Dental Implants are the ideal method in tooth replacement dentistry and are considered to be the Gold Standard of treatment. Implants provide hard and soft tissue stimulation that preserves critical bone mass and sustains life in surrounding tissues. Implemented properly and selectively, without complication, they can provide years and years of enduring service. Implanted teeth, quite commonly, last for 20-25-35 years or more.
Implants are titanium “man-made tooth roots” that are surgically placed in the area of the missing tooth. Once healing has occurred, usually 4 to 6 months, the implant is restored with an abutment and crown. If more than one tooth is missing, more implants may be required to completely restore the area.
Implants can also be utilized to better secure removable appliances such as dentures and partials. They are easy to maintain with good homecare including daily brushing and flossing – just like natural teeth. Routine dental exams and x-rays are recommended to monitor the stability and for good dental health.
