What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants act as a permanent and reliable foundation for dental appliances including prosthetic teeth and implant-supported dentures. These small titanium posts are surgically inserted into the gums and, through a process called osseointegration, fuse to the jawbone to provide continuous stability.
What are dental implants used for?
Implants are primarily used for filling gaps left by missing teeth. A single implant can be placed to restore the look and function of a single missing tooth, or several implants can be placed to fill multiple gaps. Implants are also used for implant-supported dentures, in which case the implant provides a more stable and permanent fit compared to removable dentures.
Are implant treatments noticeable?
Implants are placed below the gum line and prosthetic tooth attached to the top. Prosthetic teeth are custom-made to provide natural-looking solutions. Aesthetic Dental Group looks at your neighboring natural teeth and creates a prosthetic with the color and size to fit seamlessly into your unique smile.
What are the benefits of implant treatment?
There are many benefits to using implants to restore your smile, including:
Improved oral health
Greater ease with chewing, speaking, and smiling
A natural-looking, complete smile
Simple care and maintenance
Facial support to prevent sagging skin
How are dental implants placed?
There is no one-size-fits-all formula for implant placement because each patient will have different health and aesthetic needs or goals. The exact method of placement will depend on the type of implant used, the number of implants required, and the type of treatment required.
If you are suffering from an oral health problem such as gum disease or failing teeth, before implants can be placed, treatments such as the elimination of infection or removal of failing teeth will be used to ensure your health and safety.
