Discovering the Impressive Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental Implants

For patients who have suffered the embarrassment of missing teeth, but who don’t want to wear uncomfortable or ill-fitting dentures and who are reluctant to sacrifice existing tooth structure in order to have a bridge fitted, affordable dental implants may just be an ideal solution. One of the most important dental advances in recent decades, implants can be a terrific method of providing sturdy, durable replacement teeth that feel far more natural than traditional alternatives.

The process of receiving dental implants typically involves three distinct stages. The first of these phases involves surgical placement of the implant post directly into the jawbone by a dental implant dentist. There will be a period of healing that must occur before further steps can be performed, and during this time, the dentist will likely suggest that the patient stick to a soft diet.

The second stage of the implant process is when osseointegration is allowed to occur. This is when the bone that surrounds the implant post heals and grows in a way that grips onto the structure and keeps it steady. The necessary growth can take a significant amount of time, and the duration of this stage varies from patient to patient. In some cases, several months are required for full integration, whereas other cases may be concluded much faster.

Lastly, the dentist will begin the process of putting the artificial tooth or teeth into place. When just a single tooth is being replaced, a custom crown will be fabricated to blend in well with the existing natural teeth. Because these permanent dental implants cannot be made overnight, patients are typically provided with temporary versions to be worn in the meantime.

Patients with missing teeth who enjoy good overall health may be terrific dental implant candidates. However, those suffering from chronic conditions such as leukemia or diabetes may need to explore other options, as those illnesses may compromise the post-surgical healing process. Anyone interested in exploring the many benefits offered by the best dental implants should schedule a consultation with a dental implant dentist in New Baltimore to learn more.
