Dental implants are anchors that will be implanted into the jawbone to hold replacement teeth where they need to be. As we attached the implant root, which is in the jawbone beneath the gum, and the visible tooth or crown. So how do you know if you’re a candidate for dental implants?
- If you have lost one or more teeth, cannot chew, or smile comfortably, you could be a candidate for dental implants.
- If you are unhappy with your dentures, you are possibly a candidate for dental implants.
After receiving a dental implant, you must follow excellent oral hygiene, which includes brushing, flossing, and regular dental examinations. If you’re a patient with a high risk of developing periodontal or gum diseases, such as a smoker or diabetic, may not be good candidates for dental implants.
As we replace some of your tooth roots with implant-supported full bridges, your bones are better preserved. In the case of conventional dentures, the bone that previously supported the tooth roots begins to resorb, or in other words, deteriorate. With the addition of dental implants integrated into your jawbone, it helps keep the bone healthy and intact.
Some of the benefits of dental implants are:
- They look like natural teeth.
- They are long-lasting.
- Easier to maintain in comparison to conventional dentures.
