Photo: Dental implants are often the best treatment for missing teeth.Dental implants offer people who are missing one or more of their teeth the opportunity to have their dentition restored to optimum form and function. Dental implant treatment can improve quality of life, comfort, and esthetics – with teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures are truly the next best thing to having a mouth full of strong and healthy natural teeth. They will allow you to confidently eat, smile, laugh, talk, play, and enjoy all of your regular daily activities without thinking about your teeth.

Implants are made of titanium alloy and act as artificial tooth roots. Once implants are placed in the jaw bone, they fuse to the natural bone, a process called osseointegration. They essentially become one with the patient's jaw bone, providing security and stability comparable to healthy tooth roots. Custom-crafted replacement teeth are then attached to the implants via abutments.

Effects of missing teeth

A missing tooth or teeth can affect your smile and also have many negative effects on your oral health including:

  • Bone loss
  • Shifting and drifting teeth
  • Bite changes and chewing difficulty
  • Wearing down of remaining teeth
  • Changes in the jaw joint

 

Why dental implants are the best solution to replace missing teeth?

Bone grows and integrates with the implant surface

  • A dental implant is simply an artificial root that fuses with your bone and acts like a natural tooth root.

Natural looking and feeling

  • An implant-supported restoration looks and feels like a natural tooth – there is no visible difference or special care required.

Preserve jaw bone and facial structure

  • Implants transmit chewing forces to the jaw bone, which helps maintain bone and facial structure. If tooth roots are missing, these forces cease and the bone may slowly recede and cause shifting teeth and facial shape changes.

Maintain adjacent natural teeth

  • Unlike bridges, a dental implant replaces a natural tooth root, and does not require that adjacent natural teeth be ground down to provide support, so your remaining teeth stay intact.

 

Depending on the needs of the individual patient

  • A single implant can be used to secure a dental crown
  • Multiple implants can be used to secure multiple crowns or a dental bridge
  • Several strategically placed implants can be used to secure dentures on the upper arch, lower arch, or both.

Implant-Supported Partial & Full Dentures

An implant-supported denture is a type of over-denture that is supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported by implants.

Implant-supported Crowns & Bridges

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that acts as an artificial tooth root when placed in the jaw. An abutment is then placed over the implant to create an anchor for either a crown or bridge.
