Dental implants are beginning to reveal to the world that they are the best possible treatment for missing teeth. For years, patients suffering from missing teeth used to have to settle for treatments like dental bridges and dentures, both of which have a reputation for providing replacement teeth that are uncomfortable and unreliable. However, dental implants surpass these treatments by providing restorations that work and feel just like natural teeth. This quality of treatment is possible because dental implants are able to convince your body that they are no different from your remaining natural teeth. We encourage you to read on to learn more about dental implants, the parts that make them, and how they function to provide you with beautiful, functional replacement teeth that are comfortable and reliable.
Dental implants can come in a variety of different part combinations, and we have even seen implants made up of only two parts. However, the most popular form of implant and the one oral surgeon Dr. Ahmad Chaudhry uses at our office is made up of three pieces. These are:
Because of a process called osseointegration, dental implants come with many exclusive benefits that set them apart from other tooth restoration treatments. Osseointegration is a naturally occurring process that utilizes the jawbone’s ability to regenerate in order to better anchor dental implants in place. Thanks to osseointegration, your dental implants are held permanently in place, ensuring that they will never move out of position or fall out. This is a big change from dental bridges and dentures, both of which have a reputation for becoming displaced.
Osseointegration also ensures that your dental implants will require no additional care to stay healthy and strong. You will merely need to brush and floss them properly, while being sure to attend your regular scheduled cleanings and checkups. Other treatments need to be removed every night and soaked in a cleaning solution, which can start to cost you over time. Because your implant is fused directly to your jawbone, your treatment will also be able to prevent jawbone deterioration, which can have negative effects on the health of your jaw as well as on your facial appearance. Lastly, in addition to these health and lifestyle benefits, your dental implants will end up lasting you far longer than any other restoration treatment available. In fact, with the right care, your dental implants can end up lasting you a lifetime.
Looking at the benefits of dental implants, it is clear to see why so many patients are beginning to choose implants over other tooth restoration treatments.
