What Are Dental Implants

ABOUT DENTAL IMPLANTS?

It is important for everyone to take care of their oral health. There are numerous oral health problems that might arise over the course of time. One of the most common issues that people face involves missing teeth. Some people are missing teeth from birth. Other people might experience traumatic events that cause them to lose their teeth abruptly. Some individuals might even develop oral health diseases that could cause them to lose their teeth over the course of time.
When people are missing their teeth, this can be a major quality-of-life issue. Missing teeth can make it hard to chew, speak, and eat. Even though some people reach for dentures or bridges to help them replace missing teeth, there is a better option available. This comes in the form of dental implants. It is important for everyone to know what a dental implant is and how a dental implant could help them improve their oral health. There are a few important points to keep in mind.

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Dental implants are artificial teeth that provide a permanent replacement tooth for missing teeth. The implant itself is an artificial rod that is meant to replace the root of the missing tooth. Then, there is a permanent base that is screwed on top of the rod. When compared to bridges, dentures, and crowns, a dental implant is a popular and more effective long-term solution for anyone who is missing one or more teeth. Because they feel, fit, and function just like natural teeth, these dental implants are rapidly becoming a first-line treatment option for missing teeth. 

The biggest reason why dental implants are so secure and comfortable is that they take advantage of medical-grade titanium. Similar to other replacement medical products, this metal implant is incredibly strong. Over time, the titanium rod will actually fuse to the living bones that are present in the cells of the jaw. As a result, this union leads to a durable, strong anchor that is going to work great for new teeth.

Second, there is no need to worry about movement, slippage, or other problems. Even though bridges might crack and fall apart when someone bites into an apple, this is not a problem with a dental implant. Furthermore, there is no friction or slippage that people have to worry about with dentures. As a rule, dental implants provide individuals with access to the same diet as their native teeth. There is no need for people to worry about smiling or eating with caution

DENTAL IMPLANTS PARTS

In general, dental implants are made up of three separate parts. These include:

The Implant Itself: The first part of the dental implant is the rod. The rod acts as the root for the new tooth. The rod is going to be screwed into the jaw and is in place permanently.

The Abutment: The abutment is also meant to be permanent. At the same time, this can be removed by a trained oral surgeon if required. The abutment acts as a connector. It holds a tooth to the rod. The abutment is made out of a strong, durable material that will not break while eating

The Crown: The crown is the visible part of the implant. The crown acts as a prosthetic tooth. This is the part that individuals will be able to see when they smile and look in the mirror. This crown is usually made out of porcelain or zirconium. It is designed to be durable and aesthetically pleasing. 

It is important to note that these dental implants can be used to replace either a single tooth or multiple teeth. In some cases, people might even use dental implants to replace an entire set of teeth. These are all decisions that should be made in consultation with an oral health professional. The nice part about dental implants is that they can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual. People can even shade a dental implant to match the rest of their teeth. In many cases, people actually invest in a teeth whitening procedure before a dental implant is put in place. 

TYPES OF DENTAL IMPLANTS?

SINGLE TOOTH DENTAL IMPLANT?
A Single Dental Implant: A single dental implant is arguably the most common type of dental implant that people get. There are several reasons why people might need to get a single dental implant. For example, some people might have a tooth knocked out while playing sports. Other people might be missing you from birth. Regardless, a dental implant can be used to replace a single tooth no matter where it is located in the mouth.
MULTIPLE DENTAL IMPLANTS
Multiple Implants: In some cases, people might be missing more than one tooth. As long as becomes are still healthy and the surrounding teeth are intact, multiple dental implants could be the best solution. Two fixtures are implanted in a crown is attached. The other natural teeth are less intact. Multiple dental implants are not for everyone, so it is important to discuss this potential option with a trained oral health professional.

FULL MOUTH DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Full Mouth Dental Implants: Finally, dental implants can also be used to replace an entire set of upper or lower teeth. Full mouth dental implants provide this option and they are usually placed by a trained oral health surgeon. There are usually four implants that are placed in the mouth and then an arch of full teeth is attached to these implants. Again, this option is also not for everyone so this is something that should be discussed with a trained oral health professional.

HOW ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS PLACED?

The exact method of how dental implants are placed in the mouth is going to vary with the treatment type. At the same time, there are a few common steps that everyone should note.
First, someone who is interested in dental implants will meet with a trained health professional. At this visit, a trained dentist or surgeon will take a look at the mouth and examine the missing tooth. It will be important to make sure there is a gap that is large enough for a dental implant to be placed. For this reason, many people who are interested in getting a dental implant will have to wear braces for a little while to open the gap wide enough for the dental implant placement. At the same time, these braces will be used to straighten all of the other teeth so that when the implant goes into place, the smile is straight.
Once the gap is wide enough, a dentist will take a look at the overall health of the mouth to make sure there is a strong enough base for the rod. X-rays might be taken of the jaw to ensure the jaw is thick enough to host a dental implant. In addition, the dentist will also take a look at the health of the gum tissue to make sure the gums will be able to support the implant as a whole. In some cases, bone grafting procedures might be required to strengthen the jaw.
Next, a trained oral health surgeon will place the rod in the jaw. He or she will use a delicate tool to unroof the gum tissue and reveal the jaw bone. Then, the rod will be placed. Once the rod is in place, the gum tissue will be taken and grafted around the rod to ensure it has enough support.
It will take a while for the rod to fuse to the rest of the mouth. Once the rod is in place, the abutment and crown will be added. Patients will have the opportunity to take a look at options for the crown and make sure that it matches the rest of their teeth. Finally, the crown will be screwed on top of the abutment and the entire implant will heal within about a week or two.
There will be several follow-up visits during this entire process to make sure every step received without issue. Usually, this procedure requires only local anesthesia; however, other options are available for those who need it. It is important for patients to work with a trained oral health professional every step of the way. When performing correctly, dental implants represent a strong, effective treatment option for individuals who are missing teeth. Anyone who is interested in learning more about this treatment option should speak with a trained oral health professional.
