Dental Implants – The Most Natural Solution to Tooth Loss

Dental Implants

Dental implants are quickly becoming the standard of care when it comes to replacing one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are technologically advanced restorations that are designed to act as a supporting structure for porcelain crowns, dental bridges, or dentures.

Before dental implants were available, fixed dental bridges were used to replace one tooth or a few teeth, while dentures were generally recommended when most or all of the teeth were missing. However, dentures tended to pinch and slip, and patients would need to have them adjusted over the years to maintain a comfortable fit. Dental bridges require the alteration of healthy tooth tissue, which can increase the risk of other dental health problems. Bridges also may need to be re-bonded or replaced every five to seven years. Dental implants eliminate these issues because they replace both the root and the crown of the lost teeth and integrate with the jawbone to provide sturdy, lasting support.

There are two types of dental implants are available: endosteal implants, which fit directly into the jawbone, and subperiosteal implants, which are placed over the jawbone. The design of the dental implants results in a restoration that feels remarkably like your own natural teeth. The extremely versatile dental implants can be used to support porcelain crowns, bridges, or dentures for a completely customized restoration solution.

The ideal candidates for dental implants are in good general health and have good dental health. They have adequate bone to support the implant, and do not engage in heavy drinking or smoking, which can hinder healing. Patients must also be committed to maintaining good dental care habits after receiving dental implants. A skilled dentist can provide the dental implants cost and help you determine if you are a candidate for the procedure.

Dental implants are made with biocompatible titanium, so the risk of complications is extremely low. However, all surgical procedures carry some risk of complications and may not be right for all patients or situations, so it is important to talk to a dentist in Downtown Detroit about your options.
