Dental implants feel and function like natural teeth and are a permanent solution to improve oral health. Patients who have not had success with dentures could be great candidates for dental implants. Learn more about the dental implant options available and how to secure a permanent smile.
Dental Implants are in Demand
The demand for dental implants is increasing globally due to a rising interest in cosmetic dentistry and permanent oral healthcare solutions for an increased aging population. Dental implant procedures are now more accessible and affordable than ever before, thanks to groundbreaking innovations with computer-aided technology helping to simplify tooth restoration services. GlobeNewswire reports sedation dentistry options paired with various technological advancements including computer-aided design (CAD), 3D imaging, laser dentistry, and nanotechnology are simplifying dental implant procedures and reducing the time spent to carry out comforting, customized tooth restoration services.
Dental Implant Benefits
When compared to dentures, bridges, and crowns, dental implants are an effective long-term solution for chronic dental issues and missing or failing teeth. Dental implants are a tooth replacement solution created to last. They do not decay or require root canals and are built to preserve the integrity of existing teeth. Dental implants slow the shrinkage of bone and gum tissue from missing tooth areas. Better yet, they offer an easy cleaning surface with the feel and function of natural teeth.
Dental Implant Solutions
There are a variety of dental implant solutions available, customized to each patient’s individual needs, including:
- Single-Tooth Implants: If you have lost a single tooth due to an accident or from periodontal disease, one tooth can be replaced using a dental implant.
- Multiple Implants: Occasionally a patient is missing more than one tooth, but still has healthy gums and surrounding teeth, and a multiple implant is the best solution. Two fixtures are implanted and the crown is attached, leaving other natural teeth intact.
- All-On-Four Implants: Patients who need to replace a full upper and/or lower set of teeth can now receive all-on-four implants. During the procedure, the 4 implants are placed by an oral surgeon, then attach as a full arch of teeth.
Following dental implant restoration, it is very important to care for dental implants just as you would your natural teeth, through a daily oral hygiene routine and routine dental appointments for dental implant care.
