What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants themselves are small titanium posts that are placed below your gumline and into your jawbone. Due to their biocompatible abilities, they naturally fuse with your bone through a process called osseointegration. This allows them to replace the missing root structure of your teeth, providing a more stable and secure base for your new restorations.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Unlike traditional restorations, dental implants restore the entire structure of missing teeth, allowing them to offer a number of unique advantages, including:
- Restoring the entire tooth structure makes your replacement teeth look and feel completely natural.
- They have the ability to last 35+ years with proper maintenance and routine appointments.
- Implants have a success rate of 98 percent.
- Just like your natural teeth, implants are easy to care for, only requiring regular brushing, flossing and checkups.
- Due to their supreme stability,dental implants offer enhanced eating and speaking abilities.
- Implant restorations don’t require any alteration of your natural, healthy teeth.
Are Dental Implants Right for You?
The best way to learn whether dental implants are the right restorative treatment for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Alford. During your visit, he’ll examine your mouth and develop a customized treatment plan that will explain how the process will work.
Missing Single Tooth
If you’re missing a single tooth, one dental implant will be placed in the space in your mouth below the gums. Following that, a small, metal connector piece called an abutment will be attached to secure a customized dental crown in place.
Missing Multiple Teeth
Instead of getting a traditional bridge that relies on support from your existing teeth, a bridge or partial denture can be secured to two or more implants. This means that your natural, healthy teeth won’t need to be altered, and your restoration will have more support and enhanced stability.
