What are Dental Implants?Dental implants are an artificial tooth that is placed within your jaw by a periodontist. They are put into place as a way of holding in a bridge or replacement tooth. Someone who has lost a tooth due to an injury or periodontal disease is an ideal candidate for a dental implant. Even though they are pretty high-tech by design, a dental implant is looked at as a way to be able to save more of your teeth than having bridgework done. The implant will look and feel like a natural tooth; you may even forget that you have an implant in your mouth. It may be that you are hiding your smile because you don’t want anyone to see your missing teeth, and dentures are just not an option for you. If you are missing any teeth and you want to be able to smile again, there is excellent news for you. At Sasan Ahmmadiyar we will help you have teeth that look and feel just like your own. When given the proper maintenance, you will have implants that will last a lifetime.
What Dental Implants Can Do?Dental implants can help replace one or more teeth without causing any problems with your surrounding teeth. They will also help to support a bridge to prevent the need for partial dentures. Implants also give your dentures support to make them more comfortable.
What are Some Advantages of a Dental Implant Over a Bridge?
- Aesthetic - They will look and feel just like your real teeth without you having to worry about any bone loss or gum recession. No one will be able to tell the difference between your real teeth.
- Tooth-saving - Since none of your other teeth are touched for the implants, you will have more long-term benefits for your oral health.
- Confidence - The implant will be secure enough to give you the freedom to be able to smile and speak freely.
- Reliable - They are one of the best options for replacing your teeth.
Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?The perfect candidate for a dental implant is someone who is in good overall health. You need to have healthy gum tissue to be able to support the implant. Dental implants in Virginia are connected closely with your gum tissues and underlying bones within your mouth. Peridontists are the ones who will be an intricate part of your dental implant team because they specialize in these areas. They are equipped with all of the training and knowledge that you will need to have teeth that look and feel as if they were your own.
What Is Treatment Like?Your peridontist and dentist will work together with you to help determine how your implant is going to be positioned and what the appropriate course of action is. If you are replacing a single tooth, a crown and an implant may be able to do the trick for you. An implant is going to replace the tooth that was lost and its root. However, if you need to replace multiple teeth that were lost, you are probably going to end up with an implant-supported bridge to replace all of them. There is also the option of replacing all of your teeth with a full set of dentures. The upper jaw is one of the more complex places to put in an implant due to lower levels of bone density. However, this can easily be corrected by raising the sinus floor and developing extra bone to be able to place the implants successfully. Ridge modification helps to build upon the bone in your mouth to create a more stable environment for the implants to go, which helps them to last for a lifetime.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?Your own teeth are going to require a lot of at-home care and regular visits to your dentist. Since a dental implant is just like your own teeth, you are going to need to care for them in the exact same manner. If you are going to keep your implant clean and free of plaque, you are going to need to brush and floss on a regular basis. You will have regular visits to make sure that your teeth and gums remain in perfect condition after the implant.
