What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental implants offer a number of benefits. For example, implants can help prevent the steady deterioration of the jaw (sometimes known as a sunken jaw) that happens when you have missing teeth. Implants help reverse this damage by making the jaw firm and healthy as it naturally becomes accustomed to the new teeth in place.

Are Dental Implants Difficult to Maintain?

Implants are incredibly durable. You can eat anything that you would eat with natural teeth. Your list of snacks can now include all the crunchy nuts, popcorn, and other items you’ve been denying yourself.

You also don’t have to worry about staining your implants with coffee, tea, wine, or other strong beverages. Implants are more stain-resistant than natural teeth. So as long as you are taking reasonably good care of the appearance of your remaining natural teeth, your implants will also be fine.

Speaking of cleaning, unlike with dentures, implants aren’t removed in order to be cleaned. That means that you don’t have to spend money on special cleansers or adhesives.

Dental implants are also so reliable that they can last a lifetime. Once installed, they remain firmly in place. You won’t suffer the slipping and clicking that sometimes happens with dentures.

Is it Too Late for Me to Get Dental Implants?

Implants are suitable for a wide range of ages. In general, the patient needs to be old enough to have a mature jawline. In other words, the patient has reached the point where the jawline is not expected to continue growing and developing.

On the other hand, there’s no maximum age for implants. If you’re past retirement age, don’t think that it’s too late for you to get implants.

How Are Dental Implants Installed?

Dental implants are permanently placed in the jaw and consist of a post, an abutment, and a crown. The dentist implants the post in the jaw where the tooth will be placed. The post serves as an artificial root for your new tooth. Just as the natural tooth that is no longer there had a strong root system holding it in place, so does the implant. The post anchors the tooth to the site for a lifetime of use.

The abutment fits atop the post just below the jawline. It’s the connector that will hold the new tooth to the post.

The crown is simply another name for the replacement tooth. The dentist will customize the new tooth to fit comfortably. It will look as if it has always been there because its shape and color will match the rest of your teeth. If you don’t tell people that you have implants, it’s doubtful that anyone will ever guess.

The dentist can use implant technology to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or even all your teeth. Regardless of the number of teeth you have replaced, the dentist will complete the procedure in stages. It’s important to allow time between each stage to allow the jaw to heal and prepare itself for the next step.

When Might Dental Implants Not Be Possible?

It’s best to replace missing teeth immediately. Of course, this is not always possible. Some people are forced to go years with missing teeth. During that time, their jawbone has become thinner. In such cases, it’s possible that there isn’t enough jawbone to currently support implants.

However, there’s still hope. Your dentists may determine that you’re a good candidate for a surgical procedure that will increase the mass of the jawbone. In time, the jawbone will gain enough new bone mass to be able to support new teeth. Then the dentist can proceed normally with installing implants.
