The main advantage of dental implants is that they offer long-term stability and support for your teeth. This is because dental implants are made from different types of materials and are anchored into your jawbone with pins or screws.
Who can and should get Dental Implants?
A root canal or extraction is the most common treatment for tooth loss, but these procedures can be quite painful and expensive.
Painless Dental Implants are a much more permanent solution and can provide lasting dental restoration.
If you are considering dental implants, here are some things to know:
1. You must have lost at least one tooth in the upper or lower jawbone in order to qualify for dental implants. If you have lost teeth due to decay or trauma, your dentist may be able to place temporary dental crowns on your healthy teeth in order to assess your eligibility for implants.
2. Dental implants can only be placed in dentin – the hard inner layer of teeth – which gives them their strong and long-lasting foundation. If you have any other dental problems, such as cavities or periodontal disease, your dentist may not be able to place dental implants in an effective and stable manner.
Types of dental implants
There are two main types of dental implants:
1. Fixed implant bridges- This is made out of one piece of material and is permanently placed in your jawbone. They are shaped like a bridge, but they cannot move.
2.Adjustable implant bridges-This is a metal frame that can be adjusted from one jawbone to another. This allows you to customize the comfort level for you and helps keep your mouth healthy.
