Who doesn’t love smiling in photographs? A toothy grin always lets everyone know that you are content. But how do you feel if you have lost teeth? If you have ever lost a tooth and have gaps in your mouth, you might feel self-conscious about smiling or speaking with confidence. But missing teeth can do more than make us feel self-conscious about our appearance. Missing teeth can cause us not to eat our food properly and, in some cases, impact our ability to speak.
Our team at Supreme Dentistry can provide you with options that will restore your smile. Dental implant services
are one of our most popular cosmetic procedures. Find out about the best type of dental implants for you by calling 844.966.2333
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small titanium posts surgically positioned into your jaw, which will protect your other teeth from further damage. If you miss just one or several teeth, dental implants are a great alternative to bridges or dentures.
Dental implants are crucial to making sure your teeth and jawline are well protected so that your present teeth do not shift. Plus, dental implants can give you the confidence you lack because of a missing tooth or teeth.
Advantages of Dental Implants
Dental implants will have the visual appeal of a tooth–no one will know the difference between your natural teeth and your dental implants. Dental implants are permanent posts in your mouth that allow you to maintain the shape of your jaw. Unlike dentures, which can be removed and even lost, implants cannot be misplaced, and they last a lifetime. Plus, dental implants can prevent further damage to your teeth and gums because they can help prevent further bone loss.
Popular Dental Implants
There are three types of dental implants commonly used by dentists. At Supreme Dentistry, we specialize in endosteal and subperiosteal dental implants. The type of dental implants chosen for you will rely heavily on the health of your jawbone and what procedure your dentist believes is best for you. The two most popular options are:
- Endosteal Implants: The endosteal implant is a widely used dental implant. It is a safe procedure and is popular among dentists and patients. The endosteal implant is anchored into your jawbone, allowing a bridge or artificial tooth to be attached. For dentists to use an endosteal implant, a patient must have a good and healthy jawbone structure.
- Subperiosteal Implants: The subperiosteal implant is for patients who have a weak jawbone. The subperiosteal implant is attached to a metal frame on top of the jaw and gum tissue. Then, an artificial tooth is attached.
Dental Implant Materials
Dental implants are made from two different types of material: titanium and zirconia. Titanium posts are the most popular dental implant material used to form bone and plate implants. Titanium is consistently tested and has a stellar success rate for dental procedures.
Zirconia is another dental implant material. A relatively recent invention, zirconia is considered to be gaining in popularity. Zirconia dental implant materials include post and abutment. The combination of these materials allows zirconia to fight bacteria that could impact your gums.
