Dental Implant Restoration
In its most simplistic definition, dental implant restoration replaces missing teeth to restore facial and oral appearance. However, it means a lot more than restoring teeth for patients who have lived with the consequences of tooth loss. Dental implant restoration doesn’t just restore your teeth. It restores the smile, facial elasticity, and quality of life. At Randolph Center for Dental Excellence, Dr. Bryan Freeman and Dr. Cheryl Freeman, can provide a thorough examination and consultation to determine the dental implant restoration procedure that will work best for you. Take a step towards confidence, freedom, and a wider smile by considering replacing the gaps in your teeth with dental implants.
Why Do I Need Dental Implants?
Dental implants can be an option if other restorative dentistry methods have failed to provide you with the goals you hope to achieve. These can be dentures, bridges, or crowns. Losing one tooth can be easily fixed. However, tooth decay or loss at a larger scale needs a different strategy. Dental implants can be chosen by people who want a stronger bite, provide structure to their weakening jawbone, strengthen their other teeth, or look better when they smile. Everyone wants to be comfortable with their appearance.
What is Tooth Decay?
Tooth decay is one of the major reasons that push people towards dental implants. This can occur when you stop paying attention to your oral hygiene. It involves bacteria sticking to your teeth, forming plaque over time. It can damage the surface of your teeth if left untreated.
Avoid tooth decay ahead of time through the following steps:
|Brush at least twice a day.
|Avoid excessive sweets and soft drinks.
|Visit the dentist regularly to keep a close eye on your oral health.
How Can Dental Implants Help Tooth Decay?
Dental implants can help you prevent losing more teeth. Moreover, an implant can also keep the surrounding teeth safe from the plaque that leads to tooth decay. A gap can weaken the teeth’s roots, making them more susceptible to decay. Dental implants can prevent cavities by providing structure to nearby teeth.
What Happens During a Dental Implant Procedure?
Dental implant restoration is a fairly simple procedure. It is important to know there is a waiting period between surgeries when you are required to let your teeth heal.
Here are the steps involved in dental implant restoration:
|Get your teeth and jawbone examined.
|Decayed teeth will be extracted or bone grafting if required.
|Prepare for the first surgery (fitting of titanium screw to jawbone)
|Wait for it to heal.
|Prepare for the second surgery (placement of abutments).
|After it is healed, the abutment can accept the implant (artificial tooth).
