Are Dental Implants Right for You?
Dental implants offer multiple benefits to patients. Some benefits may include the following:
- Restored tooth function
- Long-lasting results
- Up to 98% success rate
- Slow down bone deterioration
- Increased comfort and alignment of the bite
- Filling tooth gaps
- Decreased oral health problems
- The look and feel of natural teeth
There are several restorative options that dental implants can permanently secure to your mouth. Dentures and dental bridges replace many teeth or even whole arches of teeth. But our fixed hybrid dentures and overdentures, or “snap-on dentures”, offer more stability because we secure them using dental implant posts on your upper or lower jaws.
Dental implants are the only solution that gives you back 100% of your bite function. You don’t have to eliminate any foods from your diet because you can’t consume them. You get your confidence back when you’re in public and don’t have to worry about your restoration slipping or falling out. Because you can eat any food, you’ll have a healthy, balanced diet. You’re able to consume the foods that are most beneficial to your body.
Dental implants don’t need adhesives or other things to ensure they stay in place in your mouth. This means you have less maintenance as well. Dentures require time out of the mouth every night so that the gum tissue can rest. You have to clean the dentures properly of the adhesive each night. Special soaks and cleaners ensure that your dentures remain clean and bacteria doesn’t build up and make you sick. With dental implants, you just brush and floss like you would normally.
Which Tooth Implant Solution Should You Choose?
We can evaluate your oral health and determine if a dental implant procedure suits your needs. Dental implants are generally suitable for adults of any age. Even if you already wear dentures or a dental bridge, you can receive implants. Additionally, patients with gum disease, bone loss, and chronic medical conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure can receive dental implants. However, we do not recommend dental implants for children since they are still growing.
We’ll talk to you about all of your options before moving forward with treatment. You should get the absolute best restoration for your needs. We’ll discuss your concerns, oral health and smile goals, and your budget to ensure dental implants align with these. It also impacts how many implants you’re getting and how many teeth we’re going to be replacing.
Dental Implant Treatment at Frederick Center for Dentistry
Before treatment for dental implants, Dr. Goyal will assess the health of your teeth to determine if we need to remove a tooth or two. Additionally, he will examine your teeth to determine if your tooth loss is due to decay or gum disease. You can also discuss your goals and budget with Dr. Goyal in order to determine if dental implants are the right treatment option for you.
To begin implant treatment, Dr. Goyal will plan the oral surgery phase. He will surgically place a titanium screw in the jawbone. This post will mimic a tooth root and support a dental crown for tooth replacement. In most cases, the dental implant will require 3-6 months after oral surgery to fully heal and integrate with the bone. As a result, you will have a temporary crown placed during the healing process.
Once the bone has healed, we will install the final permanent restoration, which includes the abutment and dental crown. We will also color-match the dental crown to your teeth. This is so it can blend in with your natural and beautiful smile without standing out.
Dental implants typically require the same maintenance and oral hygiene care as natural teeth. Floss once a day, brush your teeth twice a day, and visit our dentist office bi-annually for routine dental cleanings and exams. With the right hygiene and care, dental implants can last you a lifetime!
What if I have gum disease or need a tooth extraction?
If you require gum disease treatment, periodontal therapy, or a tooth extraction before treatment, please let us know. We treat diseased or decayed teeth first to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough for treatment. Moreover, Dr. Goyal may examine your teeth to see if you would benefit from an implant-secured restoration instead, such as implant-secured bridges and implant-supported dentures.
As with any restorative procedure, we will conduct a thorough examination before starting any treatment. You are likely a good candidate for dental implants. However, we want to ensure dental implants are the right choice for your needs. One of the necessary requirements for dental implants is sufficient bone structure to support the implants. The implant posts have to fuse with the jawbone to provide the stability you know them for. We’ll recommend you for a bone graft or other procedure, and that will have to heal before getting dental implants. Having enough bone structure is a must.
