DENTAL IMPLANTS

Life’s simple pleasures can cause problems and pain to millions of adults that suffer the permanent loss of their teeth. Some have problems talking due to their dentures sliding or making noise. For others, the irritation and pain caused by their dentures are a constant reminder of the limitations they feel. A lot of them are worried by their looks and can feel that the loss of their teeth has aged them prematurely.

Nowadays, more and more people are putting an end to this problems by opting for dental implants, a revolutionary way to replace the missing teeth. Dental implants give a viable alternative to the limitations or the traditional dentures, bridges or missing teeth.

Dental implants are changing the way people lives. With these, they are rediscovering the comfort and assurance to eat, laugh and enjoy life.

NATURAL TEETH

  • Dental implants have been call ‘the best and the closest to natural teeth’ because they are used for supporting in a safe way the placing of artificial teeth and eliminate the instability associated with the adhesives or surface glues and removable bridges.

  • The implants are surgically placed, directly inside or on the mandible. Then small posts are secured to the implants, which go through the gums. The posts give stable support for placing the artificial teeth.

  • Dental implants are made of biocompatible materials that attach to human bone and tissues.


ADJUST TO YOUR NEEDS

Based on the needs of the patients a single tooth, a partial bridge or a whole set of teeth can be replaced by implants. Posts that stand out are fixed on top of the implants and are used as support for the artificial teeth. In function and appearance the implants are closer to natural teeth and the most viable alternative to conventional artificial dentures.

WHAT TO EXPECT

An oral and maxillofacial surgeon will determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. You will be evaluated over the basis of a number of considerations, including dental health, lifestyle, the quality of your mandible and your hygiene habits. In the consultation with your dentist, the oral and maxillofacial surgeon will plan your treatment plan of dental implants.


First the implants are surgically placed inside or over the mandible. These small pieces formed the needed structure to hold safely the replaced teeth. During the first three to six months after the surgery, the implants are beneath the gum’s surface, gradually joining with the mandible. During this whole time, the patients use temporary artificial dentures. Some patients report of minor discomfort or swelling immediately after the procedure, but most of them don’t suffer any changes in their everyday life.

While the implants integrate in the mandible, the replacement teeth must be fixed over the implants, tighten safely into the patient’s mouth, and resist the movement and daily pressure of chewing and talking. That’s why it’s important that these are made by a dentist duly trained in restorative techniques. Once the implants have join the mandible the second phase begins, in which the surgeon uncovers the implants.
