How crucial replacing missing teeth is…
Losing a tooth can be upsetting. But did you know that a loss of even a single tooth can lead to emotional distress? Or that missing teeth can make you look unhealthy and old before time? Unusual it may sound but a loss of teeth or two can cause loss of confidence affecting your life.
Interestingly, the missing teeth cause shrinkage of the jawbone. This would further lead to sagging of the skin around your jaw and chin, eventually causing your cheeks to sink in and thus making the face look older. This is how your missing teeth can accelerate your aging process and thus have an undesirable impact on your appearance.
But don’t wait longer for these discouraging signs to make a negative mark on your health and looks.
Dental implants – Your Answer to Missing Teeth
Dental Implants – A Long-term solution
Dental Implants: For permanent Tooth Replacement
Dental implants also called as tooth implants can be answer to your missing teeth. A dental implant is an artificial metal tooth root that an Oral Implantologist like Dr. Vikas Gowd places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.
An enduring option for restoring that healthy smile, dental implants treatment is quite an effective option for missing tooth replacement as it replaces the natural tooth and its root as well. Even if you have a single missing tooth, a tooth implant and a crown can replace your lost natural tooth with artificial tooth.
As they blend with your other teeth, dental implants feel, look and function just like your natural teeth. And so, they should be taken care of just like natural teeth. They can therefore be aptly called as permanent artificial teeth.
Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, failure of endodontic, an injury, or some other reason.
In addition to its use in replacing broken/missing teeth, implants can also be used to provide support to loose, removable dentures.
TYPES OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
Whilst dental implants come in various types, sizes and heights, there are mainly two types of dental implants which your dentist can help you determine.
Endosteal dental implants are typically made of titanium and are in the form of cylindrical screws. Most commonly used one, these types of dental implants are placed in the jawbone.
Sub periosteal dental implants are suggested to those who do not have a healthy natural jawbone and therefore they are placed under the gum and on/above the jawbone.
Then there are same day implants or Teeth in a Day process for those having time as a constraint. The single day dental implants provide instant results and restore complete teeth functioning in just one visit to the dentist. Full mouth dental implants are also available for those who are not ready for dentures and they can be done in 3-7 days.
The Dental Implants Procedure
Dental implants procedure is a very technique sensitive treatment. The tooth implant process involves a small high-tech titanium fixture that serves as a replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. Titanium is used for the implants since it is the most biocompatible with the human body.
It is a surgical positioning of the metal posts or frames into the jawbone. For this, an artificial tooth called crown is placed on the extension of the dental implant and then drilled into the jawbone beneath your gums to give you the look of real teeth.
