No one likes having missing teeth. You know how aggravating it can be to feel uncomfortable with your smile and unable to bite or chew properly. There are other problems as well, including a loss of bone in your jaw. This can cause your teeth to the crowd and also make you look prematurely aged.
Dentists prefer dental implants as the best solution for missing teeth. This is because implants are the only dental prosthetics that will look and feel exactly like your own teeth. Virtually anyone can have dental implants, although some medical conditions (cancer and uncontrolled diabetes) may make their installation problematic.
Dental Implants Explained
A dental implant is a titanium screw that your dentist places in your jawbone. Once the bone has healed and grown around the implant, the dentist will top the implant with a crown or series of crowns.
At Redford Dental Care, we prefer the “All on 4” implants. This is because all you need to have is a full set of upper or lower teeth installed is just four implants in either jaw. With conventional implants, you could need up to eight. So, with All on 4, the procedure takes less time, you recover more quickly and you incur fewer costs. Patients often find the reduced cost to be one of the most important factors because dental insurance will not generally cover the cost of dental implants.
We also offer implant supported dentures, which attach to dental implants instead of resting on the jaw. These are most commonly used on the lower jaw, where it can be more difficult to get dentures to fit well, than on the upper jaw where the denture fit is not often an issue.
The Benefits of Implants
You may be wondering why you should consider dental implants over dentures or bridgework. The main reason goes back to the bone loss you can experience when you lose your teeth. Dentures and bridgework will give you back your appearance and restore functionality to your mouth, but they will do nothing to retard the bone loss. Dental implants, on the other hand, encourage bone growth in your jaw. This means that you do not have to worry about the prematurely aged appearance that can occur as your face begins to sag.
Even the best dentures will never feel like your natural teeth, but implants will. Also, because implants are part of the permanent structure of your mouth, you never have to worry about them sliding or slipping, and you can eat whatever you want with confidence – if you want to, you can even enjoy chewing a gum.
Are Dental Implants Safe?
People hold a belief that dental implants are not safe, but it is not true. At Redford Dental Care, we use titanium because of its chemical property of osseointegration. This allows in bonding the living tissues of gums. The wide acceptability and use of titanium alloy in surgeries provide a guarantee for the safety of dental implants.
Do Dental Implants Hurt?
Screwing and drilling while the fixation of dental implants in the mouth of patients may create fear in patients. Dental implants cause a little pain for a brief period. Due to the availability of experienced dentists at Redford Dental Care, you will not feel such pain during the dental implant process. Dental implants cause a flow of minimal blood, which is natural and bearable. After surgery, we prescribe you medicines and a liquid diet, which lessens the pain and bleeding.
We consider it our primary responsibility to make sure you have a negligible level of pain during the treatment. Along with this, your cooperation and care are equally fundamental. We recommend you eat only soft foods for 2 weeks. After this period, you are free to eat whatever you want.
Caring for Dental Implants
To take care of your dental implants just do what you have been accustomed to doing (assuming, of course, that you have developed the habit of looking after your oral health). Make sure to brush at least twice a day, floss daily and see Dr. Redford or Dr. Davey for a checkup twice a year. Get professional cleanings as well. Properly cared for, your dental implants will be a permanent solution to your missing teeth.
