What Is A Dental Implant?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or dental bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

Advantages Of Dental Implants Over Other Methods Of Tooth Replacement

According to WebMD, there are many advantages to dental implants, including:

  • Improved appearance. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
  • Improved speech. With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
  • Improved comfort. Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
  • Easier eating. Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
  • Improved self-esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
  • Improved oral health. Dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
  • Durability. Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
  • Convenience. Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.

Is Everyone Eligible To Receive Dental Implants?

Dental implants have a high success rate over other alternatives; over 98% overall.  A good candidate for dental implants is a patient who has healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implant and is committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits.

Patients who are heavy smokers or suffer from chronic uncontrolled diseases like diabetes, heart issues or have had radiation therapy need to be evaluated to determine if they are good candidates for dental implants.

Florida Smiles Dental will evaluate your eligibility for dental implants. Once they decide you are a good candidate, they will create an individualized treatment plan for you. The plan will address your specific needs and provides coordinated care based on the implant option that is best for you.
