In this first offering, we will introduce you to dental implants, the placement process, and the many benefits of this amazing tooth replacement treatment.
The science behind dental implants is based on how artificial titanium roots fuse with the natural material of a patient’s jaw. After the are directly implanted into the jawbone, new tissues thread themselves through tiny holes in the fixture to hold the titanium root permanently in place. This process is called osseointegration, and provides a strong foundation for your replacement tooth. With correct dental hygiene and visits to your dentist, your dental implants can last a lifetime.
Your dental implant procedure will typically be completed in four steps. 1) consultation, 2) implanting the fixture, 3) attaching the abutment, and 4) installing the crown.
Step One: The fist step in restoring your smile with dental implants is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Nelson. During this initial exam, Dr. Nelson will carefully examine your teeth and determine if dental implants are a good tooth replacement option for your needs. Precise measurements of your mouth and teeth will also be taken and you will be encouraged to ask questions about the treatment and recovery.
Step Two: Dr. Nelson will determine the best location for your dental implant, then insert the small titanium fixture. Once the fixture is implanted into the patient’s jawbone, it is allowed to fuse with the bone in a process called osseointegration. The patient is then sent home to heal for three to six months.
Step Three: Once healing is sufficient, an abutment will be attached to the fixture. An abutment is the middle part of your dental implant and acts as a connecting device between the replacement tooth and the fixture in your jawbone. This stage also allows the doctor to use his considerable expertise to begin creating your beautiful new replacement tooth.
Step Four: The last and final step of your dental implant procedure is the attachment of the crown to the abutment. This part of the treatment is very important as Dr. Nelson installs the final product, which perfectly matches your dental implants to your natural teeth.
Here are eight exceptional benefits that dental implants provide:
1) Improve Appearance
Missing teeth can ruin your smile and keep you hiding those unattractive little gaps. When you fill those spaces with dental implants, your smile can once again shine through!
2) Restore Self-Confidence
The appearance of your smile can make a huge difference in your confidence. And, if your smile is less-than-perfect, then your self-confidence can also suffer. Consequently, when you fix your smile, your self-esteem can also dramatically improve.
3) Regain Tooth Function
Dental implants are permanently attached to the jawbone. This means that your teeth are strong and stable. This also means that teeth will not slip, pinch, or move. Ultimately, this means patients can once again eat the foods they love and smile with confidence.
4) Take Years Off Your Smile
When patients are missing teeth, the shape of the face can change, giving patients a sunken facial appearance and premature wrinkles around the mouth. Filling in the empty spaces can give a fuller facial appearance and take years off your smile.
5) Improve Oral Health
Missing or damaged teeth can result in an increased chance of tooth decay and gum disease. Likewise, crowns and bridges involve grinding down the adjacent natural teeth, so they are often damaged or compromised. Dental implants do not require any damage to surrounding teeth so your healthy teeth stay healthy and your smile lasts even longer. And because dental implants restore tooth function, patients can chew normally once more. This means that the jaw muscles can regain proper health and halt resulting jawbone deterioration.
6) Enhance Your Quality Of Life
With dental implants, your smile can be more natural, as well as your tooth function. With dental implants, you will speak better, feel better, and look better. This improves your quality of life by giving you the freedom to do the things you love with comfort and ease!
7) Improve Overall Health
According to researchers, there is a significant link between poor oral health and problems like heart attacks, strokes, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and other chronic health issues. But fixing your poor oral health can also reduce or eliminate these problems
8) Simplify Your Dental Hygiene
Caring for your dental implants is as simple as caring for natural teeth. Patients need only brush and floss regularly and visit a dentist for regular cleanings.
