What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the best natural-looking tooth alternatives available. They consist of a titanium post that is implanted into the jaw bone - just like an artificial root. This post will fuse together with the bone. Once it does, an abutment will be added to it so that it can become the anchor for the dental crown. When it is all healed, the new tooth looks and functions just like the real thing.

Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth or multiple, non-adjacent teeth. Thanks to further advancements in implant dentistry, dental bridges and dentures can now be created using dental implants for support.

Whether you need one tooth replaced or an entire mouth of teeth, you can enjoy the benefits that come with dental implants.

Benefits of Dental Implants

So, just what are the benefits of dental implants? They are the ideal option for those with missing teeth because implants:

  • Prevent bone loss in areas with missing teeth.
  • Function like a regular tooth.
  • Offer support to surrounding teeth.
  • Help maintain bite force.
  • Are a long-lasting solution.
  • Can be simple to care for.
  • Match the color of surrounding teeth.
  • Can’t succumb to cavities or further tooth decay.

Are You a Good Candidate for Implants?

Many people every day invest in dental implants. How do you know if you are a good candidate? Well, while they are a great solution for most, they aren’t a feasible option for everyone. To reap the benefits, you will need to have:

  • Healthy gum tissues - and no periodontal disease
  • Healthy, dense jaw bone
  • Good oral hygiene habits and overall oral health.
  • A sense of good health.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do dental implants feel like real teeth?

Physically speaking, yes - dental implants look and feel like the real thing.

Is bone grafting always necessary?

No. Your jaw bone needs to be able to support the implant. If your dentist feels as though yours will need a little extra help doing so, then a bone graft may be necessary.

Do dental implants hurt?

No, it does not hurt to get dental implants. Local anesthesia will be used during the process. Afterward, you may experience temporary, minor discomfort that can easily be treated with an over-the-counter pain reliever.

How can full arch dental implants rejuvenate your smile and improve your quality of life?

Full arch dental implants have the ability to rejuvenate your smile and significantly improve your quality of life. When you have multiple missing or failing teeth, it can be quite challenging and have negative impacts on various aspects of your daily life.

One of the main benefits of opting for full arch dental implants is that they provide a permanent solution to restore your entire mouth. Unlike dentures, which can be uncomfortable and require regular maintenance, dental implants offer a durable and long-lasting option. With full arch implants, you can regain the ability to eat a wider variety of foods, as your diet is no longer restricted to soft or easy-to-chew foods. This allows you to enjoy a more varied and nutritious diet, resulting in improved overall health.

Speaking can become troublesome when you have missing teeth, affecting your ability to communicate clearly. Full arch dental implants help restore your ability to speak with confidence and clarity, as they function and feel like natural teeth. This can greatly enhance your social interactions and professional life.

In addition to the functional benefits, full arch dental implants also have a positive impact on your appearance. Missing or failing teeth can make you look older than you actually are, as they can cause your jawline and facial features to deteriorate. However, dental implants restore the natural shape of your face and provide a more youthful appearance.

The process of getting full arch dental implants is streamlined and efficient. With advanced techniques like the Pro Arch solution, only four to six implants are typically needed to replace an entire arch of teeth. This not only reduces the amount of surgery involved but also minimizes the overall cost of the procedure. The surgery itself is often brief and virtually pain-free, as you will be sedated throughout to ensure your comfort.

Once the implants are placed, you will be fitted with a natural and fully functional provisional set of teeth, giving you immediate results and the ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently. After the implants have healed, a permanent set of high-quality teeth, virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth, will be fitted by your general dentist.

By restoring your entire mouth, full arch dental implants provide security within the jaw for a strong and stable bite. They offer permanence, allowing you to maintain your new smile with proper oral care. With their natural look, feel, and function, dental implants boost self-confidence and give you a rejuvenated smile that can positively impact your overall quality of life.
