Dental implants and your oral health
Did you know that dental implants can provide a permanent solution to gaps in your smile? When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants have been found to be one of the most successful and predictable treatments.
Replacing your missing teeth
Patients often ask about replacing your teeth with bridges which are fixed to the adjacent natural teeth to fill the gap. As an alternative, dental implant treatments combine bio compatible metals and porcelain crowns to replace both the tooth root and the visible part of the tooth.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are made up of two separate elements to give the tooth a natural appearance and feel. First a small titanium implant is set into the gap to replicate the tooth root. Once the wound has healed, the titanium root is later fitted with a porcelain dental crown to give it a natural looking appearance.
How do dental implants work?
When it comes to missing teeth, your oral health can take a turn for the worse if left untreated. Rather than simply covering up the gap as alternative treatments often do, dental implants work to restore both functionality and appearance in order to keep the bone, adjacent teeth and gums healthy.
What can happen if you don’t replace your teeth
There are a number of different problems that can arise when you lose teeth. When there are gaps in your smile, it can cause your other natural teeth to shift in an attempt to fill the gaps. Other concerns like gum irritation from the loss can potentially lead to periodontal disease and further tooth loss.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are capable of lasting a lifetime in the right conditions. There are a few different factors however that can contribute to the longevity of your implants:
· Your oral health
It is important to treat your new dental implant the same as natural teeth. Brushing for 2 minutes and flossing once a day reduces your chances of gum infection. Conditions like gingivitis and periodontal disease can cause the gums to recede and inflame. Gum recession is one of the major causes of dental implant failure and tooth loss.
· The density of your natural jawbone
There is a higher chance of dental implant failure for patients who lack jawbone density. During your appointment here at Smile Perfection Dental Group we will assess your jaw to ensure you have adequate bone to support the dental implant. For patients who unfortunately do not have enough, a bone graft procedure may be recommended in order to restore balance to your smile.
· Lifestyle choices
Smokers and patients with unhealthy diets may have more trouble with caring for their implant. This is because tobacco can damage both the soft and hard tissues in your mouth, potentially causing periodontal disease and further tooth loss.
