Are Dental Implants Right For You?
A missing tooth can make you feel as if you want to hide your smile. Developments in dentistry in recent years have given you the option of replacing missing teeth with a strong, fully functional implant that gives the look and feel of a real tooth. Dental implants involve using a titanium implant as a substitute for your tooth root. A crown or bridge is then placed on this foundation to give you a normal bite.
It consists of a medical grade titanium alloy base embedded in the jawbone, with a dental crown fitted on top of it. It mimics the aesthetic and function of the natural tooth. Ask us whether a dental implant is suitable for you. In suitable candidates, this procedure can also be used to also replace a whole arch of missing teeth. No more loose dentures!
What are the benefits of dental implants?
There is a range of tooth replacement options available on the market today. Why do we recommend dental implants to our patients? There are several reasons, such as
- Permanent restorations made to last for life
- Single or multi-tooth treatments
- Non-invasive to your other teeth
- Maintain your natural biting patterns
- Support your facial structures
When placed inside your mouth, the bone around an implant begins a process that we call osseointegration, fully fusing the artificial root into the jaw and making it a permanent new part of your healthy smile.
Single Tooth Dental Implants.
An implant functions like a natural tooth root. When placed into your mouth, we can affix a porcelain crown on top of the implant to mimic the design and purpose of the tooth that is being replaced. This solution is appropriate for people who want to replace only one of their teeth.
Multi-Tooth and Full-Arch Solutions.
Implants are extremely strong and can be used in pairs to support dental bridges or even a full-arch denture. This stabilised alternative to conventional partials and plates makes an implant prosthesis more comfortable to wear, talk or eat with. You can choose this restoration if you are missing several teeth or all your teeth.
Why are dental implants needed?
Losing a tooth can be a traumatic and uncomfortable experience. Due to advancements in medical technology there are multiple options to restore your tooth to its full functional capacity.
Sunriver Dental & Implants offers fixed solutions to a missing tooth. Dental implants are titanium fixtures implanted into your jawbone to act as roots for your teeth. Unlike the bridge procedure, dental implants have the benefit of not disturbing the adjacent teeth.
What are dental implants made of?
The Dental Implants that we use are made of commercially and medically pure titanium. This is the same metal that has been successfully used in hip replacements - tried and tested for many years.
