What are Dental Implants?

Our teeth have two main parts; the crown, which is the tooth that you see above the gum, and the tooth root that secures it into your jawbone. Dental implants are posts that are placed into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth root. Once the implant is placed, a prosthetic dental crown is secured onto the implant to replace the natural tooth crown. Together, you have a restorative dental device that has fully replaced a missing tooth so you can enjoy all the benefits of having a natural tooth in place.

Why Get Dental Implants?

 
Our philosophy at the Dental House is to save your natural teeth whenever possible. But sometimes, a tooth cannot be saved, and the next best thing to replace it is a dental implant. These provide the benefits of having natural teeth as you enjoy the function, look, and feel of a real tooth.

When teeth go missing, the jawbone in the area of the missing tooth root begins to deteriorate, which can cause other teeth to shift and change the shape of your face. But dental implants can stimulate jawbone growth, much like a real tooth root does. This helps you maintain a more youthful facial structure and keeps the rest of your teeth where they belong.

Dental implants are made of titanium, which is one of the only materials that are compatible with human tissue. This helps spur new bone growth to secure the implant, so it stays strong while supporting the crown. And implants and crowns are a long-lasting solution for missing teeth because they are durable, as your body treats the implant like a real tooth root.

The following is a summary of the benefits of dental implants:

Enjoy the full function of a natural tooth
Dine in public without worry
Preserve jawbone and even spur new bone growth
Prevent your remaining teeth from shifting
Dental crowns look like real teeth, without the worry of cavities
Comfortable, once they heal
Restore your beautiful smile
Care for them naturally with the rest of your teeth
Durable and long-lasting

Different Types of Dental Implants

Dental implants are ideal for replacing one missing tooth and its root; however, implants can also be used to replace a series of missing teeth. The following are different types of implants and how they are used.

Support a Bridge:

When a series of teeth are missing in a row, bridges are the traditional dental solution to replace the teeth. You can also choose an implant supported bridge, which uses dental implants to secure the bridge into place instead of abutments, which alters the teeth on each end of the bridge. Dental implants do not rely on abutments, so preserve more of your own teeth naturally. You will also enjoy the benefit of preserving your natural jawbone.

Support Dentures:

Dental implants can support an entire set of dentures. Some patients prefer this over traditional dentures because they are permanent prosthetics that do not slip and irritate gums.

All-on-4:

This dental solution is used to replace six or more missing teeth in a row. Four implants are used and placed on the strongest part of your jawbone. Then a row of prosthetic teeth replacements will be placed on top of the implants, which can replace more than four teeth, even though you have only four implants.

If any of these pertains to you, talk to your dentist to learn your options. In some cases, we may be able to help you get dental implants. For example, if you have gum disease or excess bacteria, we may be able to help you clean and clear your teeth to prepare for the procedure. Our compassionate team will do their best to find a solution that is right for you.

The Dental Implant Process

 
Because there are different types of implants and each patient is unique, the process for each will be slightly different. However, there are some steps that most people share when getting dental implants. Knowing these may help ease any concerns patients may have about this dental solution. The following steps are some things that may take place when you get dental implants with Melton Dental House:

We will do a full dental examination with x-rays to see if you are a good candidate for dental implants.
The examination will also help us uncover any hidden dental issues that may need to be addressed before the implant procedure.
If you are a candidate for dental implants, we will move forward and take moulds of your teeth and other records to begin the implant process and schedule the implant surgery.
Any remaining tooth or root will be removed before we place the implant
If necessary, a bone graft will be put into place to build up any missing bone
When your implant is healing, your crown will be created to fit the colour and shape of your teeth
When your implant is healed, we will place the implant, and you now have a beautiful new tooth

Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?

 
Most patients who choose them can have dental implants as their solution to replace missing teeth. However, in some cases, we may have to correct dental issues or work together to find an alternative solution. The following are some reasons that one may not be able to get implants:

Failure of previous dental implants
Excessive jawbone deterioration or deformity
Late-stage osteoporosis
Gum diseases like gingivitis or periodontitis
Excessive tartar or calculus buildup
Our experienced team of dentists will identify any problems and discuss solutions that will best suit your individual needs. In many cases, such as gum disease or even mild bone loss, we may be able to help improve your oral health so your mouth can support implants. The initial dental examination will help us work together to find the best dental solution for you.
