Losing one or more teeth can have a significant impact on your quality of life. It can affect your smile, your ability to chew and even change how you look.
If you’re looking for a permanent solution to missing teeth, dental implant restoration may be the answer. With implant restorations, you no longer have to suffer the effects of missing teeth due to aging, periodontal disease, decay or an accident. You can regain the beautiful smile you once had and feel more confident about yourself.
Facts About Dental Implant Restorations
1. Implants are durable and long-lasting. The implant will fuse to your jawbone so they won’t become loose even after many years of use. In fact, if properly maintained, it can last a lifetime.
2. Implants look and feel very natural. Unlike dentures, implants are anchored and fused to the bone. Over time, you will even forget that they are there. In addition, they are also designed to mimic the look of your natural teeth so no one will ever know you’re using restorations.
3. Implants are the healthy solution to teeth loss. There’s no need to reduce the structure of neighboring teeth so an implant doesn’t damage healthy teeth.
With dental implants, you will have a better-looking and more confident smile, and more importantly, you’ll be able to chew your food properly and utter your words clearly.
During the procedure, the dentist will make an incision on the affected site and insert the implant inside where it will fuse with the jawbone. This process takes 2-6 months, after which the implant will replace the old root and serve as an anchor for the dental crown/artificial tooth.
Then, your replacement tooth will be designed, shaped and measured. Once it is ready, you will be scheduled for an appointment so that the new tooth can be attached to the implant.
You will be able to chew and speak normally after the procedure is done. For those who are missing several teeth, your dentist will recommend an implant supported bridge.
