The Benefits of Dental Implants
Not only does a dental implant fill unsightly gaps in a smile, they are also important to deter bone loss which will occur when a tooth is lost. The titanium post fuses with the bone preventing it from dissolving.
Fixed bridges and removable dentures are not the perfect solution to missing teeth and often bring with them a number of other problems. They also provide only 10 to 15% of chewing power of your natural teeth, making it more difficult to enjoy many foods from your everyday diet.
When teeth are lost, the bone which held the roots of the teeth starts to dissolve, and so removable dentures — which use this bone for support — may slip or cause sores on the gums because the dentures will not be as stable.
Fixed bridges often require the preparation of adjacent healthy teeth. Decay, periodontal (gum) disease and other factors often doom fixed bridgework to early failure. For these reasons, fixed bridges and removable dentures usually need to be replaced every seven to 15 years, compared to an up to 25-year life span for dental implants.
For two decades, the staff at HAMBLIN DENTAL-IMPLANT & AESTHETIC in Sandy, Utah has been focused upon and energized by creating healthy, brilliant smiles for many patients who thought they were in hopeless dental situations. With the development and perfection of osseointegrated dental implants and aesthetic functional implant prostheses, patients regardless of age can enjoy a compliment of permanent teeth, custom designed to suit their individual appearances. Today, many patients who have a debilitating dental condition can be treated with a new process entitled TODAY TEETH.
Are you a candidate for dental implants in Salt Lake City?
The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant. Some people who have lost bone in their jaw can still get implants, but the bone must first be rebuilt using special bone-grafting procedures.
If your bone structure is adequate and bone-grafting is not required, the permanent dental implant, post and tooth restoration can be placed in one visit.
People who are currently wearing partial or full dentures can replace these with dental implants, or use implants to stabilize and secure the denture, making it much more comfortable.
People who are not good candidates for dental implants include:
- Young patients whose jawbones have not fully developed.
- Pregnant women
- People with existing medical conditions. If you can have routine dental treatment, you can generally have an implant placed. While precautions are advisable for certain conditions, patients with such chronic diseases as high blood pressure and diabetes are usually successful candidates for dental implant treatment.
- Patients who take certain medications such as steroids or drugs that suppress the immune system.
