Implant dentistry is a modern way to bring back your complete smile. Compared with bridges or removable dentures, dental implants are surgically inserted into your jawbone to support the replacement teeth.
A dental implant is made out of pure titanium, which is known to be a safe and effective replacement for the tooth root. Since the titanium is biocompatible, it does not cause any harm or pain to surrounding cells.
The integration of the implant with your natural bone forms a sturdy base for the replacement teeth. With the advancement of dental implants, you can now restore the aesthetics and function of your teeth.
Candidates for Implant Dentistry
Consulting your dental specialist is the best way to determine if dental implants are the best option for your condition. During the consultation, be sure to mention your health condition and the medicines you take as well as if you’re a smoker. An ideal candidate for dental implants must have:
- Healthy teeth and gums
- Sufficient bone density to support the implant
- Committed to good dental hygiene habits
- Not had a treatment with bisphosphate medications
- Not suffering from chronic conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes or autoimmune disorders, which may affect your capability heal
- Non-smoker or willing to quit during the dental implant process
The Importance and Benefits of Dental Implants
When you are missing a natural tooth, the teeth on either side of the gap may shift and tip over into the space. This makes it harder to clean these teeth and decay or gum disease may result.
An implant can fill the gap and maintain the rest of your natural teeth in the ideal position and prevent them becoming crooked. An implant can also replace a denture that you have worn for years.
