Benefits of Dental Implants
A dental implant is a reliable option for replacing missing teeth. It is made up of three parts: a titanium post that makes up for missing tooth roots, an abutment used to connect the post to a prosthetic, and the artificial tooth that restores the implant, giving your smile a natural look and feel.
Implants have various benefits which include:
- Reviving the beauty of your smile with their natural appearance
- Restoring your bite functionality, as they feel like your natural teeth
- Preserving your facial structure by stimulating the jawbone
- Preventing the shifting of adjacent teeth
- Being permanent and durable, lasting decades with proper care
How Do I Know Implants are a Good Option for Me?
Dental implants are a viable choice for nearly anyone with missing teeth. However, before undergoing dental implant surgery, there are certain conditions you need to meet. Your gums need to be in excellent condition, and your jawbone needs to have enough density.
During a consultation, Dr. Newton will thoroughly examine your mouth and check your oral health. If you qualify for a dental implant, our dentist will refer you to a skilled specialist to place your implants. We will then place your custom restoration.
Pretreatments for Successful Dental Implants
Based on your oral health, some required pretreatments might be necessary. Below are common treatments that can help your dental implant placement succeed.
- Gum Disease Treatment: Your gums are the foundation that holds your teeth in place and protects your tooth roots. They need to be healthy to support your implants. If you have gum disease, we will refer you to a skilled periodontist for treatment.
- Bone Grafting: If your jawbone doesn’t have sufficient density or is too soft, we will refer you to an oral surgeon for a bone grafting procedure. This will strengthen your jawbone and prepare it to receive the implant.
- Extractions: In case the tooth that needs replacement is damaged rather than missing, it will need to be extracted before proceeding with the dental implant.
Which Implant Restoration is Right for Me?
Before implant placement, Dr. Newton will work closely with you to plan your restorations based on your specific situation. The needed restoration can be a crown, a denture, or a bridge.
Porcelain Crowns: You’ll receive a single implant and a crown if you are only missing one tooth. This will provide the chewing pressure you need to maintain your jawbone structure.
Porcelain Fixed Bridges: An implant-supported bridge is used to replace multiple missing teeth in a row. This fixed bridge doesn’t rely on neighboring teeth for support. The prosthetic teeth are anchored to two crowns placed on implant posts on each side.
Porcelain Fixed Dentures: An entire arch of missing teeth can be replaced with a fixed denture supported by six to eight dental implants. This restoration allows you to speak clearly and chew effectively and will not slip or rub against your gums.
Why Choose Porcelain Restorations?
Our practice uses porcelain restorations to provide you with the quality dental work you deserve. Porcelain is a sturdy, durable material that can withstand the daily pressure we put on our teeth when we chew food. It delivers aesthetically pleasing results since it resembles your natural teeth. It is also stain-resistant, helping your smile stay bright.
Does an Implanted Tooth Need Special Care?
When you get dental implants, they become yours forever. There is no special care required other than maintaining regular oral hygiene as you would to protect your natural teeth.
