Are You Missing Teeth? Find Your Smile Solution with a Dental Implant

If you hate and hesitate to smile because you have missing teeth, then a dental implant can make you love your smile again.

Why a Dental Implant Will Make You Smile

Many people have heard about dental implants, but few fully understand them. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are inserted into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. These roots then attach to a dental crown to restore the appearance and function of a smile. In addition to providing patients with a complete and attractive smile, a dental implant can prevent dental bone loss by preserving the natural jaw structure. This makes dental implants superior to other tooth replacement options like bridges and dentures, which only improve cosmetic issues but fail to prevent bone loss. These benefits have made them a popular tooth replacement option. While dental implant costs may be higher than dentures and bridges, dental implants are usually well worth it because patients avoid later pricey problems associated with those other options. By choosing a dental implant to replace missing teeth, patients can quickly regain a confident, healthy, and fully functional smile.

3 Incredible Innovations In Dental Implant Surgery

Dental implants have come a long way and are better, stronger, and smaller than they’ve ever been. These improvements greatly ease the placement procedure, healing time, and dental implant costs. While it once took many months and appointments to complete dental implant placement, now it’s very common to get same day dental implants. Three of the most important dental implant discoveries are:

  1. 3D Imaging and Treatment Mapping – New state-of-the art digital imaging has made it possible for dentists to closely analyze a patient’s jaw without the need for surgery. This greatly reduces the cost of dental implants and shortens the healing time. The outstanding clarity of these digital images allows for easier implant insertion, faster recovery times, lower dental implant costs, and the convenience of same day dental implants.
  2. Dental Bone Augmentation – Patients must have sufficient bone mass in order to be a candidate for dental implants. If they don’t, the implant dentist can strengthen the bone with a variety of augmenting treatments. Today, digital imaging lets dentists accurately and easily measure bone mass to determine whether the patient will need additional bone for implant placement.
  3. Mini Implants – These are very narrow dental implants that are mostly used to secure a lower denture to prevent embarrassing slippage.
