How Dental Implants Offer A Permanent Solution For Patients
Dental implants are designed from titanium posts that are surgically secured into the jawbone beneath your gum line. Essentially, they act as the new “root” for your replacement tooth. Our dentist uses the implant posts to mount dental crowns onto them to restore your smile and improve your overall health. If you’re looking for a dentist who can perform dental implant surgery in Hamilton, Century Stone is glad to welcome you to their office. We always gladly accept new patients and are more than happy to answer any of your questions regarding replacing missing teeth with state-of-the-art dental crowns and dental implants.
Did you know they have a 98% success rate and not only enhance your smile, but can also improve your jawbone strength, chew and digestion, and improve your low self-esteem?
Dental Implants For Missing Teeth
Once the titanium posts are placed into your jawbone, the bone begins to form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. This will act as the new “root” of your tooth. After approximately three months, the bone will have grown around the implant to firmly hold it in place. Once your jaw has 100% healed and accepted the implants, your replacement tooth can be affixed to the abutment which is attached to the screw. Replacement teeth also called crowns, are often made from porcelain – a very durable and natural-looking dental material. The seal between the crown and implant is very strong and isn’t removable without the help of a dentist.
Do all patients qualify for this treatment?
If you have one or more missing teeth or have been diagnosed with gum disease, your dentist may recommend fixed dentures. However, implants may be a better option for you. They support active lifestyles since you don’t have to worry about removing them for daily cleaning and they’re also a good choice for filling in multiple gaps instead of having a few crowns and bridges.
This treatment is for patients of all ages, but to ensure you’re a good candidate, we look for:
- General good health
- Healthy gums free of gum disease
- Sufficient underlying jawbone to support implants
- Willingness and ability to follow through with necessary oral hygiene
What else do replacement teeth have to offer?
The stability of dental implants means that you can bite and chew with as much pressure as you would have with healthy, natural teeth. If you’ve worn removable dentures, you’ve probably experienced a diminished ability to bite down on foods as hard as you’d like. Sensitivity to bite pressure may also be reduced.
Removable teeth, like some dentures, don’t always fit securely enough and require the use of adhesives to hold them in place. This can lead to sore spots or open sores in the mouth. Implants allow for a tight, immovable hold for a proper bite and adhesives are never required. This reduces soreness in the mouth and creates a more comfortable fit.
Ordinary bridges require teeth on either side of a gap in your teeth. Normally, these existing teeth must be resized to accommodate the bridge to fit over them and anchor it in place. Dental implants erase the need to resize existing teeth. Once the screws are attached to the bone, the crown can be secured to the abutment and that’s it!
This treatment is designed to last a lifetime and have a 98% success rate. You’re able to chew, laugh, talk and smile with the confidence of knowing your replacement teeth are firmly in place and look just like natural teeth.
Healthy gums are essential to support your implants. Infections or inflammation of the gums around the implant can lead to pain and discomfort, and in some cases, infection of the bone. To avoid infection and gum disease, impeccable oral care is required if you have undergone this procedure.
Regular cleanings with a hygienist and routine dental exams ensure that you’ll have a comfortable, healthy experience for years to come. In addition, maintaining oral care at home is crucial. Daily brushing and flossing are the first steps in maintaining implants and preventing gum disease and other oral issues.
