Despite many improvements in oral health, awareness of the importance of dental hygiene, and advancements in dental technologies, all too many people will lose at least one tooth during their lifetime. In some cases, they may lose far more than just one tooth. This is usually due to tooth decay, abscess, mouth injury, jaw injury or periodontal disease.
For many years, the only options when a tooth became compromised were to pull the tooth and leave a gap, get a root canal and crown or install a bridge to fill the gap. Now, there is an additional innovative, more natural and more permanent option for those who suffer tooth loss: a dental implant.
A dental implant is essentially a replacement root for a lost tooth. The installation of a dental implant allows an abutment and then a crown to be placed on it to help simulate a new tooth in a much more realistic and long-lasting way than other solutions.
As the dental implant heals in place and fuses with the jawbone, the dental implant forms a solid and secure foundation for a realistic looking tooth replacement effect. The replacement crown can be affixed permanently, but it can also be made removable if the client prefers.
Dental implants have a high success rate of around 98%. With proper care, they can in many cases last a lifetime. Just about any adult can be a candidate for dental implants provided the jawbone area is deemed receptive for it and they have not had any major health issues that could cause risk factors.
What are some of the other benefits and advantages of this type of tooth replacement solution versus others? They include:
While each individual client will require a different treatment plan, the general steps of receiving a dental implant are as follows:
Local anesthesia can be used for certain parts of the procedure to ensure client comfort every step of the way.
After the dental implant procedure is completed, the area should be cared for just like the other teeth in terms of flossing, brushing and using antibacterial rinses as you usually do. Regular dental checkups will also allow your dentist in Sarasota FL Prestige Dental to ensure the surrounding teeth are healthy and secure so that you can enjoy optimal oral health for a lifetime.
