One of the most important advancements in missing tooth replacement is the invention of the dental implant. While dental implants have technically been around for a long time, in recent years, they have become widely available to just about any patient as a way to replace missing teeth. In fact, in the past, you could only replace a few teeth with dental implants due to how they had to be installed into the mouth. Today, just about anyone can restore an entire mouth full of teeth using dental implants.
Two of the biggest benefits of getting dental implants are that they are permanent, meaning you’ll never have to worry about replacing them, and they are stronger and more durable than natural teeth. This means you’ll be able to eat all the foods you love without worrying about denture adhesive or breaking a tooth.
Getting dental implants is a slow process that is well worth it for most patients. The process begins, like most, with an examination by the dentist. The Niagara Falls dentist looks to see if there are any health issues and if any teeth need to be removed by installing the implants. If neither of these things is needed, then the first part of the surgery can begin. If the dentist needs to treat an issue, such as gum disease, or extract any teeth, you will need to wait until the mouth is fully healed to begin the implant process.
The first part of the process is installing the implant post, the part of the implant that holds it in place. Next, after the post heals, the prosthetic tooth is installed. Once this is again allowed to heal, the process is complete. Because the implants are grafted into the jawbone, they will feel unnatural at first, but over time as the implant bonds with the jawbone, they will begin to feel more and more like your own teeth.
