Teeth Or Dental Implants
If you have lost several or even a single tooth, you have several options. Dentures have long been a possibility. A bridge is also a potential replacement for lost teeth. Yet, one of the more common procedures is teeth implants.
What Are Teeth Implants?
Another term for teeth implants is dental implant. This form of cosmetic dental surgery is called an endosseous implant or fixture. It is basically the replacement of your broken, damaged, rotten, misshapen and/or lost tooth by an artificial one.
What Is the Procedure?
The dental procedure to replace the tooth begins with an analysis of the current situation. The dentist examines the tooth, takes and X-rays of it and then determines whether if what remains is capable of supporting the structure for teeth implants. The process involves a dental surgeon and his or her team.
* They will first prepare the mouth
* The next major move is to insert small titanium or titanium alloy posts into your jawbone where they will act as anchors, filling in as the root of your tooth
* Finally, the, the dentists will attach the artificial tooth or, in some cases, a bridge or even dentures
These are the basic procedures. However, not everyone is a good candidate for teeth implants.
Preferring Teeth Implants
Dentures or bridges have long been in common use to replace lost or damaged teeth. Yet, in some cases, many dentists recommend dental or teeth implants instead. Your dentist may suggest implants may be more effective in any of the following instances:
* You want to replace a single tooth without negatively affecting the teeth close by
* If you don’t want or a dentist decided that it would be more effective than partial denture
* You decide you want a bridge and the dentist knows an implant will provide better support
* You do require dentures but by using dental implants, you can achieve a more natural look and a more effective
However, dentists will not recommend it if you have cancer, are facing radiation of the jaw or are currently characterized by rampant diabetes or gum disease.
Dental teeth implants do provide a solution in several cases. Talk to your dentist about whether you are a good candidate. If he or she agrees, run with it. The result will provide you with a brilliant, natural looking smile.
