What are dental implants?

A natural tooth is composed of a root and a crown. Natural teeth and implant-supported replacement teeth share the same basic components. Both have a crown (the visible part used for chewing). In both cases, the tooth is anchored into the jaw by a root that is located under the gum. Titanium implants, however, are made of the same time-tested material used in artificial joints by surgeons for many years. Whenever you lose a tooth, you also lose its root and crown. In order to replace a tooth, the surgeon replaces the root with a small dental implant.

Bone heals and grows around the dental implant over time. Artificial teeth are held in place by a strong bond between the bone and titanium.  On top of the implant, an abutment (support post) is placed, followed by the replacement tooth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

1. More Comfortable

A natural-looking, comfortable fit without the slipping of typical dentures. In spite of the fact that traditional dentures and bridgework can improve the appearance of missing teeth, some people find them to be uncomfortable, inconvenient, and less natural-looking. The advantages of dental implants over traditional dentures or bridgework are clear to many people. Aside from being more aesthetic, dental implants also function and feel more like natural teeth. Furthermore, dental implants don’t require the sacrifice of healthy adjacent teeth to support bridges.

2. Maintain the natural shape of your face and smile

Having dental implants allows you to maintain the natural shape of your face and smile. In contrast to removable dentures, dental implants are permanently placed in the mouth and do not require maintenance. It also prevents bone loss and improves facial appearance. Having lost an entire tooth (crown and root), your jawbone may shrink, making your face appear older. It is possible to stop this process with dental implants. This is not the case with traditional dentures or dental bridges.

3. Permanent Solution

You don’t have to worry about losing loose parts. Dental implants are stable and comfortable. After placement, there is no need for adjustment. In most cases, it will serve its owner for the rest of their lives. For missing teeth, dental implants are the most structurally sound and cosmetically pleasing restoration. An implant replaces the root of a missing tooth, allowing it to hold a custom-made restoration such as a dental crown or denture, providing unparalleled functionality and an entirely natural appearance.

Our implant dentist welcomes a chance to meet with you and help you decide if dental implants are the right option for you if you are missing one or more teeth.

4. Enhances Self-confidence

At Rochedale Central Dentist, we have found that dental implants can dramatically improve the quality of life for our patients in Brisbane. Having a well-functioning smile that looks good and feels natural can improve our patients’ overall health and give them more confidence.  High-end dentures can be highly aesthetic, but they may shift when you talk, laugh, or chew. When you open your mouth, a partial denture may reveal a metal clasp or precision attachment, while a full upper denture covers your palate with hard, slick plastic. There are none of these problems with dental implants, making them the best aesthetic option.

5. Preservation of Natural Teeth

By choosing dental implants, you protect your dental health. It is not necessary to adapt existing natural teeth in any way, so any existing teeth can remain whole and healthy. There will be no additional stress placed on them by the fitting of unsightly clasps. They will instead benefit from dental implants that will prevent them from drifting out of position and affecting their bite.

6. Eat and Drink What You Like

There are times when even the best fitting dentures can slip, causing the sensitive gum tissue to be pinched or rubbed. Tough, chewy, or crunchy foods aggravate these issues. There is a possibility that you will feel discomfort or outright pain, so you may limit your diet accordingly. It is possible to eat your favorite foods comfortably with dental implants because they fuse with the jawbone.

7. Protective Effect on Your Jawbone

Dental implants protect your jawbone, which is one of the main reasons you should consider them. The dental implants provide essential stimulation to the bone, ensuring that your body knows it needs to continue regenerating old bone cells by closely replicating natural tooth roots. In addition to maintaining your remaining teeth’s stability and strength, implants prevent the loss of height and dimension between your upper and lower jaws.

8. Tooth Decay

The junction where the crown meets the tooth can begin to fail, allowing decay-causing bacteria to get into the tooth, which is one of the most common causes of crowns and bridges failing. With proper dental care, dental implants should last for many years, making them the most advanced way to replace missing teeth.

Dental Implants- FAQ

1. How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

There are several factors that determine the total cost of a dental implant procedure. The cost of dental implants is determined by your oral health, the number of implants, and the strength of your jawbone.  So, please drop in for consult and we will exam you and work out the cost. When compared to dentures and their lifetime maintenance costs, dental implants may be the more economical choice.

2. How Long is Recovery and Follow-Up Care?

The healing process of dental implants usually takes three months for most patients. Your dentist will only need to see you every six months for regular checkups, so you won’t require any follow-up care. Recovery from dental implants is generally easy, even though the initial procedure may seem daunting. 

3. Are Dental Implants as Strong as Natural Teeth?

Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, and there will be no difference between them. Implants are considered even stronger than natural teeth. Using dental implants, you’ll be able to chew any food regardless of its hardness.
