What are Dental Implants and how do they work? Dental Advice from Top Miami Beach Dentist

Dental implants are among the most advanced options for restoring missing teeth.  Dental implants are metal posts that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth (crowns) or a bridge onto them. The results are highly esthetic and comfortable for patients. In fact, dental implants allow many patients to do away with dentures or removable partials.

How do Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants are usually made of titanium, which is the same inert metal that is used for prosthetics in humans. Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide a very stable support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges mounted to implants won't slip or shift in your mouth. This is an especially important benefit when eating and speaking. This secure fit helps dentures, bridges, and individual crowns placed over implants, feel more natural than conventional bridges or dentures. With dental implants patients can now avoid the discomfort or embarrassing situations caused by poor fitting dentures.

For most people, ordinary bridges and dentures are simply not comfortable or even possible, due to sore spots, poor ridges or gagging. In addition, ordinary bridges must be attached to teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth. Unfortunately, many times there are not enough teeth to support a dental bridge. An advantage of dental implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place. Dental implants take a one tooth problem and give it a one tooth solution.

Am I a good candidate for dental Implants?

To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. You must also commit to keeping these structures healthy and clean. Meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.
