A good local cosmetic dentist will use this procedure to ensure a healthy smile. Cosmetic dental implants are replacement tooth roots. It is a cosmetic dental procedure, done in office. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. Dental implants, look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent. Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime. In most cases, anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for a dental implant. Patients should have healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implant. They also must be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Heavy smokers, people suffering from uncontrolled chronic disorders — such as diabetes or heart disease — or patients who have had radiation therapy to the head/neck area need to be evaluated on an individual basis. If you are considering implants, talk to one of our dentists to see if they are right for you.
Are you tired of taking your teeth out, have problems keeping them in, sick of slurring your words? Replacing your old removable dentures with permanent teeth is the option for you. Dental implants provide several advantages over other teeth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, implant-supported dentures are designed to be long lasting.
Implant-supported dentures also are more comfortable and stable than conventional dentures, allowing you to retain a more natural biting and chewing capacity. Implant-supported dentures will replace some of your tooth roots, your bone is better preserved. With conventional dentures, the bone that previously surrounded the tooth roots begins to resorb (deteriorate). Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact. In the long term, implants can be more aesthetic and easier to maintain than conventional dentures. The loss of bone that accompanies conventional dentures leads to recession of the jawbone and a collapsed, unattractive smile.
