Why Dental Implants are Rooted In Good Dental Care

Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that keeps a replacement tooth or bridge of teeth securely in place. Dental implants are often recommended if something has happened to your natural teeth, which has caused you to lose them. Dental implants are ideal for people with good oral health who are missing some of their natural teeth, yet are also missing the comfort and confidence that is often lost along with those teeth. The best candidates for dental implants have healthy gum tissues and adequate bone in the jaw to support the implant.

There are Two Types of Dental Implants

1. Endosteal: The most common type is the endosteal, which is an implant that is surgically placed in the jawbone to hold one or more prosthetic teeth. It is typically used by people with bridges or removable dentures.

2. Subperiosteal: The subperiosteal is a metal framework that is placed on top of the jawbone just beneath the gum tissue with posts that protrude though the gums to hold the prosthetic teeth in place. This type is best for people who cannot wear traditional dentures or those with minimal bone height.

While you may initially speak to your dentist about the dental implants cost and procedure, you will be referred to a periodontist to develop a treatment plan that meets your needs. Periodontists specialize in creating dental implants that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. They have the knowledge, experience, training, and facilities to work with you and your dentist in Orlando to make your smile better than ever.

While each treatment plan is unique based on the person and the particulars, most procedures follow a similar path. If you’re missing a single tooth, it can be simply replaced by one implant and one crown. If several teeth are missing, then an implant-supported bridge will be needed to secure the new teeth in place. If you’ve lost all of your teeth, this will require an implant-supported full bridge or full denture. And if the quality or quantity of the jawbone is insufficient, then a procedure called a sinus augmentation can help develop the bone enough to keep the dental implants secure.

Once the dental implants have been placed, you will need several follow-up visits to make sure that your implants, teeth, and gums are healthy. It’s important to remember that dental implants require the same good dental care and regular dental visits as natural teeth, so continue to brush and floss on a daily basis. The only difference with dental implants is that they may look and feel even better than your natural teeth ever did!
