Transforming a Smile with Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Tooth loss is extremely common in American adults, and a substantial number of people have lost at least one tooth to decay, dental trauma, or periodontal disease by the time they reach middle age. Tooth loss is certainly a cosmetic issue, but it can also be a dental health concern. Replacing missing teeth is essential to continued good dental health.

In the past, fixed dental bridges could be used to replace one tooth or a few teeth while dentures would generally be recommended when most or all of the teeth were missing. However, not all patients were happy with these choices. Dentures tended to pinch and slip, and patients would need to have them adjusted over the years to maintain a comfortable fit. Dental bridges require the alteration of healthy tooth tissue, which can increase the risk of other dental health problems. Dental bridges also may need to be re-bonded or replaced every five to seven years.

Dental implants eliminate these issues because they replace both the root and the crown of the lost teeth and integrate with the jawbone to provide sturdy, lasting support. Two types of dental implants are available, including endosteal implants, which fit directly into the jawbone, and subperiosteal implants, which are placed over the jawbone. The design of the dental implants results in a restoration that feels remarkably like your own natural tooth. The extremely versatile dental implants can be used to support porcelain crowns, bridges, or dentures for a completely customized restoration solution.

The best candidates for dental implants have good general health and good dental health. They have adequate bone tissue to support the implant, and they do not engage in heavy drinking or smoking, which can hinder healing. Patients should also be committed to maintaining good dental care habits after implant placement. A skilled dentist can provide the dental implants cost and help you determine if you are a candidate for the procedure.

Because dental implants are made using biocompatible titanium, the risk of complications is extremely low. However, all surgical procedures carry some risk of complications and may not be right for all patients or situations, so it is important to talk to a dentist in Detroit about your options.
