There are so many cosmetic dental procedures out there, it can be hard to understand them all. Dental implants are typically used for replacing missing teeth. The great thing about dental implants is that they look and function like your normal teeth. Our team at Innovative Dental are experienced in providing safe, good-looking and effective dental implants. Here is what you need to know about dental implants.
Two Types of Dental Implants
- Endosteal Implants: A titanium implant is inserted in which the replacement tooth is screwed (like a lightbulb). These are the most common type of titanium implants.
- Subperiosteal Implants: When there is not enough jawbone to support an implant, Subperiosteal implants are used when the jawbone cannot support the implant. Placed under the gum, but on/above the jawbone, these implants protrude through the gum to hold the replacement tooth.
Getting dental implants is a straightforward procedure with is very low risk. As long as you have good bone health, anyone can have the procedure. Our team at Innovative Dental will do an extensive mouth and jaw assessment to ensure that dental implants are suitable for you.
Stronger Than Natural Teeth
Titanium is used in spaceships, missiles and dental implants. Across the board, dental implants are strong than normal teeth. They are highly unlikely to break or show any signs of decay.
Designed to Match Your Natural Teeth
The dentists use colour and tooth matching techniques so your implant looks like it belongs in your smile. The implant will look identical to your other teeth so no one will know the difference!
After the procedure taking care of your implant is easy. Just ensuring that you keep your mouth clean and reduce infection by brushing regularly and doing salt water rinses. The overall maintenance of dental implants is quite simple and easy, so there is no extra stress placed on your routine.
At Innovative Dental, we recommend dental implants for their functional and aesthetic benefits. With a quality implant and crown, your smile and your ability to bite and chew can be perfectly restored.
