Are Dental Implants for Me?

Dental Implants

Nearly 70 percent of adults between the ages of 35 and 44 have lost one or more permanent teeth due to an accident, gum disease, or tooth decay. Even more alarming is the loss that occurs among older adults—by the age of 74, more than 25 percent of adults will have lost all their teeth. Statistics like these suggest there is a strong need for a viable, permanent solution to missing teeth that offer the same look, feel, and function of natural teeth. For more than 25 years, the dental care industry has advanced the technology of dental implants, delivering adults safe, effective replacements for missing teeth that support both form and function of the tooth, jaw line, and facial structure.

Dental implants are artificial structures designed to perfectly replicate a natural tooth. Implants can provide support for dentures or partials or as a stand-alone replacement for an individual tooth. Unlike dentures and partials, dental implants protect the loss of the jawbone that typically occurs when teeth are lost. This makes dental implants ideal for protecting the shape and density of the jawbone as time passes.

Dental implants are made from titanium alloys that are biocompatible—meaning they won’t be rejected by the body. Over time, the implant integrates with the bone of the jaw, further improving stability and function of the tooth.

There are a variety of reasons that dental implants may be the most suitable option for you. Whether you have experienced tooth loss due to an accident or disease, dental implants can be an effective solution. Ideal candidates for dental implants are in good physical health and have generally good oral health, as well. Certain medications and chronic disease may inhibit the long-term success of the procedure. It is important to consider all your options, including dental implants cost, and discuss what will work best for your particular situation with your dental care professional.

Following the loss or removal of your tooth, your dental care professional will implant an anchor and post in your jawbone. The anchor acts as the root of the tooth and is the point from which the root extends and the new tooth is attached. Over the course of three to six months, your dentist will monitor the growth of the bone around the anchor. Once the anchor is appropriately integrated, your dentist will cement the crown, or artificial tooth, into place.

After surgery, your dental care specialist will provide you with detailed instructions for caring for your new implants. These may include eating only soft foods for a specified period of time and taking medications to minimize pain and discomfort.

Implants are permanent fixtures and do not require the additional care associated with dentures and partials. However, just like your natural teeth, routine flossing and brushing are imperative to lifelong maintenance. Disease may still occur if bacteria build-up occurs on implants.
