People with missing teeth have different options to replace them - one being dental implants. Before you choose implants, you need to know what to expect. Foremost, it is essential to understand what dental implants are and how they are different from other restorations. These oral prosthetics are inserted into the jaw where they fuse with the bone tissue via osseointegration. Patients receiving dental implants should be healthy enough and have sufficient bone to support the screws. A periodontist can use dental implants in various ways to replace teeth.
If you have one or just a few missing teeth, you may be better off receiving an implant for every tooth. Dental implants fitted with crowns offer a solution close to natural teeth. You don't have to do any specialized cleaning other than the usual brushing and flossing.
Patients with multiple missing teeth close to each other can choose implant bridges. A periodontist installs implants at the ends of the empty space before fitting them with crowns that serve as the base for pontics. When an implant is supported with a dental bridge, it helps prevent the need for removing enamel from healthy teeth to make an abutment surface for the bridge.
Implant Supported Dentures
For individuals who have lost a majority of their real teeth, they can opt for implant-supported dentures. Dentures offer an affordable choice for people who have few or no teeth. Although dentures look more natural, they are known for having poor stability. A periodontist can use implants to support the dentures, making them stable within the mouth once you wear them. So you don't have to bother about the dentures falling out while eating or speaking. Additionally, securing dentures to implants helps prevent the sores that arise when dentures move around within the mouth. Your implant-supported dentures may either be fixed or removable.
