Permanent Solution For Tooth Loss - Dental Implants

One of the most exciting advancements in cosmetic dentistry in the past decade has been the introduction of dental implants. Dental implants are an excellent aesthetic option for the replacement of missing or lost teeth. This mode of treatment is indeed more expensive than a conventional denture, but if sufficient bone is present into which the implant can be placed, then dental implants are often the most ideal way to fill a space left by the loss of a tooth/teeth.

There are two stages to dental implants. At first the dental implant post is placed into the jaw by a specialist implant dentist (Periodontist or Oral Surgeon). When the jaw has healed over and the sutures have been removed, then it is possible to attach the man made dental crowns to the implant. These replacement teeth are attached to the dental implant, and are positioned just above the gum like real teeth which gives a beautiful aesthetic natural appearance. Not all patients are suitable for implants. A consultation with a DermaDental dentist along with specialist x-rays will determine a patient's suitability for dental implants.

A dental implant affords the new man made tooth the much needed strength to remain in-situ within the mouth, for a very long time. Dental implants allow patients to live a completely normal life with absolutely no need to worry about dentures falling out of the mouth during eating or talking. Dental implants can also be successfully placed in order to support fixed bridges or dentures, ensuring a very stable result with minimal risk of movement during normal daily function.

Dental implants are as close to real teeth as are available. Because the root of the implant is secured to the jawbone like a real tooth, it acts and feels like a real tooth. If you have a missing tooth or are looking to replace an earlier dental substitute, make an appointment to see a dentist.For more information call Goma Dental at 177-645-0704.

Dental implants are replacement of tooth roots. Dental Implants provide a strong foundation for removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. When a tooth is lost the specialized bony process that houses the tooth begins to resorb due to lack of stimulation. This causes a decrease in width and height of the bone in the area the tooth is lost. Neighboring teeth and opposing teeth begin to move into the space. This causes food lodgment, subsequent decay, gum disease and abnormal forces being transmitted to teeth leading to fracture of cusps which may necessitate root canal treatment or extraction. Loss of teeth can also cause the cheek and lips to collapse giving an aged look.
