Tooth loss can be caused by many ailments like gum disease, tooth decay, or trauma. This can lead to complications such as bone loss, as the alveolar bone begins to atrophie. And with bone loss, your teeth may begin to shift around, causing bite problems and jaw pain.
Luckily, modern dental implant technology has an incredibly high success rate in correcting these problems. Dental implants are as strong as natural teeth, and you can restore a single tooth or a full arch. Implants can also be used to stabilize a denture or a bridge, increasing both utility and comfort. Keep in mind that the fastest bone loss occurs in the first six months after a tooth is lost, so don’t delay in seeking help.
A Few Things to Consider Before Getting Dental Implants
Your Age: For children or teenagers, bones (including the jawbone) are still growing, so placing a permanent post in the jawbone is not advisable until later on.
Pregnancy: Dental implants can wait until after baby is born.
Smoking: Smokers have a lower rate of success with dental implants than for non-smokers.
Disease: Patients with chronic diseases like hemophilia, uncontrolled diabetes, and significant immune deficiencies are at risk with dental implant placement. Of course, Done in One can assess your individual case and let you know.
Dental Implants Explained
A dental implant is a replacement for a missing natural tooth root. A titanium implant post is anchored into the jawbone, allowing a natural looking artificial tooth to be attached. The anchor stimulates the growth of new bone, bonding the implant firmly in place. The final result is a remarkably strong, stable tooth that looks just like a natural tooth.
