, dental implants have a success rate of up to 95%!
2. Implants look, feel and function as natural
When it comes to appearance and feel, the only difference between dental implants and real teeth is that it is not real teeth. They are customized to look, feel and fit exactly like all the other teeth in your dental collection.
3. Implants make eating easier
Unlike other dental treatment options, implants enable you to enjoy a most natural and satisfying chewing experience. You do not have to take special care when eating and they do not slide like traditional dentures do often.
4. Implants serve as a replacement for the roots of your missing tooth
When you lose a tooth, it creates a void where the root was situated. Unfortunately, most tooth replacement options only focus on replacing the crown of the teeth. Dental implants focus on the parts of the teeth that cannot be seen – namely the roots, or the sub-level.
5. Implants can help protect healthy teeth
When you lose a tooth, one of the most widely used teeth replacement options has been the dental bridge. Often times, this involves cutting of some parts of adjacent healthy teeth. Thanks to dental implants, we can now position a crown or a bridge on the dental implant itself. Other teeth do not need to suffer because of the affected one.
