What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant replaces the tooth root and is completed with a crown that will look and function like a natural tooth. A dental implant is a small post, usually made of titanium, that functions as a tooth root and is inserted into the jawbone beneath the gum line. The dental implant serves as a foundation to which your periodontist can affix a replacement tooth. Once the procedure is complete, the implant is not visible, and the replaced tooth blends in naturally with your other teeth.
Will I feel pain during the procedure? How long is the recovery process?
Patients experience absolutely no pain during the procedure. The recovery process is very simple, and patients might experience mild post-op pain. Tenderness and/or soreness of the jaw and gum tissue in some patients is normal but will alleviate within a week.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are one of the most popular appliances currently available to individuals suffering from missing teeth. Many people choose them over other options because of their cosmetic and restorative benefits.
When applied properly, a dental implant is completely undetectable to the average individual. The appliance is colored and shaped to match your existing teeth, and it can complete a smile without anyone noticing you had work done on your teeth. The primary benefits people then experience is having a full, healthy-looking smile, even after experiencing a physical accident and permanent tooth loss.
Besides the cosmetics, there are actually many restorative health benefits to having an implant. When someone is missing teeth, it can lead to major complications like jawbone thinning, shifting teeth, and a higher propensity for gum disease and tooth decay.
Once an implant is put in place, it can lead to much better oral health and wellness. The implant stimulates the jaw, so it has less chance of thinning, and the teeth will be kept in place by having the implant near them. For individuals who struggle with gum disease and tooth decay, having the implant can make it easier to keep the smile clean since there is no gap for plaque to accumulate.
