Looking and feeling younger has been an eternal quest for the human race. Science is ever advancing to keep us feeling and looking younger but did you know a full healthy smile can have a similar effect? Replacing lost teeth is more than just a cosmetic fix. Having a full smile can give you a youthful appearance as well as increased confidence.

Are Dental Implants Right For Me?

Dental implants are an ideal option for people with generally good oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, trauma, or any other reason. Dental implants are actually more conservative than traditional crowns and bridges, since dental implants do not remove healthy teeth structure or rely on adjacent teeth for support.

Sufficient bone is necessary to support the dental implants, and the best candidates for dental implants have healthy gum tissues that are periodontal disease free. Once dental implants are placed they are intimately connected with the underlying bone and gum tissues in the mouth. Maintaining proper dental hygiene is necessary for the long term success of dental implants. With technique and material advancements, dental bone grafts are now more successful than ever and can be used to augment your natural bone. Be honest with your dentist regarding health issues or anything that could ultimately affect the success of the procedure. There is an increased risk of failure in patients who smoke. For this reason, dental implants are frequently placed only after a patient has stopped smoking.

Dental implant success is related to surgeon’s skill, quality and quantity of the bone available at the site, and the patient’s dental hygiene maintenance. Failure of dental implants is usually due to the failure of the implant to osseointegrate (fuse with bone) correctly, or vice-versa. Dental Implants considered failures if it is lost, mobile or shows marked bone loss around the implant. Dental implants are not susceptible to tooth decay but they can develop a condition called Peri-implantitis. This is an inflammatory condition of the gingival tissue and/or bone around the implant which may result in bone loss and eventual loss of the implant. It is usually associated with chronic infection. Peri-implantitis is more likely to occur in heavy smokers, patients with diabetes, patients with poor dental hygiene and cases where the gingival tissue around the implant is thin.

More rarely, dental implants may fail because of poor surgical placement, not having enough bone healing prior to restoring with a crown or may be overloaded initially, causing failure to integrate. If smoking and positioning problems exist prior to implant surgery, dentists may often recommend to patients that implants may not be the best option.Then they will recommend a bridge or a partial denture to replace the missing tooth.

Once restored, dental implants are very natural looking and the patient will not feel any difference after it is healed. You may even forget you ever lost a tooth in the first place. A person’s self esteem is definitely affected by his/her smile. Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. Maybe your dentures don’t feel secure. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing. If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, there is good news! Dental implants are teeth that can look and feel just like your own! Under the right conditions dental implants can maintain your smile for a lifetime. Long-term studies continue to show improving success rates for dental implants.

Dental Implants And Their Benefits

Dental Implants have the ability to provide the following benefits to make you look and feel younger:

-Dental Implants Feel Natural. They look and feel just like your own teeth.

-Cosmetics. Dental implants have the ability to restore a lost smile making you more attractive to others.

-Similar Dental Hygiene Maintenance As Natural Teeth. Not only do they feel comfortable but they are maintained just like our natural teeth. This includes brushing, flossing, and regular visits to the dentist for professional cleanings.

-Restored Chewing Ability. Dental implants allow you to chew all your favorite foods without pain/discomfort or fear.

-Improved Communication. With a full complement of teeth your speech will be improved.

-Conservative Treatment. Any surgery is rarely considered conservative but in this case it is. Dental implants preserve natural tooth tissue by avoiding the need to cut down adjacent teeth for conventional bridgework.

-Preserving Bone. When teeth are lost, the bone in the jaws remodels and shrinks. When dental implants are in place the bone levels stay where they should maintaining a healthy bone structure in the face and jaws.

-No Tooth Decay. Dental implants are not susceptible to tooth decay.

-Increased Confidence and Self-Esteem. With a renewed smile, you will feel better about yourself and confident in knowing you can smile fully.

Dental Implants Conclusion

If you have lost your teeth due to aging, an accident or some other dental problem, be aware there is a solution to restore your smile to its youthful appearance. Dental implants can make you feel and look younger again. A healthy smile exudes confidence and optimism, and is the focal point of many conversations. Don’t you owe it to yourself to show the world the best side of you.
