Missing teeth not only affect your appearance when you smile but also cause chewing and speaking difficulties. All is not lost as this can be fixed. Implants are readily available to offer a permanent fix with results that feel and look natural. Woodbridge Dental Implants will allow you to smile confidently, chew correctly, and speak without any difficulties. The implants are custom-made and permanent fixtures that do not slip out of the mouth and pose a risk of gum irritation.
Let’s have a detailed look at implants.
Parts of Implant
The implants contain three parts which are as follows:
- Implant- It is a screw that permanently attaches to your jaw to serve as a root to your new tooth.
- Abutment- Are permanent or removable connectors that support and hold the teeth.
- Crown- It is a prosthetic tooth made of porcelain for durability and good looks.
Types of Dental Implants
You can use dental implants to replace a single tooth, multiple, and entire arches. The following are forms of dental implants:
They are placeholders like screws placed in the jaw to hold the false teeth. The procedure for this implant requires time for the implant to fuse and create a stronghold before the false teeth are fitted on the post to fit the surrounding teeth. Therefore, these implants require you to have a sound and healthy jawbone for the placement to work.
They rest on top of the jawbone but are still under the gum. A metal frame is placed under the gum on which posts are attached to secure the prosthetic teeth. If you do not want to undergo intensive surgery to remove the bone or do not have enough jawbone, these implants are best suited for you.
It requires a more complicated procedure where the implant is placed in the cheekbone rather than the jawbone.
They are used to replace multiple missing teeth and offer exceptional functionality in that the teeth can withstand rigorous chewing and biting.
If you do not have enough bone support, these implants help you minimize the pain associated with soreness and looseness associated with traditional dentures. They provide greater comfort, increased confidence and are painless and effective.
They are used to close gaps caused by multiple missing teeth. They help you maintain facial shape, prevent other teeth from shifting into the hole and help you achieve a healthy bite.
They are used to replace teeth destroyed by tooth decay, broken, and worn out, by providing strength, shape, and functionality to your teeth.
Mini dental implants
They are toothpick-sized implants that are incredibly narrow and used to stabilize lower dentures.
Techniques Used to Fix Dental Implants
These are as follows:
- Bone augmentation- Bone additives are used to fortify the bone to restore your jawbone.
- Sinus lift- The bone is added below the sinus to restore deteriorated teeth due to missing upper teeth.
- Ridge expansion- If your jaw is not wide enough, space is created to support the implant.
