What Are Dental Implants?

Quickly becoming one of the most popular among patients and dentists alike, dental implants offer an innovative alternative to dentures or bridges.

Dental implants act as artificial roots that anchor your new teeth in place, providing greater support and stability.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically imbedded into the jaw. A crown or bridge is then permanently affixed onto the implant using an abutment.

While implants may be made from various materials, the implants we use at SEDA Dental are of the very highest quality. Dental implants are today’s best alternative to replacing your natural teeth.

Dental implants support crowns or dentures and look like real teeth, and feel like real teeth, because the implants are anchored securely and permanently. With dental implants you can eat and chew again without pain or irritation.

Benefits of Dental Implants

With dental implants you can:

  • Eat whatever you like. Implants can significantly improve your health by giving you the ability to chew a wider variety of foods.
  • Smile with confidence. Discolored or missing teeth can ruin your appearance. Implant supported restorations help increase your self-esteem.
  • Express yourself clearly or simply be understood. Implants increase the retention and stability of your teeth.

At SEDA Dental, the benefits most frequently cited by our dental implant patients are:

  • The replacement tooth looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth
  • Food tastes better and overall appetite is improved
  • Feels good to smile again without embarrassment over missing teeth
  • They are able to chew without pain or gum irritation
  • They can speak more confidently than before the implants
  • The peace of mind that implants are a permanent solution

Another very important benefit can be the reduction or elimination of bone atrophy or shrinkage, commonly associated with loss of teeth.

Advantages of Implants

Traditional dentistry can provide replacements for missing teeth using bridges, removable partials and dentures. However each of these solutions offers its own problems.

Bridgework usually involves altering natural teeth to provide a stable foundation for support of replacement teeth. Partials and dentures can at times, be very unstable. Leading to tooth mobility, denture sores or speech difficulties.

Dental implants don’t sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant. Your own teeth are left untouched. A significant long-term benefit to your oral health. Dental implants are secure and offer freedom from the irksome movement of dentures. They eliminate messy denture pastes and glues, and they can’t be misplaced, since they are permanent and non-removable.

While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.

Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss that often accompanies dentures. Another little known problem associated with tooth loss is a process known as “atrophy,” a shrinking of the jawbone that can progress relentlessly over the years. Bone atrophy not only affects jaw function, but can cause adverse facial cosmetic changes. Dental implants can reduce or eliminate this atrophy.

Replacing a Single Tooth

Missing just one tooth? One dental implant and a dental crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root. A dental implant provides several advantages over other tooth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like a natural tooth, a dental implant replaces a single tooth without sacrificing the health of neighboring teeth. The other common treatment for the loss of a single tooth, a tooth-supported fixed bridge, requires that adjacent teeth be ground down to support the cemented bridge.

Because a dental implant will replace your tooth root, the bone is better preserved. With a bridge, some of the bone that previously surrounded the tooth begins to resorb (deteriorate). Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact.

In the long term, a single implant can be more aesthetic and easier to keep clean than a bridge. Gums can recede around a bridge, leaving a visible defect when the metal base or collar of the bridge becomes exposed. Resorbed bone beneath the bridge can lead to an unattractive smile. And, the cement holding the bridge in place can wash out, allowing bacteria to decay the teeth that anchor the bridge.
