What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are created as an artificial tooth that can be put into your mouth in order to take the place of teeth that you may have lost. In order to do this, a dentist will place an anchor into your jaw, which they will then affix the dental implant directly to. In most cases, this will provide enough stability and support to fill any gaps that a patient has in their teeth. Dr. Keith Nguyen has worked with many patients at Pro Dental Group, in order to assure that they get the proper dental implant care that they need. In doing so, people can continue on with a normal life while they have a beautiful looking smile without anyone noticing that one, or more, of their teeth may be fake.
There are two types of dental implants that a person can consider. The first option is considered endosteal, which is an implant that is placed directly into the bone. In order to do this, a dentist will use a screw, blade or cylinder and place it directly into the jaw bone. Most commonly, this type of dental implant is the route that dentist will go for bridges or removable dentures.
The other option for dental implants are subperiosteal, or “on the bone” implants. Specifically, these implants are placed on top of the jaw with an existing metal framework, in order to hold the implant into place. Subperiosteal implants are most commonly recommended for individuals who are unable to have conventional dentures due to minimal bone height or other issues.
Whether you need endosteal or subperiosteal dental implants, Dr. Nguyen can work with you to find the best option. Dr. Nguyen has years of experience with dental implants and works to ensure that each of his patients are pleased with the treatment they get. Getting dental implants is rarely something that most people want to hear that they need. Dr. Nguyen makes the process a bit easier by providing you with a relaxing experience throughout this otherwise frustrating time.
When Should Someone Consider Dental Implants?
The reason that someone may need to consider a dental implant can greatly vary. In some cases, a disease may cause a person to lose their teeth or have their teeth taken out. In other circumstances, an injury or accident may have resulted in an individual losing a tooth or multiple teeth. There are other reasons that may present themselves as well. However, whatever the reason may be, individuals who are missing teeth and want to have them replaced can rely on dental implants to give them a full smile once again.
What Are The Benefits Of Dental Implants?
Dental implants provide a variety of different benefits that a patient should consider. The obvious one is that patients who are missing teeth are likely to be embarrassed by their missing teeth or feel self-conscious that people are always staring at any gaps they may have in their mouth. However, dental implants that are done by Pro Dental Group are often so clean and natural looking that most people will hardly be able to even tell that you have an implant in place.
Other people may want to rely on dental implants because they notice that their speech has changed due to missing teeth. No matter which tooth you are missing, having gaps in your mouth will result in air passing differently through your mouth when you speak. Because of this, the way that your voice sounds and the way that you talk, including issues with clarity, can be greatly affected if you are missing teeth. Luckily, dental implants will alleviate this issue and once again add structure to your entire mouth.
If you are missing one or more teeth, it’s also important to know that your remaining teeth can potentially shift out of place. This is because without the proper structure in place, your teeth and gums will move around. Without a dental implant, the potential for this to happen is even greater and patients who do not get dental implants run the risk of having further damage to their oral health.
Dental implants can also help people chew and enjoy food more easily, maintain facial features, add structure to your mouth and much more. Patients who are missing teeth will surely realize once they have an implant put in, how much they missed some of the most natural and simple pleasures in life.
