Dental Implants – The Essential Tooth Replacement

Dental Implants

Have you ever considered what life would be like if you were missing one, some, or all of your teeth? Your teeth serve so many functions: supporting your facial structure, helping to maintain the integrity of your jawbone, impacting your abilities to chew, speak clearly, and show off a beautiful smile. It is an unfortunate fact that nearly 70 percent of adults have lost at least one tooth due to accident or illness, making tooth replacement essential to the quality of life for a large portion of the population. Dental implants are the preferred choice of both patients and dentists for tooth replacements. Dental implants not only repair your smile, but they offer vast benefits to your health and restore optimal function.

Designed to ideally mimic the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth, dental implants are multi-component devices. The implant is comprised of a titanium anchor, which looks like a screw or cylinder and is fitted into the upper or lower jaw through the gum tissue and into the jawbone. This titanium anchor creates a stable base for the crown, which is a porcelain piece designed to replicate the look of the missing tooth or teeth.

Dental implants are a more stable type of tooth replacement than dentures or bridges due to the fixed support within the jawbone. There are no limitations of food consumption and the facial structure is restored and the bones of the jaw protected because full function of the tooth or teeth has been completely repaired. And because they last a lifetime, this makes dental implant costs more reasonable compared to bridges or dentures, which have to be replaced multiple times over the years.

While dental implants are the preferred standard in the industry, the process is extensive and often takes several months. However, the extra treatment time is worth it. Dental implants have a 95 percent success rate, meaning the surgery is low risk.

Some people with certain diseases or conditions may not be candidates for dental implants, or may need to work with their dentist or doctor to stabilize health conditions before proceeding. Those who currently have dentures or bridges may find dental implants to be a preferable alternative. Individuals who smoke can be successfully treated with dental implants; however, tobacco use can impair optimal outcomes. Young children and adolescents are generally not eligible for dental implants, as the jaw must have reached maximum physical maturity before replacement can occur.  Your dentist in Lakewood Ranch can help you determine if you are an ideal candidate for dental implants.

Your dentist can discuss the dental implants cost with you, as well as your options for tooth replacement and will review your medical history before making a recommendation.
