Consider the Advantages of Dental Implants Over Dentures

Dental Implants

If you need to replace missing teeth, your dentist in Downtown Detroit may recommend dental implants. Depending on your health, your lifestyle, and the problem that needs to be fixed, these small dental implants, which are inserted into the upper or lower jaw, may be a better option than dentures. The ideal candidate for dental implants must be in good overall health and have healthy gums and adequate bone structure to support the implant. They must be committed to meticulous dental care and willing to make repeat visits to the dental implant dentist.

If a patient has a medical condition that could impact healing, dental implants might not be the best choice. Smoking or heaving drinking may also preclude implants. The most likely candidates for implants are people with loose or poor-fitting dentures as a result of flat ridges, or individuals missing multiple teeth who need support for crowns and bridges.

For patients who are candidates, affordable dental implants offer many advantages. Aside from feeling more natural than dentures, dental implants offer an alternative for those whose dentures are loose or poorly fitting. Implants can reduce the movement of bridges, crowns and dentures as well as provide support for removable dentures and bridgework.

Your dental implant dentist will determine the best dental implants for you. The most common type, the endosteal implant, is inserted into the jawbone to serve as the tooth’s root. For those who can no longer wear conventional dentures, subperiosteal implants are a lightweight option designed to fit directly on the existing bone. Both types of dental implants are made from biologically compatible materials—typically metals like titanium—to avoid the type of antigen-antibody response that sometimes leads to rejection in heart and kidney transplants.

Generally, dental implants are safe for patients who pass the initial screening. Your dentist in Downtown Detroit will help you choose the best dental implants based on your individual circumstances.
