What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements that were first developed about half a century ago by a Swedish scientist named Per-Ingvar Branemark out of a real need of patients to secure their loose-fitting dentures. Since then, the knowledge and engineering of implants have enabled dentists and their patients to expand their usefulness in many ways that were once not possible including replacing missing or lost teeth. Another benefit of implants is that they don’t require periodic adjustments which is the case with a denture or bridge. This aids in the patient’s ability to speak without having to struggle to pronounce words. Patients also retain their normal face shape and smile, adding to the confidence of the patient. Today, the implant techniques provide a wide range of tooth replacement solutions including:
- Single Tooth Replacement
- Anterior Replacement
- Posterior Replacement
- Full Arch Replacement
Based on the measurements that the staff at Ocala Dental Care will make, the implants mirror the size and shape of a patient’s natural teeth, and just as strong structurally as the patient’s original tooth’s root. Because they function and feel like your normal teeth, implants are an extremely popular choice for tooth replacement. Dental implants offer unrivaled support and durability for oral prosthetics.
The implant is surgically placed directly into the jawbone under local anesthesia, then allowed to integrate with the bone. The healing process takes three to six months while the implant is allowed to integrate with the bone. After tooth loss, the bone in the region will also diminish. By using titanium to replace the root a secure bond is created which more accurately replicates the original tooth bond and affixes to the bone cells of the patient’s jaw forming a lasting bond. In the end, this provides far greater comfort, stability and confidence for the patient. If patients have an insufficient amount of bone to support the implant, a bone graft can boost jawbone growth.
Post Implant Care
Although proper dental hygiene care is always recommended for maintaining good dental health, this is especially true once a patient has received a dental implant. Bacteria can easily attack sensitive areas in the mouth when teeth and gums are not properly cleaned causing gums to swell and jaw bones to gradually recede.
Patients are advised to visit their dentists at least twice a year to ensure the health of their teeth and implants.
